The Red Lion at East Haddon

The Red Lion is a beautiful country pub in the small Northamptonshire village of East Haddon. Built in the county’s distinctive ironstone, this food-focused pub has three spacious dining areas, each with subdued modern decor.

The Red Lion won a Michelin Bib Gourmand (awarded to establishments that serve good food at reasonable prices) for the first time in 2012 and continues to hold this accolade.

The food here is very much in keeping with the location and feel of the pub – beautifully cooked, traditional, seasonal British classics, often with a twist. But there are also a few surprises.

Great Food Club’s reviewer said: “This must be one of the best dining experiences in the East Midlands. Expect superb flavours, well-presented, balanced portions and a warm and friendly welcome. The slow-cooked lamb, turnip gratin and buttered leeks was expertly cooked and presented, while the partridge with mashed potato and winter vegetables was a magnificent autumn dish.”

    Had a very pleasant lunch here not so long ago – look forward to returning.

    My husband and I met our old friend Barry from Northampton here yesterday lunchtime. Barry often drives out here for family lunches; for us, driving from Leicester, it was our first visit. But it certainly will not be our last! Our lunch was delicious, the menu interesting and well planned, generous portions, perfectly cooked and presented, lovely helpful waitress, and all great value. The pudding menu was very tempting but we were just too full (next time definitely) East Haddon is a beautiful village, the Red Lion everything you could want in a village pub and ‘eatery’ .

    We have been going about once a month for many years, at lunch times. We all like a bargain and they currently have no offers, so only going about every 12 weeks.
