The room is fantastic. The bed is very comfy and my wife even found herself lounging in the big bath. The late check out means you can have a proper rest. The Inn is traditional with small rooms and wooden beams giving a lovely atmosphere. There is even an intriguing old well in the Carpark. The food was fantastic and... More

We was heading back home when we came accross this beautiful pub. The guy that we spoke to. Didn't catch his name but he said he was... More

stayed here for one night with my wife, interesting room as in an old building its how the floor plan works out. Our room No.8) should really be for a single as the bed not very big, upstairs bathroom with a low shower over a roll top bath so impossible to shower and the supplied plug for the bath didn't...

Very old (500 years plus) coaching inn in a pretty village very near to Banbury (famous for its Cross). Food good and plentiful and staff extremely helpful. This is an Old English Inn and their breakfasts are second to none.

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend (15/5/15). Whilst it is an old building set in nice quiet village the road can get busy with traffic. The staff were excellent from the moment we arrived especially the Liverpool supporter ha ha. At times it did appear they was short of staff but it did not affect the service provided. The... More

Loved our stay in this 400 year old inn. A very comfortable room with free WiFi. Lovely breakfast and we ate dinner in the bar area too. What atmosphere! Many original features, but tall people take care with the low ceilings!

Nice food... When the chef had actually got what we wanted to order (from the menu) in stock! Miserable staff ... Product knowledge, what's that? The lady had only been on shift 4 hours and still couldn't tell us what the soup was Shame we're local. Keep trying the place Customer service in the restaurant = 0

I visited the Red Lion this week for a once night stay whilst on a business trip. First impressions great, old, with character and quirky. Breakfast was superb with no complaints, I never had an evening meal although the menu looked good. I stayed in room 15 which was on the top floor and classed as a superior room. It... More

If you're fed up of ' same old, same old' impersonal places - this is the place for you! Every room is different and all have their own quirky personality. ... sometimes the shower takes an age to run hot, the floorboards are uneven - but it's all part of the charm. The welcome is warm, Dan and the team... More

We chose this inn for it being central for 3 couples who met on holiday having a re-union and because it appeared to have plenty of character. Some parts of the inn are over 400 years old with magnificent fireplaces in the bar and some of the bedrooms. The bedrooms certainly have character, with 2 of our rooms having the... More
