Ate in the pub. Has the pork shoulder with the best cabbage i have ever eaten & fried potato dumpling all in a maple glaze. FANTASTIC! Great service. Excellent drinks. Small/appropriate portions. Desserts are delicious! The chef knows how to pair food. Is it pricey? A little but the chef prepared food made to order is worth it. Give it a try!

The Red Lion has new owners and they are doing a phenomenal job of breathing new life into this hidden gem of Shelbyville! Their daily specials make it really hard not to eat out every single night! We became hooked after attending the Boxing Day Brunch with Traditional English Breakfast and a lovely Breakfast risotto. We plan to attend the 4 course Valentine's Dinner this month also! The inside dining area is very large with plenty of space between tables, so it doesn't feel too crowded during these Covid times, and all the staff wears masks appropriately. Come try out Shelbyville's best- kept secret!!

The customer service at The Red Lion is out of this world! I picked up a to-go order recently and I was personally escorted to the bar to pick up my food and then back to the patio after being given a tour of the facility. The staff is phenomenal and the food is incredible. The Red Lion is definitely a hidden gem in the heart of Shelbyville.
