Saturday Lunch

Came across the Red Lion by chance on our way to the peaks. Not sure why but the bar and bistro were very quiet for a Saturday Lunch time, but the service was quick and friendly - maybe because it was quiet.

The Red Lion was apparently originally a 17th Century Inn but the restoration has been quite substantial. Lots of fake beams inside but the overall effect is pretty good. The food is excellent, real

I've been here twice for afternoon tea. The service is amazing, staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you. The bistro is beautifully decorated and is very welcoming. The afternoon tea is lovely, one of the best I've had. Definitely worth a visit

We were not disappointed - food was just fabulous - quality and presentation... More

We ate here 2 nights whilst staying at the hotel. The first night was very quiet and apart from being regularly asked if all was ok, the service was good and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 choices each from the fixed price menu. However, the second evening the service was almost a disaster. It was busy in the room but... More
