We stayed 30 minutes and left, the smell of dog was over-powering, very tired decor, shower dribbled out tepid water. Ended up paying to stay somewhere else. We heard later that the brewery are closing it down so perhaps this explains the lack of love and attention to the rooms. It may suit some people as it is dog-friendly.

Saw reviews saying that folk couldn't get in at 5, advertised start of check-in. You should know that this is a pub which opens at 7pm BUT you can clearly see these opening times through the glass front door, along with a "Ring us" sign with their phone number. Didn't need to use my phone as the landlord answered door... More

This hotel was awful. When we arrived it was all locked up despite the fact the booking said we could come anyone after 5pm. We knocked on the door but no one answered. We went for a wonder for a bit and then came back and luckily someone heard us this time. The man who runs it was not very... More

We booked 3 rooms at the Red Lion,Sidbury and on arrival the place seemed deserted and locked up apart from a light upstairs. We rang the bell and knocked and no-one answered. The light went out and it was apparent we were going to be left stranded in rural Devon. It's only thanks to the cab driver who waited and... More

On arrival at the correct time (just after 17:00pm) we arrived at the Red Lion. It was all locked up, with the blackboard signs inside behind the glass doors, looking very deserted. I was unsure at first what to do, but I then noticed the doorbell. The landlord took a few minutes to come to the door, which left me... More

Our second enjoyable stay here. The King room was comfortable, food was good and the Otter ale was a pleasure to drink. What a pity that so few of the villagers patronise their only pub - they will regret it when the brewery finally closes it down.

We booked this B&B on the off chance and we were delighted with the place. The landlord was very accommodating and he couldn’t do enough for us. Great beer and the food was excellent. I would go again.

Stayed in Sidbury for 3 nights and as this is the only pub in the village we went in. We were the only ones in there and the landlord looked very down, beer was good. People of Sidbury use this pub or lose it, you have been warned.

We have been staying at the Red Lion now for around 10 years and we absolutely love it, good sized comfortable rooms with all you need, wonderful old pub lounge which does is always open when we get back from an evening out, Sidbury is a lovely location and just a short bus ride away from the town of Sidmouth...
