We stayed here over night on 21st June 2014. 1st impressions were very good but we were not sure where to check in, this happened to be at the bar but there was nothing to tell you that. We were shown to room 6 and told where we needed to go for breakfast. About 2 minutes after we arrived in... More

We have just held our wedding ceremony here this weekend, Peter and Christine couldn't have been more helpful :) The function room looked amazing, they got in a special perry we requested for the drinks, pizzas came out right on time and were gorgeous. Everything was just as we'd planned it and Christine and Peter and all the staff there... More

We stayed here on Sunday night after a trip on the Ecclesbourne railway. We found the landlord and landlady very friendly and helpful as were the locals. Our room was spacious and comfortable and very clean. This is a very old inn so everything is very quaint and higgledy piggledy. Our breakfast was very good, freshly cooked to order. We... More

As said by someone before, outside the rooms is a favourite spot for the local young drinkers to hang out in the smoking shed and chat until gone 1am. When I complained in the bar at gone midnight I was told this was ok as they were drinking up so this was ok. The owners wife was not in any... More

We had a fab time at the red lion, perfectly situated for a walking and cycling weekend with plenty of choice of pubs for a drink before dining in the red lion. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, even storing our bikes overnight in a safe place. Rooms clean spacious and comfy bed although looking a little tired could do with... More

The Red Lion is right in the centre of Wirksworth opposite the market square. It dates from at least the 1700's and still has the arch where coaches entered. (It now leads to the car park.) Our room was spacious with a comfortable bed and the usual hotel facilities. The staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The pub downstairs was... More

This is a town centre pub which offers accommodation. Our room was on the top floor and was spacious and comfortable with real filter coffee available (which is rare and a good touch). A very comfortable king size bed with duvet (a bit too warm for me). Shower room was a rather cramped but functional and the room decoration was... More

Perfectly located for visiting Chatsworth, Haddon Hall and many other Derbyshire delights, this fine old establishment is an ideal resting place. Peter and his staff provide a nice easy-going atmosphere accompanied by friendly and efficient service. Spacious bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds & pillows. Ground coffee, cafetieres and tea-making facilities in each room are an added bonus. Do not expect... More

We stopped in for lunch on the way past and were surprised on all counts, but not in a good way! The food was overcooked, low quality and generally tasteless. The beer wasn't bad, but also not great, below average. On top of that the staff were unfriendly and not helpful. Goes without saying that we won't call again! I'm... More

Stayed for the night at the red lion. What a gorgeous building full of history. Lovely staff. Lovely atmosphere. Beautiful room. Comfortable bed. Nice touches like bottled water and posh coffee in the rooms. Staff made the effort to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast in the separate part of the building with a roaring log fire. Will definitely be going... More
