It's the second time we have visited this hotel, and like the first time it didn't disappoint as far as accommodation and food were concerned. Considering it's a Greene King establishment their IPA wasn't available the first night and then flat and lifeless the next, which I refused. Management, please note.

I stay here whenever I'm in Portsmouth. It's convenient for work & I like the hotel. If you arrive on Sunday (as many of us do) bear in mind the restaurant closes early, so plan accordingly. Very reasonable rates, and easily accessible from main routes (A/M3). The staff are also particularly nice.

Arranged a wake for my wife. The staff could not have been more helpful. We booked the stables bar and function room, the price we paid included bar staff. The buffet was delicious, the room was laid out beautifully, nothing was too much trouble.

I run a social group, and 40 of us went to the stable bar here for our Christmas party in December. The food was lovely and piping hot, although the few that ordered the vegetarian option were not so impressed. The staff were efficient and friendly and did a great job of getting the right meals to the right people.... More

Have just had a lovely evening at Red Lion. Superb atmosphere followed by lovely meal. Friend left her umbrella and bag on table in bar. Staff noticed and brought it too us. We were celebrating my recovery from breast cancer and all the bar staff and waiting staff could not have been nicer. Fantastic value as well.

We stayed here and did the booking via telephone as did not have access to computer. I must have misunderstand the booking receptionist as I understood room only as £55 but when we arrived the invoice stated that the first night was one price and the second night different so total was £155. I did query this but apparently they... More
