We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed it. The staff were really friendly, the room was very clean and the food was excellent, we had the full English and it was really filling, we will definitely be going back again and would recommend it to friends and family.

A colleague and I stayed at The Red Lion for one night as part of a business trip and I have to say, we were thoroughly impressed. The service was fantastic, the rooms were very well presented and the breakfast was superb. I have already recommended this hotel to my friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. Keep...

as the title suggests, this restaurant is in need of some attention. I don't know the M,O of the restaurant, if they are looking to please the high numbers of local families with young children, then this restaurant probably delivers. If they are looking to impress an audience of people from beyond the towns boundary, then they are missing the... More

We stayed here last Friday night as we were visiting Lincoln Xmas market - the place was great. We checked in with no fuss and the room was lovely, clean and nice bathroom - shampoo and soap was provided. We then set off to the market - on return we went into the bar - this has recently been transformed... More

Stayed as had eaten there several times and found to be good with nice decor and ambience. Room appeared tasteful with good fixtures and fittings but closer inspection revealed lack of attention to day to maintenance- dirty toilet and bathroom. Dust everywhere. No soap provided to even wash hands. No mattress protector. Powdered milk in uncovered cup for tea and... More

This was the final meal of our holiday and we wanted it to be a good one. We weren't disappointed! Excellent service from the attentive and friendly staff. The 3 courses from the blackboard selection were great value at £19.95. Having a limited menu of 5 choices for each course made it better, although we both struggled, such were the... More

Highly recommend The Red Lion for accommodation, food and service. The staff were friendly and attentive upon arrival and I was shown to my room which was compact, clean and very tastefully furnished. I had an evening meal which was amazing, food was fresh and cooked to perfection, the waiting staff made you feel welcome and provided excellent service. I... More

Good food, all three courses, excellent guest beers and the coffee at the end of the meal was excellent. Thank you Joel the chef. Just a couple of minor comments, more veg variety with the mail course would have been nice, as a side possibly. Service was also excellent as was the atmosphere. Highly recommended.

The menu is interesting and our meals were cooked well. The fish was fresh and for the price we had a good meal. If I had to criticise the red lion, I would say in the summer evenings when the fires are unlit, it lacks a warm atmosphere. A few curtains instead of the stark blinds might have helped. I... More

We went here for Sunday lunch, which was OK - beef was very tough & grizzly & the waitress gave us steak knives! Rest of meal was Ok. I went to the ladies as we arrived & there was no loo roll, I informed a member of staff about this. When I went back at the end of the meal,... More
