We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay in this lovely old coaching inn. The location was very good for trips to the coast Holy Island and Bamburgh, also for the National Park and Scottish Border Towns. After eating there on the first night we decided to eat there every night of our stay and thoroughly enjoyed... More

We stayed 4 nights at the traditional pub. The room (#2) was very clean, bed was comfortable. Shower/toilet was a little cramped, but adequate for our purpose. Room was on the 2nd floor with a door to the outside, so access was easy without going through the bar. The food was marvelous, cooked to order by Iain, the proprietor, using... More

We visited the Red Lion twice recently when staying at a nearby cottage. The Red Lion is an old, traditional Inn with plenty of locals coming for an evening drink. The food is delicious, a little more pricey than average pub grub but that is more than reflected in the quality. They use local produce and local businesses where this... More

We stayed nearby in Akeld and the Red Lion was the local pub. On Monday night we popped in and got tipsy on the local guest ale and had fun playing Uno (loudly) and then Spoof (we are all in our late 50s to early 60s). Ordered some food, which was lovely and comes recommended. [tip to the owner. With... More

We stayed for 2 nights B&B which was not long enough. Owner Iain is a fantastic chef. Food menu is not the usual pub grub it is freshly prepared all from local produce delicious, eggs benedict for breakfast. Bedrooms and bathroom are fresh and extremely well kept. I would highly recommend The Red Lion. My visiting American son in law... More

Two of us stayed here for one night with out dog. Room was very clean, with tea and coffee making equipment, en-suite shower. Food was good quality, home made and staff and landlord very friendly. Landlord particularly helpful in making us sandwiches and a flask of tea to take with us when we left. Would recommend.

Enjoyed the meal - Steak Pie and Chips at The Red Lion Milfield on friday evening. The pub was packed, but they still managed to have a table for us and we were not disappointed. Maybe need additional staff at busy times but we were happy. Recommend.

I had 2 fishing friends who were staying here and they raved about both the accommodation and food so much that we had to join them for dinner one evening. They were not lying - Fabulous food (particularly fish) - One of the best meals I have had in a so-called Gastro Pub. This place isn't as pretentious as to... More
