We were on our way home from Scarborough to Essex & wanted an evening meal. It was pouring with rain & difficult to see. We suddenly saw the car park entrance to the Red Lion & pulled in. The greeting was warm & friendly, as was the fire, [it is May after all] We ordered the steak pie & it... More

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the red lion public house for my daughters wedding on Saturday 17th May 2014. Our room was spotless and we were even allowed to check in earlier due to time of wedding. The breakfast even though served early was lovely with good quality produce. I would deffinately recommend here for an overnight stay

Lee and Jo owners of the pub couldn't do enough for us and after a misunderstanding over breakfast times treated us to a free meal and drinks and a partial refund for our inconvenience... More

Rooms situated above a pub bar. Adequate for purpose. bathroom area very small and toilet that would not work properly, maserator system unasble to cope with waste. Really put off as we sat in the room waiting to be served breakfast when we could see the 'Chef' dishing up food onto our plates with his bare hands, hygene issues here.

Easy to find and decent parking. Room was fairly clean, and an effort had clearly been made with the styling and finishing touches of the room, but rough/unfinished around the edges. My room faced onto the main street and the large window was single glazed, that coupled with my impending job interview did not make for a restful nights sleep,... More

A tired old Pub with rooms. Kicked out of the front bar and told to sit in the back bar which was utterly dreadful. Had a beer and left. Ate in town at a great *** hotel. Didn't eat in the pub for the smell of oil and the chips on the floor. Tables needed a clean. Banging door kept... More

We (a group of 4 cyclists) spent a night at the red lion last week during our coast to coast cycle ride. I thought it rather odd when booking that we had to to pay a massive 50% deposit, but was still disappointed by the greeting we got upon our arrival. We had just cycled some 60 odd miles and... More
