    Welcoming staff, nice rooms and reasonable food. All the staff were really nice and helpful. Our room seemed recently refurbished and was comfortable and clean. Its outlook over a kitchen extractor fan might have been a problem if we needed the window open in summer but it was too cold for that. We ate in the restaurant. Good choice with... More

    If you are looking for 5 star luxury, then you are in the wrong place, however if you want a good value country pub with enthusiastic staff serving great food, then this is the place for you. In a lovely setting on the edge of the village that would have been interesting to explore had it not rained constantly for... More

    Stayed at the Red Lion for my brothers wedding in the area. On initial impression pulling up to the place my thoughts were low, believing it to be "another pub with terrible rooms" etc etc, but once being in the place I was really impressed by the staff, and how nice the place actually was! Don't judge a book by... More

    I stayed here with my wife as we were in the area for a wedding. We wanted to access the room early so we could get changed and head off to the wedding and the hotel easily accommodated this request. We had a two hour journey and didn't want to travel in our wedding finery. The room was spacious, light... More

    Stayed here for three nights at the weekend. Manager was very welcoming especially after a nightmare 8 hour journey. Our room was a very large family room for the two of us with large en suite bathroom with bath and shower. Room tastefully decorated and very comfortable bed. Breakfast was very acceptable, although some variety would have been welcome, but... More

    Another visit here with our family - 9 of us on Easter Saturday. So bound to be busy, but they didn't let us down and we enjoyed reasonable standard pub food and good service. Not gastro pub standard, but OK and fine for our purposes.
