Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Reservations
Description: The Red Lion is set in the tiny village of Avebury which is three miles in radius and some 2000 years older than Stonehenge! Refurbished Winter 2013 the pub is 400 years old and located at the centre of the stone circle where every six weeks a pagan festival is held. It is in the Top Ten list of most haunted pubs in the country and has been seen on TV as such. The main ghost is that of an old landlady "Florrie" who was killed here by her husband. Ghosts aside, this destination food house is a lovely thatched listed cottage with cobbles and a large mill stone in the car park and low ceilings, beams and traditional wood furniture with a modern twist inside. Food is served from an extensive main menu and specials board, offering a good selection of quality pub fayre with a good range of wines available to complement the experience or a choice of real ales if preferred. The Wadworth brewery is only two miles away! Our clientele are generally tourists and visitors but there is a friendly welcome for anyway wishing to have a drink or dine.

Microwaved scallops, covered in rock hard bacon wasn’t the best choice. Medium rare rump, wasn’t medium rare, served with the ugliest coleslaw I’ve ever seen. I asked for salad and got a lump of grass from the garden served with half a tomato.

This was a very welcome lunch stop towards the end of a walk starting from Silbury Hill.

Very popular and busy, but we were very promptly served by and the food was excellent in quality, quantity and value. Friendly and attentive staff. Felt pleasantly full and rejuvenated to continue our walk.
