Old Red Lion Restaurant Reviews
Jeanette Bourne - 25th February 2012
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.
