Stayed here for a night while attending a concert in Delamere Forest, Lovely old pub with nice food and a good atmosphere. Rooms are very clean but a little tired. Hosts were great and the locals friendly. Would return again without hesitation.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the food was good and extremely reasonable. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. Good choice of real ale. The car park was a bonus and we would have no hesitation in booking again.

Went into the Red Lion after a meal while we waited for transport home. Nice atmosphere in the lounge area with what was like a small snug room just off it. There was live football on the tv but only a few people watching so the pub was quite. The young barmaid was very friendly and served us stright away.... More

Booked for a one night stay for a visit to Chester Zoo in the morning. Nice clean friendly pub with accommodation. No food served here but plenty places nearby. Car park at rear and wifi available too. Rooms nice and clean good shower. Plenty tea/coffee and milk in room. Great shower too. Would highly recommend for a short stay.
