Wanted to find somewhere for a little peace and quiet, this did the trick perfectly. Great pub, great rooms and great hosts, what more can you ask for 10/10. Location: 10 minutes out of Glastonbury by car on the festival road

We were given a warm welcome to this friendly character pub by the landlord and landlady. The rooms were clean, attractive and comfortable with superb shower. Lovely English breakfast... We recommend the sausages! We would not hesitate to stay there again or recommend it to other people. Its very convenient for Glastonbury and Wells

Great country pub, the landlord is a real character and he and the landlady are very friendly to dogs and customers alike... amiably chatty and can't do enough to help make your visit super enjoyable. We only went in for a quick drink one evening (the farmhouse cider is well worth a try) and the welcome was so warm that... More

Called into the Red Lion on our first day staying in Glastonbury, most importantly for us was that our two dogs were able to come in. Ordered drinks and asked for a menu, was told that the menu was limited because the landlord was new and they'd just been discussing with the chef how they were going to increase it.... More

Hi there, It was a pleasure to host you and your two collies! Apologies for the tornado fries, perhaps this was miscommunication from the bar to the kitchen - if you're in the area again and fancy popping in, we'll make sure you get a chance to try them! Kind regards, Jon and Claire More

Had Sunday lunch here with friends whilst holidaying in the area, we had the carvery, very good selection of meats with generous portions, but the potatoes and vegetables leave a lot to be desired, the reason we chose this pub was that we had a dog with us and very few places allow dogs inside. The landlord was very courteous... More

Hi there, We're glad you enjoyed the selection of meats, as we source locally which hopefully is reflected in the quality of our joints. We're sorry you didn't enjoy the sides as much - we offer traditional roast potatoes, crispy on the outside/fluffy in the middle, homemade Yorkshire puddings, crispy roasted parsnips in olive oil and a little brown sugar,...

Booked a table to round off our holiday to the UK and having decided after looking at menu online, that there was enough there to suit my vegan teenage son! Arrived to find the online menu was not 'on' and there were choices of about 5 starters and 5 mains. Nothing vegetarian, let alone vegan! Can I add I'm a... More

Hi there, We're really sorry for this miscommunication and can only apologise for our inability to cater for your vegan son. We're slightly confused about the lack of vegetables as we always have some seasonal veg, but this is by the by as the important thing is you were disappointed. You said we didn't have a veggie option, we did... More

We were staying at Applebarn Cottage in lovely West Pennard and knew the Red Lion was waiting at the end of a gorgeous country lane.

I just stayed 6 nights in the Red Lion. There was a group of 5 of us working at the showground. Pub is a great location, we loved our stay, rooms were all comfortable & clean, food was always good and staff looked after us really well! Would definitely come back again & would recommend!

The Red Lion was recommended to us as the local pub close to where we were staying. It is open 7 days a week with plenty of space for car parking. We were able to enjoy a lovely meal, 6 adults, baby and our dog. Very friendly, helpful staff.
