We stayed here for two nights as we were attending a family wedding in Ulverston. We received a very warm welcome from all staff, who were extremely polite, helpful and hard-working. The rooms were spotless and the food was delicious! We had full English breakfast and my husband was particularly impressed with the bury black pudding! In the evening we... More

We were staying along the road, happily walking distance, from The Red Lion. We went in on the first day of our holiday for dinner and found it really nice. The staff were really welcoming and even though it seemed a bit deserted to begin with, it soon filled up with locals. The children were made very welcome also The... More

6 of us, the meat dishes were good, avoid the fish and chips and the reheated chilli (the order for this was forgotten about then 'ping' a few minutes later it arrived.) But, The Cumberland sausage and steak pie were really good, great portions and if we went back would be the thing to choose. Puddings were good too and... More

We booked onto a walking tour of the Lake District and started here. We arrived by cab, and after a third generation local cab driver had not even heard of it, I was worried. But should not have done. Really friendly service, great tasty food. Small room, but all you need,

The breakfast was amazing and was very delicious. We ate in the pub on another occasion during our stay and again this was very tasty -... More

I stayed here for 2 nights when I was in Ulverston on business. The room was very clean and very comfortable. The regulars at the pub downstairs were friendly which made for a pleasant and relaxing environment. The location was in a beautiful part of the countryside, not far from Lake Coniston - perfect to wander around and get yourself... More

Stayed at the Red Lion in July as part of a road trip of the Lake District. The hotel was spotlessly clean and the room very comfortable indeed. The breakfast was really tasty and prepared to your requirements, even fried bread if you want it! The bathroom was huge and also really clean. Very friendly couple with good knowledge of... More
