I come regularly to Newbury for business. Always stay at Red Lion when possible, a lot thanks to the quiet surroundings, a good pub and meals, great breakfast and offcourse thanks to Robin that is a fantastic landlord always making me feel welcome. This is really a nice change from the normal stays at boring business type of hotels with... More

We stayed at this old inn as a stopover on a journey to Cornwall from Norfolk. A good quality and spacious room at a good price in a cottage type building next to the main inn. A very friendly welcome and help with our luggage followed by an excellent dinner. First class service in the restaurant and some beautifully cooked... More

We had dinner on a saturday evening and the pub was packed, mainly with guests wanting a meal. Ive eaten here before and the food is... More

Pub was packed early on a Friday night which was testimony to the excellent food available. Great selection of specials and all food served promptly with big portions. Very friendly staff with a good selection of beers. Just how a pub should be.

We stayed for one night last Thursday. Stayed in Arran. Very impressed. Little thatched porch, nice cosy little entrance hall. Upstairs is a rounded beamed bedroom with a comfy bed, good facilities and a nice bathroom with shower. The inn is lovely and contrary to a couple of silly comments [ in the restaurant reviews ] Robin the landlord is... More

We went there for an evening meal as a group of five. We all had something different from the menu and all our meals arrived together and was all hot - excellent! Really well presented and good quality food, with excellent flavours and textures. The staff were all very friendly and attentive without being over the top. I'd happily recommend... More

Stayed here for one night. Really impressed with the quality of the food and drink - excellent. We stayed in the Lochalsh room. The bed was comfortable and the room clean and tidy. The bathroom was enormous but disappointingly fitted out. No bath and the shower leaked badly. It was being replaced that same week. Oh please put in a... More

Stayed for a couple of nights on separate weekends in June. Food and beer good, rooms clean and comfortable. Staff very friendly and useful. Lovely little pub to hang out in, not the most extravagant place near Newbury but excellent value for money.

I stayed here on a business trip having had the Inn booked for me. I got there late due to the wonderful M25 but Robin had left his mobile for me and came and showed me to my room and even got me a sandwich even though the kitchen had closed. Room was lovely, had everything you need. Breakfast was... More
