We had another yummy Sunday lunch with some friends. We love eating in the bar area as its more atmospheric and you get to meet and see all the dogs who are all made very welcome by the staff. You must book in advance as its so popular and you'd be hard pressed to get a table at the weekend.

We stayed here for three nights while walking the Thames Path (taxis back and forth a lot) and it was absolutely perfect. It's very much a pub first and a hotel second, but that doesn't mean it's not a first-class place to stay as well. The rooms are set at the back off the beer garden, with small window that... More

Chilled out here with my mate Nell for two nights so that our mothers could drag us around Gatcombe Horse Trials. Pub is a convenient 20 minutes drive away. Pub was welcoming, particularly the staffie dog owning manageress who saved her car parking space for us. They didn't see two of us dogs in a room as a problem. A... More

My brother booked two double rooms here as Cricklade was halfway on a Thames walk we had planned so my expectation was simply a comfortable bed - what a surprise we got! Very warm and welcoming staff, the rooms were excellent, we had both dinner and bed and breakfast and both were superb. A bonus was a range of excellent... More

Lovely clean and very well stocked room, load of toiletries, lots of different coffees and teas. Warm welcome. good food, excellent atmosphere. The small bar was packed with Dogs and their owners, all very relaxed. The pud sold an amazing array of whiskies and gins from around the world, lots of local ales and even a micro brewery on site.... More

Four of us stayed here on our first night of walking the Thames Path. What a lovely surprise to have booked such a special place. We all had a gin and tonic during cocktail hour with a good choice of gins. Our room was comfortable looking over the court yard and a welcome soak in the bath after a long... More

My husband surprised our two friends and myself with a visit to The Red Lion for lunch on Wed 20 July 2016 on the way to our nearby destination. According to my husband and my friend's husband who both had the ham and eggs with triple fried potato wedges, everything on the plate was delicious. My friend who has a... More

I visited this pub with a friend for an early evening meal. This is a good English country pub with a beer garden and on site brewery. The staff were welcoming and apologetic that no food order could be taken until 6.30pm but when we did order the food it was fairly speedy in being served and tasted very good.... More

We went here for my birthday. The atmosphere and the building was very nice. The menu was quite limited and pricey and there was only 1 vegetarian option that I could have. It was ok but I wouldn't choose it again. The pudding was lovely though I had poached pear. You only got half a pear but all the extras... More

Very clean and spacious room overlooking the garden area. Breakfast very good and location very central and quiet. I was meeting friends who had flown over from New Zealand to explore the area. Great walks and scenery. A fantastic trip.
