Stayed for a couple of nights, 2 rooms, as a birthday surprise for an elderly friend. Rooms were very clean and comfortable and the food was excellent. All the staff were very friendly and we will definitely be back again. Highly recommended if you are in the Cotswolds area - one of the best.

We were travelling South to a Wedding and drove past this Inn, feeling hungry and tired we stopped, doubled back and parked up. The settings was wonderful and the greetings we received was first class. We sat down and could tell immediately it was a well run and busy place. Drinks arrived soon after the food was on our tables.... More

The Red Lion makes no claims to being a 'Gastro Pub', good, I anticipate overpriced and usually pretentious food at such places, but the quality of the meals, the choice and the prices here were exceptional. We started with a dish of Olives and bread to dip into Olive Oil ( no charge was maid for the latter ). Main... More

We really love this pub- friendly staff, good food at a reasonable price and small well formed bedrooms and even Molton Brown toiletries in the bathroom! What's not to like?A tad noisy road outside but that's not their fault!

Thank you for taking the time to review your second stay with us (even if you do only come back to have your favourite yoghurt!!).

Just got back from a weekend spent at the Red Lion. Honestly can't find a single thing to moan about, lovely room that was clean and well equipped, excellent food at breakfast, lunch and dinner and all the staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Have no hesitation in recommending.
