user reviews of the Red Lion, Hythe

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Indeed, I'm here to confirm that 13 months on from the last review, and 7 since my own last visit, this pub has attained a good level of appeal to a broad pallette of people, and also of service/friendliness. Having spotted the 5 lunch promotion in Dec but not having needed it, this time full advantage was taken and the meals were tasty and not too small as one might expect. Food here appears to perform well, though not at the expense of the ale side: from Whitstable and Ramsgate last time to a current emphasis on the new Wantsum brewery offerings, beer here always seems to be on song. My minor criticism would be they were perhaps a little unseasonal, but no matter if they're kept well. The landlady, and the busy (and rather attractive) barmaid were both chatty and efficient in serving up the drink and grub. If in Hythe and in need of sustenance, you would do worse than to start here. Then move to the splendid Three Mariners a few streets on.

Has now reverted to it's original name of The Red Lion. The exterior could be a bit more welcoming but the welcome inside was excellent. It's clearly had a bit of cash spent on it since my last visit when I remember it as the Watersedge. There are now seperate eating and drinking areas with an overflow eating area out the back. There are sofas for those who like to drink in a prone position plus other more traditional seating. There's a bookcase with reference books which is handy for settling any bar room debates and fresh flowers on each table added another nice touch to go with the friendly and efficient service. Beers were Gadds No 3 & No 5 and Native from the Whitstable Brewery, all in good nick. This looks like a pub on the up.
