A lovely place to stay. The Red Lion is clean, tidy and warm. The breakfast was hot and hearty as well as offering cereal, yoghurts and juice, tea and coffee was free flowing. Our room was a decent size, lovely comfy bed and hot powerful shower as well as being quiet. The biggest asset to this Inn were the staff.... More
