Whilst the food and service were both very good, we had to wait almost 25 mionutes for the food. The waiter explained the pub was very busy but we noticed a couple who sat down after us were actually served before us which made me see red!

The hotel/pub is not located near anything else for what I could see and it just off the main road near a roundabout. The room was great with a very comfortable king sized bed, the pub attached was very nice with plenty of outside seating. The pub offered a good range of food, all of which is available as room...

I haven't been to the red lion for nearly 5 years so I was pleasantly surprised to see how it's been refurbished. The interior decor is of a smart country pub. There is a large car park which has its own exit off of the roundabout. We were swiftly seated and the waitresses were very friendly and helpful. I ordered... More

Sunday evening around 5.30pm, we were told it was a 30 minute wait for food. It ended up being 70 minutes, with only one member of staff going to check after we asked after 40 minutes. The second part of the drinks order came out first, the waiter had to go and get the first set as it hadn't been... More

Nice looking hotel, beautiful room but the location, right at a major roundabout feeding on to the M1 made it impossible to have a good nights sleep because of the very noisy traffic. Dinner was dreadful. We waited an hour and a quarter between finishing our starter and receiving our main and it seemed like some of the dishes had... More

Massively improved since the recent major refurbishment. Really nice Restuarant, good food, friendly service and nice outside seating areas. We hadn't eaten there for years, but we eat there regularly now. Would definitely recommend.
