user reviews of the Red Lion Inn, Knapton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Excellent place, well worth a visit, from any distance for either food of drinks.

I am fortunate enough to live within walking distance of this village (edge of town) gem. The building is hansom and pleasantly decorated inside, with room for drinkers and lots of dinning tables too. Also there is a very nice open fire.

Two to three real ales are served and seem to be well kept. Most people however will visit for the excellent food menu, a cut above the norm. The regular menu is good and well done, with the usual pub favourites served to a high standard at less than £10 for an excellent main course. I am usually drawn to something from the specials board, which for once, is truly something a bit special: more substantial meat dishes, game and fish. Last time I visited I enjoyed venison with wild mushrooms, excellent.
I'll say it again, well worth a visit.

We had an absolutely excellent meal here on Saturday night (6 February 2010). I understand the chef was away, but the food was absolutely spot on. Three of us had the sirloin steak (and I usually regard steak as a bit of a lottery!) which was cooked precisely as ordered and was the tenderest I've had this side of the Atlantic. Steak took centre stage on the plate, with no fuss or nonsense - plain green salad and hand cooked chunky chips were the perfect accompaniment. Ham hock terrine starter was beautifully presented, and was full of flavour; my crayfish tails lacked a bit in presentation, but were very flavoursome. Only slight criticism relates to the accompanying bread roll, which was one of those nasty supermarket frozen jobbies - let's have some nice granary bread and a bit of garnish please! Sea bass also well cooked. My glass of house Merlot hit the spot, and I understand (from the number of pints consumed!) that the IPA was on top form. All in all, it did what it said on the tin - unpretentious pub food cooked to perfection, good beer, warm ambience. Many thanks!

Very impressed by this cosy little pub - smartly presented interior with open fire, traditional pub grub with a few surprises, Landlord and Black Sheep at the bar.

The food really is very good indeed, the crust on the pie of the day would silence the fussiest of critics - terrific.

The owner is good fun, I imagine their Sunday quiz is a riot.
