At the end of a few days stay in Cotswolds, we were looking for somewhere for dinner before returning home. Not a particularly friendly welcome, but the food was far better than expected - fabulous lamb shank, fresh veg and mash and steak/chips. Based on the food, I would recommend the Red Lion, even though we had to wait 1/2... More

Lovely drive into the Cotswold which is what I was looking for, but this lovely old hotel was quite isolated in a village. Trust me to not think that no air-conditioning in the UK would be an issue. It was quite a warm day which surprised this Aussie. Needed the small fan on day and night. Lovely old pub which... More

We thank you for mentioning us in your review, however we think you may have the wrong Red Lion Inn - we are based on the High Street in the busy town of Chipping Campden (and are not isolated as stated). We also do not serve BBQ ribs or have a dog called Coco. However we wish you well with... More

During our stay in Chipping Campden we enjoyed lunch and dinner (twice) at this great little pub. The meals are great value, the staff friendly and plenty of choice of beers. The beer garden is a terrific spot when the sun is out and you can make use of the little bar at the back of the pub.

Positives: Friendly welcoming staff Nice location with parking Room decor nice Large shower Bed comfortable and clean Negatives: Walking in initially everything looks nice within the room. Once in and using the room, I started to notice areas had been missed for a while when cleaning/dusting. For example I knocked the radiator on and noticed a large amount of dust... More

Nice accommodations and a great pub right in downtown Chipping Campden on the Cotswold Way. We had a nice room on the 2nd level (Mardle?); our friends were up one floor in the Dover room with the peaked ceilings. We were both very pleased. Nice outdoor beer garden for an pint in the afternoon - recommend the Olde Trip ale.... More

We were 2 couples hiking southbound on the Way and started here. Rooms were charming and unique, even if a 2 story walk-up and small. We had beers in the courtyard bar as a mid-afternoon break and enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. Nice folks and enjoyable stay. Decent value. Would stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay in the quaint little market town of Chipping Campden, and it makes for a great location to explore the surrounding area of the Cotswolds. Which I highly recommend that you do- I am amazed that it has taken me this long to venture to this part of the world, and already can't wait to visit again.... More

Stayed for one night in the downstairs Jethro Room. Like other reviewers said it was spotlessly clean with a lovely large bathroom. Food was also fine although we thought breakfast could have been better - tepid tea and poor quality hot food items and nobody asking if we wanted re-fill or more toast. Biggest moan was the noise from the... More

We have just spent a most enjoyable three night break at the Red Lion. The whole place is just so full of character and the staff great. Had the "Jethro" room with the four poster bed, it was most comfortable. The bathroom was enormous! The room has been refurbished, and although on the ground floor was silent at night, and... More
