This was very welcome after the walk down especially as it was a warm day when we visited Clovelly. We did have to wait a while to be served but it was very busy. Nice pint too. Only thing it could do with is more outdoor seating if it was possible.

We stayed in the sail loft, it was a good sized well appointed room with a comfortable superking bed and a large ensuite bathroom. A lovely location overlooking the beach. We hadn't pre-booked the restaurant and were informed by a rather unapologetic receptionist that it was full, but bar meals were being served until 8.30. The hotel was fully booked... More

After moving a couple of times as it was particularly drafty we settled down to a lovely lunch, menu offered a mix of traditional and a little different but overall menu well priced. We had a selection of hot and cold food, both were delivered in good time would recommend to others!

I had always wanted to stay at the Red Lion and found myself booking for two nights last week two weeks ago. When I made the booking I mentioned that we had a small dog. Travelling down the M5 really looking forward to our break, the phone rings, it's the staff at the Red Lion informing me that they could... More

Myself and my wife booked a night here. The location is absolutely perfect. We stayed in room 10 right in reception but was so quiet and was not disturbed at all. The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful. The only gripe I had was there was a shower head in the bath but it was not a stand... More

Had dinner x2 nights here August bank holiday. Very good quality and food prices, the lobster and chips is definitely worth the price! It was nice sitting outside on the dock watching the sun go in, my only down point is that by 9pm there is little to do and nothing going on & I wish there was a little... More

We stayed here for three nights for the start of our honeymoon. The Sail loft is beautiful. It looks as though not long been converted as so clean and faultless. The shower was exceptionally good! The bathroom roomy and modern in design but also attention to detail you would expect to find in a top class hotel. The room (no... More

This is a quaint Fishing Village owned entirely by the same Family, you walk down cobble stoned streets too narrow for vehicles very nostalgic when you arrive at the bottom you come across the Red Lion Hotel, very busy, but the food is fresh & delicious & the staff welcoming & helpful.
