The Red Lion Hotel is situated in the tiny hamlet of Bredwardine, which nestles on the banks of the River Wye just twelve miles from Hereford, and 8 miles from Hay-on-Wye.Built of red brick, its origins lie in the seventeenth century when it was used as a coaching inn, also the lounge bears the name The Courtroom. This is where the circuit judge of the day used to sit in judgement.Our aim at the hotel has been to provide you with a peaceful haven in the tranquil heart of England away from the hustle and bustle of work and every day life. Whilst every effort has been made to combine this warm, congenial atmosphere with all the comforts and facilities of a modem day hotel, you will find that the Red Lion retains much of its old world charm including oak beams, and beautiful antiques with blazing log fires through the winter months.The reputation of our dining-room relies on well prepared home-cooked food, using as much fresh produce as possible and cooked to order by our highly regarded chef. You can choose from a varied range of meals off our menus, whether its at breakfast, lunch time or in the evening and remember to look out for our "Specials" board.Whilst situated in the heart of one of the most beautiful areas in the country there are a whole host of things to do and enjoy.These include Herefords Cathedral and the famous Mappa Mundi exhibition to the local Small Breeds & Owl Centre and of course a visit to Herefordshire would not be complete without a trip to Bulmers Cider Museum and for the more active amongst us canoeing down the magnificent river Wye.What ever the reason for your visit we are here to help you enjoy your stay and our beautiful county.

My wife and I dropped in for an unplanned Sunday lunch whilst driving by.... What a great surprise to have a brilliant home cooked meal and some delicious real ales. This truly was a rarity to find a great homemade main meal and desert at a really reasonable price. We're back in

4 of us stayed for a fishing weekend and where the fish may have been elusive the hospitality at the Red Lion certainly wasn’t. Nice comfy beds with good facilities in the bedrooms made for a good rest. The menu is a exactly what you want from a Country inn, pub classics cooked

Glad you had an enjoyable stay. You’ll have to come back when it’s a little cooler and the fish are biting. We currently have an offer on the accommodation page of our website for October
