Type(s) of Food Served

English / Modern British / Pub Restaurant


The restaurant is set just off the bar area, which has a floor of Yorkshire stone and traditional and tasteful furniture, and including the bottom snug area has capacity for about 40 diners, where dogs are allowed in at all times. The restaurant area is on two levels, with another small snug area.

The restaurant will hold approximately 56 diners.

Everything is bought locally and when fresh. All meals are cooked from scratch and freshly prepared, so on normal service there will be about a 15-minute wait after ordering, and a little longer on busy nights. We decided that diners would prefer quality rather than a quick microwaved meal.

My Husband and I have eaten at the top Red Lion quite a few times now. The service is always impeccable and to a very high standard. The food is very tasty (from a Sunday lunch to whatever else is on the menu). In particular, there is a young waiter/bartender who is an absolute credit to the pub. His name is Aydan and nothing is too much trouble for him to assist you.

All in all, dining there is a very pleasant experience and we would recommend the top Red to anyone who likes good food, a cosy ambiance, and excellent service.

My girlfriend and I have eaten here several times, always found the food to be good and reasonably priced. There can be a bit of a wait for food but this is usually because it's busy.

Recently rented a cottage in Grenoside. Visited the Old Red Lion every day we were there, either for just a drink after a long walk in the local countryside or popped back for a meal.

Why did we keep going back? The service. Each afternoon we were warmly welcomed and our dog was given treats. There appeared to be different staff on each day, made no difference, everyone was friendly.

Obviously the food was also worth going back for, too. A smaller menu than I would have expected. However, this may be why the meals were presented and cooked well.

The first meal I had of homemade beef burger was quite filling for me, so the following meal I had the starter of pasta stuffed with goat's cheese and a side salad, thinking this would be a smaller portion for me. Gosh if that was a normal starter portion it was a meal in itself.

Good pub food, presented to restaurant standard. Excellent service.

Four of us went to the Old Red Lion (Grenoside) on Friday 11th February after hearing the food was good. Have to say we were not disappointed.

The menu has a good range through sandwiches and lite bites, to grills and specials. Our party had two starters: garlic mushrooms on toast and a goat cheese tart. Our mains included two haddock, one lamb rump and one venison. Two desserts followed and all the food was excellently cooked and well presented.

With a few drinks and bottle of wine our bill came to 92.A little pricey by pub standards but treat it more like a restaurant for food quality. Would we go again? Definitely.
