Excellent location for visiting the city of Lincoln and surrounding area, wood hall spa etc. the pub is very cosy with lots of low beams and plenty of character, bar food is also pretty good and range of ales ok, rooms are in separate stone complex but are very modern and comfortable

Me and my husband were part of a table of 7 on a Thursday night (Pie night!) and had a lovely meal! Lots of choice, specials board available as well as the... More

Booked my family to stay in the lodges and a meal in the restaurant. The food was very disappointing as the chips were barely cooked and the mash potatoes were cold. The service was also disappointing however on a positive note, the accommodation was excellent and breakfast was good.

This is a lovely bar/restaurant with chalets on the grounds. Set in beautiful quiet village and close to Lincoln for great shopping and really nice scenery. The Red Lion provide the best food we have eating in de area an provide a very good friendly, efficient service. Well worth visiting. We look forward to returning again soon.

We had a one night stay at The Red Lion in August. The room was clean and comfortable and a very good size,and very well equipped. I have no problem in recommending The Red Lion to any one needing a room in this area, it is well worth a visit.

The food in the Inn was Fantastic... More
