Decent beer (St Austell) , decent food and a friendly barmaid. Worth a look.

Shame the last review was so negative as it does not reflect the pub as it is today .. Beer is always top notch with a good selection.. Friendly and the food seems to be popular. Friendly clientele and nice surroundings .. big beer garden/yard in the summer with ample seating

Oh dear, I had been looking to my visit to the Lion. Previous visits always yielded good beer, nice bar-maid and pleasant company. Usually London Pride plus one or two others. An evening of Pride and Curry and Pub conviviality, lovely.
Disappointment then to be greeted by sullen pimply Bar Boy, disinterested and fed up. But worse was to come, 13 Lagers (thirteen, including the fridge bound stuff) and ONE ale... Doom Bar. Never was a beer better named. I am not a fan of this stuff and would avoid it but it was the only choice. I enquired of mine host what other beer there was "thats it" was his poetic and informational response. I guess in a high street that also contains the Summoner and Bunters you can afford to ignore your ale drinkers safe in the knowledge that they have nowhere else to go... I score it 6, but based on prior experience. Please, fire the sullen youth, bring back the nice girls and get a bloody beer in.

I love everything about this pub - the atmosphere, the prices, the food.

HOWEVER - there is one thing that really lets it down. The toilets.

I dont know if it is just me but I find it really off putting going somewhere that doesnt even have sanitary bins for their female customers to use. And the hand dryer is probably older than me!

In saying that the loos are generally quite clean (apart from on a Saturday night but you cant help that when there is only 2 WCs!)

I would have given this place a 10 as it is always a friendly atmosphere and the only place in Sittingbourne for the grown ups to go and dress up (ulike The Vineyard!) but the loos really are a mass let down.

Go into the Red Lion about once a month, went in last night (29/6/10) and the football was on. As usual the man behind the bar served us quickly and was friendly. Beer was nice, glasses clean etc. The bar and toilets are clean and tidy. I have never eaten in here but the menu looks good pub food. Well worth a visit if you are in Sittingbourne.
