What's not to like - lovely modern fitted room, comfy and large bed, good pub food - particularly the pizzas, very dog friendly, and with very friendly and helpful staff. Beer was good and wine well priced. Breakfast was great too. Location is ideal - centre of a very pretty village/small town. Pub noise from downstairs was just background in... More

Clean and pleasant room. It would have been useful information to know accommodation booked was in an annex, a short walk from the Red Lion. Staff very friendly. Large ensuite with ample supply of towels. A nice selection of biscuits on tray with tea and coffee. Spectacular view over the North Devon countryside.

family joined us mid week whilst staying in the area, we had a really nice lunch at The Red Lion, service good with friendly staff, just a bit disappointed with outside seating area, as it was a nice day we wanted to be outside...but despite that we did enjoy our meal & would return.

We stayed at the Red Lion from Friday - Sunday to attend a friend's wedding on the Saturday and were extremely disappointed, particularly having enjoyed going to the restaurant last time we visited. We understand that this is a pub and that it has loud music, however, it is absolutely outrageous to charge £90 for a room directly above the... More

We are sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy your stay at the Red Lion. We are a bar/restaurant situated at the centre of a thriving community, and on occasion, customers enjoy the lively ambience associated with a busy bar, particularly at the weekends. It was unusual that there was a party on Friday evening, and live... More

We checked in quite late on the Saturday night, already there were five other members of the family checked in. we had a nice drink in the bar which... More

Well what can I say, I lived in this pub over 30 years ago and worked the bar. It certainly has changed for the better. We had room 1 and it was a king four-poster bed. Room was clean with clean towells and a lovely shower. We had tea and it was a fish and chip supper,it was refreshing to... More

Booked a twin room at the Globe (sister hotel) and on arrival got upgraded to a room at the Red Lion. Unfortunately it was a double bed and not a twin but that wasn't a major problem. The bathroom was epic - a huge shower and plenty of space. The hotel guests had a separate entrance to their rooms so... More

I stayed two nights over a weekend. The room was first rate and the staff both friendly and helpful. They retrieved and returned a lost telephone charger. They let me have an early breakfast. Lovely weather too!
