Keep coming back to this lovely hotel. This time we brought our daughter and son-in-law as they were visiting us from Germany and we knew they would enjoy the experience of a lovely English Hotel. They were not disappointed. We had a beautiful meal in the evening, four main courses and two bottles of wine at a cost of £62.23....can't... More

How I wish I had believed the bad reviews for this establishment. As I said on leaving - not that anyone in charge was remotely interested - I will never return and I would advise all of you to give this place with its awful food, poor service and inflated prices a very wide berth. Against my better judgement ,... More

Stayed here in the lion suite with my girlfriend after a day of bad news for a little getaway and it was perfect, spacious and clean and reasonably priced. Breakfast was a treat. Also it's location is ideal right on the A57 and less than 2 mins from the M1.

Dinner for 4 at around 1800 on a weekday night. 2 children's meals, one chilli and one gammon and chips. Extremely nice food and excellent service from Liam and Callum. Very sensitive to our children - thank you, it really makes a difference when waiting staff are so kind.

We have been regular visitors to this pub for years but after our recent experience we will not be returning in a hurry. We went for Sunday lunch. We were seated quickly and our drinks order taken. Sadly things went from downhill from this point. It took 15 minutes for the waitress to take our order and we reminded her... More

Went here last week with the family. Food was good. Would recommend the belly pork. My wife ordered the bakewell tart and let's just say it's a good job she's on a diet cos there isn't much there! The best thing about the place was the waiter called Callum. He didn't stop rushing around for one second , poor lad,... More

We have just had a lovely overnight stay at the Red Lion. We paid £60 for a superior room with breakfast. The Lion Suit was beautifully clean, had some lovely antique furniture and the bed was so comfy . Had a great night sleep. Food in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast was great value and the service was perfect.... More

Friday's warm welcome ,cheerful service and tasty food was just what we have come to expect .Dinning area so designed that parties of all ages can be accommodated comfortably.Sure we will be calling in regularly over the summer !

I have recently tried 3 times to contact the Red Lion for a booking. An automated response on each occasion has offered three choices, and on the last occasion I tried each of these to no avail, ending with "I am sorry, but all our operators are currently busy. Please leave your number, and we will get back to you"..... More

Lovely big, clean room. Evening meal excellent. Great choice on menu, not just standard fare. Again fantastic breakfast. Staff really genuinely helpful. Location perfect just off M1.
