Never even heard of this hidden gem! We were invited by friends for a night of fun. Evening meal and a room for the night. There was approx 40 of us, 20 stayed over. We were given a very warm welcome, option to sit inside or outside around the fire pits. Food was lovely, good value for money and the accommodations was clean. Would definitely recommend.

Three of us had fabulous meals - the chef went the extra mile and gave us lots of extra gravy for our lamb shanks :) Delicious.

Wine menu was decent.

Fabulous service too.

Stayed last weekend with a large group for a friends 50th. What an amazing place!!! Mark was the ultimate host and couldn’t do enough for us. Food was amazing, staff welcoming and the whole pub/ hotel had a nice cosy feel. The cellar room was such a fab separate private room. Loved the fire pits and wooden sculptures! Can’t wait to come back very soon!!!!

What a place, we came down for a night and a 50th birthday gathering with friends from cheltenham and the only way I can describe my experience at the red lion was first class. Incredible staff and one of the best landlords ever in mark..
We will definatly be coming down again for another visit and also recommend to loads of my more local friends in London.

There as a couple for an early evening meal. Every table taken so asked to wait at the bar with a drink while a table was freed up. First table was affected by exuberant party on next large table. A member of staff suggested a move to a second table. Throughout the landlord and staff went out of the way to be helpful , professional and obliging. My personal thanks to the landlord for going out of his way to make the evening a success on a very busy night. And the meals were excellent, pie to die for.

Great selection of drinks, cosy inside environment, and amazing outside area with fire pits and giant wooden animals. Only downside was that they ran out of the spirit I was drinking and didn't replenish so that was that. Food-wise, we all had the HUGE burger which was tasty and came with a nice salad, as well as chips. I visited in the evening so would be interested to see what it's like in daylight.

Every once in a while one is fortunate enough to discover a hidden gem. Such is the Red Lion in Bookham Surrey. Nestling in the shade of the North Downs, this stunning, characterful traditional pub and restaurant is truly exceptional. My wife and l (and our beloved dog Todd) enjoyed a fantastic evening here. We had steak, which was cooked to perfection and two or five drinks from the comprehensively stocked bar. The personal attention we received from Mark the proprietor made us feel like especially valued guests. The room in which we stayed the night was exquisitely decorated, cosy and inviting.
Would we stay there again? On a scale of 1 to 10 ……. Definitely 11

An amazing experience and superb pub, i can not recommend this venue more highly, i organised a 60th birthday lunch in the cellar room last saturday 25th sept. Mark the pub owner was so helpful and so was his manager Charlotte. They went to great lengths to ensure our party went well. The food was excellent and very good value for money, the staff were so helpful. We will definitely return again.
Mark recommend Lin a local cake maker her cake was amazing too.

On Wednesday 22nd of September the Red Lion and Blake’s Cakes hosted a free sampling table evening for a new venture of cream teas. The fresh finger sandwiches sandwiches and cakes were expertly made by Lindsay our locally based baker. .The table was a feast for your eyes as it was laden with an abundance of mouth watering delights. The selection of the fare will be changed regularly so a nice surprise awaits you. The strawberry and fresh cream Victoria sponge was superbly light in texture. You could taste the syrup in the crunchy flapjacks, and my favourite was definitely the delicate raspberry tarts. The pastry was delicately sweet, homemade shortcrust, filled with raspberry flavoured fresh cream and topped with a single juicy raspberry. The chocolate brownies oozed with rich dark chocolate.and small chunks of chocolate that contrasted well with a firm base. The mango cupcakes were impressive, the sponge being infused with mango extrac,as was the icing. Finished on the top with a gold chocolate ball. Attention to detail was extremely impressive. I would highly recommend booking. Lindsey also makes cakes for special occasions to your requirements. You can contact Lindsey on no: 07523 211720.

Fantastic pub, restaurant and accommodation. A lot of pubs could learn from this place on how to create a great atmosphere, top not attentive service. All round a great experience. I’ll definitely be looking to stay here again as would make a really good stop over before a trip from Gatwick. Definitely my go to place from now on when I’m in the area. Well done you should be proud of what you have achieved here.

Came across this delightful place by accident and boy are we glad we did. It doesn't look much from the outside but once you go round the back you arrive in what I can only describe as a magical setting!!
You have wooden dinosaur carvings, fire balls and a wonderful landscape of such eclectic deco.
The hospitality we received on arrival was out of this world and Mark the owner was extremely accommodating to our needs for our upcoming event.
Cant wait to celebrate at this lovely place on NYE!!

Lovely pub and gardens.
Lovely staff friendly,very caring and helpful
Only reason gave 4 stars and not five is because the bed was too low and not very comfortable.
Apart from that we realy enjoyed the stay

Great setting and very friendly, welcoming staff who provided very good service - quick without being intrusive.
A very pleasant outdoor seated area which is where we had lunch.Our request to move to a table other than the one they initially offered was accommodated instantly and without any problem.
In this respect they were very sensitive to Covid concerns.
The food was fine although some of it a bit underwhelming. Nothing awful and all acceptable but Sunday roasts lacked flavour, meat was wafer thin and tasteless.
Portions large, veg excellent, varied and fresh.The steak and ale pie was a bit dry and the pastry lacked flavour.
Burgers were excellent.Chips outstanding.
Desserts looked superb, tasting okay without being outstanding - the chocolate tart was the star.
At £120 for 5 (2 alcoholic drinks), it was not excessive and the service more than made up for any issues elsewhere.

Mark and his team are super hosts! My family and I stayed at the Red Lion and Cellar Room and were celebrating a 90th birthday. We were offered a varied, good value menu with an amazing choice of beverages, particularly gin! The fire pits and particularly the huge marshmallows to toast were fantastic! The rooms are comfortable with an interesting collection of pictures all adding to the memories of our stay!
The Red Lion is full of character, eclectic, relaxed and definitely great fun!
