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

called in with some friends for a lunch in the bar area. Everything was very clean and tidy. Pleasant staff. Our food ordered came in reasonable time and the main courses were excellent. We chose our desserts, only to find after the order had been taken that the lemon tart was not available as it had been finished yesterday and... More

Pleasantly surprised and clearly a place that has potential and the work that has been done in transforming what was clearly a tired place in the past. Our room was spacious and well decorated but needed some finishing touches - Lots of empty walls could do with some pictures. Pub, restaurant, service and welcome were all great and excellent value... More
