Having spend 3 nights at The Red Lion Inn I feel that it is important for us to share our experiences for anyone who is thinking about staying here. On our first evening we decided to dine in the restaurant as the menu looked very appetizing. I ordered the steak and requested it to be cooked 'medium'. When it was... More

I only stayed one night, but I was very impressed with all the facilities. The rooms were modern and clean and the bar / restaurant area very nicely laid out. The staff were smashing too and I'm coming back for sure.

This was our second stay at this lovely Bed & Breakfast. There is a large car park and convenient location close to the M1. The room was great and evening meal first class, compliments to the Chef on the "specials", they were delicious. The waitress Jess was very friendly and helpful. Wonderful comfy bed and nice breakfast in the morning.... More

Me and my fiance visited for a meal. The food was lovely, service on the other hand was shocking. Nobody knew what each other was doing. And they didnt have certain meals available. We werent told how to order either, wether at the bar or table service.

Stayed here over night as attending a party in the function room. Booked superior room for £65 bed and breakfast - thought this was very good value. Room was large and well decorated only strange thing was tea and coffee facilities were in bottom of wardrobe - would have been better to have had on tray out in room somewhere.... More
