Not great at the Red Lion! - Edit

Felt pretty misled by the listing on Happy Cow for the Red Lion. Drove a fair way to take my mum out to lunch. Attracted by the promise of vegan options being made available in addition to what was already on the menu.
Actually there was 4 vegan options one of which was the house salad. Out of 44 listed meals!
I had the vegan stack burger was a series of slightly charred / grilled veggies (pepper, courgette, onion, field mushroom) placed inside a brioche bun.
Lacking in taste; presentation poor; accompanying chips not hot on arrival; side of steamed veg passable...!
Attitude from the watress; coffee so strong it was virtually undrinkable, (once diluted by 50% it was ok but very bitter) ...all in all I would say - AWFUL!
I don't like to complain. I would rather engage and encourage. But when at the point of paying the manager tried to divorce himself from the listing saying it "was nothing to do with him or the pub" I was tipped over the edge. I suggested he remove his listing if he is so disintetested in receiving vegan guests!
Missing a trick I would say.
Very disappointing!

Pros: Nice Decor!

Cons: See above.

Vegan Fish and Chips! - Edit

Country pub set in idyllic Cheshire village. Vegan options clearly marked on the menu. Great place, tasty traditional pub food well prepared.
The "Fish" is battered tofu served with chips and mushy peas.

Pros: Vegan Fish & Chips, Pub Garden, Setting

Cons: No Vegan Desert, Only accessible by car
