we arrived for our meal about 4pm the restaurant opened at 5pm so we had a drink in the really pretty beer garden, bit of a walk from the bar! Returned to the restaurant 10 minutes early to be told by the poor waitress that Chef said it would be 5.30pm when service started. Not much of an issue but... More

It was a gorgeously sunny day and we sat in the very pleasant garden (strategically placed hedges and shrubs sheild you from the carpark). Food was fantastic - exactly what you would want from a country pub; plentiful, tasty, home cooked. Pies had perfect crusty pastry, and big chunks of steak, chips were big and crispy and there was lashings... More

Where to start? We stayed a couple of nights and ate in the restaurant both times. The restaurant was great – it's a warm, old-fashioned pub which seems to get busiest as locals pop in either for something to drink or eat on the way home from work. Be warned, the portions are huge, although on the second night my... More

We stayed at the Red Lion over Valentines weekend for an impromptu break. We couldn't have asked for more. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Comfy bed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent with a good choice of breakfast items. The kitchen even catered for a Bacon sandwich as I did not want the full cooked breakfast. The pub... More

We called for lunch on a day out sight seeing. Gorgeous tap room and a very friendly greeting. I had a roast beef and gravy sandwich and my friend had pulled pork. They were both absolutely delicious! The meat was very tasty and tender. We shared chips too which were also yummy.I have never had a better sandwich and doubt... More

Had a great night with friends in the Red Lion this week. This is a very cosy and welcoming village pub. Log fires and candles add to the cosy atmosphere - great on a freezing winter night. The food was delicious and well presented and the service from the young and very friendly staff was excellent. We didn't expect to... More

I stayed for two nights whilst working nearby. It is not a buisness hotel, therefore dont expect a desk or room to work. There was no full length mirror Bed very low... thin walls The above is the only negatives i had for this stay and thats why it only had 4 stars (In reality another 4.5 review!)....Actually reread my...

We stayed at the Red Lion for one night as we were spending time with family in Alnmouth over Xmas. We have been here a couple of times before for food and beers and enjoyed the cosiness! The room we had (room 6 I think) was situated on the first floor at the back of the pub, external stairs to... More

Just a quick entry in relation to highlighting poor customer service.About a week before the end of November I booked a room at the Red Lion for New Years Eve. I did so knowing full well there was a non refund policy for cancellation. That said within a day or two I let the pub know I would not be... More
