Stayed for two nights. Our rooms were excellent, clean and well maintained. Staff were very attentive, efficient and polite. We were made to feel welcome by Lisa & Lee, the proprietors. Food was spot on, very tasty and well presented. We look forward to a return visit.

This Pub sells burger which are beyond description. They are amazing. I was here on a working trip and was blown away by the sheer scale of these monsters. A must try if you are in this area. Well done to whoever created them !

The Red Lion has a number of good points going in its favour. We popped in for some lunch and the food was delicious, the bar was clean and the toilets smelled wonderful. However, I was a little surprised by the member of bar staff who served our food. She seemed to have something better to do and was quite... More
