This restaurant is my favorite eatery in town! Fantastic ambiance, owners are personable and welcoming. I have been here many times for both food and drinks and have only ever had a great experience. The burgers are delicious and are the specialty of Chef Charles in particular. Highly recommend and will continue to come here in the future!

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!!

We sat in the smaller pub room at the table next to the fireplace on a cold evening. It was cozy without being crowded (all tables spaced appropriately). The food is a fantastic mix of English pub favorites and modern culinary flavors all pulled off well without feeling too trendy. The winter menu is hearty composed of dishes like hot chicken and waffles and braised short rib. Everything looks, smells, and tastes fantastic. The drink menu is creative and well executed without feeling overwhelming. The staff is friendly and helpful. It appeared that they were doing a good job with processing the carry out orders as well, as no one was waiting long for their orders. Overall, this is a fantastic semi-hidden gem in Shelbyville that I hope continues to gain it's deserved following. Just not so much so that I can't get that fireplace table!
