Have now been to the Red Lion on several occasions, and it certainly doesn't disappoint. Good , affordable food in very pleasant surroundings. The staff are friendly and efficient. I would certainly recommend the establishment. I can't coment on the rooms, but if they are as good as the restaurant visitors can't go wrong.

Went to visit family and friends. The Red Lion was in the middle of the 2 places, just wanted somewhere to crash for the night. The free breakfast was really good. The only downside was that when I left the towels on the floor they weren't changed so had wet towels the next day.

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

Dear Alison, I have recently taken over the Red Lion and intend to re-open September 2013, and should you stay in Market Rasen again I can confirm that the points that you raised will all be addressed. Thanks, Darren 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
