The Red Lion Arlingham
The Red Lion in Arlingham serves food both at lunchtime or in the evening. Their food menu has many options, from simple snacks to something a bit more substantial. I’ve enjoyed their charcuterie board and cheese board and the squid looked great too. They had both continental lagers, cider and some local real ales, including some by Uley Brewery.
