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!

It was a refreshing change to visit a pub with some ambiance. Locals drinking at the bar, live music in an off room, and a restaurant serving food to be very proud of. Well done to all at the Red Lion in Chulmleigh.

We went for a drive and found Chumleigh, stopped in here for a few beverages. Really lovely pub, nice atmosphere friendly staff and good selection of drinks. We ended up getting a pizza because we were hungry and it was the greatest pizza we'd ever had in our lives. And we've eaten a lot of pizza, in a lot of... More

My room was absolutely fantastic, very big, great bed, brand new tv, great shower and modern bathroom.. no expenses spared! Very stylish! I also left my Ipad here, because I am very clumsy. They sent it back to me at no extra cost.... this wasn't something they needed to do, but went out of their way regardless!

We can only comment on the pub and restaurant experience which was a pleasant experience. The pub is cosy and friendly and food served is good and the pizzas are excellent. Husband says there is a good selection of beers. Great for families and couples and the restaurant is large and modern rustic. Chulmleigh is very lucky to have a... More

So happy to find somewhere that could accommodate us and our 2 dogs for an overnight stay as a birthday surprise for my partner! Helped in every way possible...dog water bowl and biscuits in our room too! Comfortable bed, large room, spacious bathroom. Could only give 4 stars due to the following things. The curtains didn't cover the whole window...granted... More

I am very sorry to hear about the problems with your meal. I can only apologise. On the night in question due to staff sickness we only had one new young Chef on duty who was offering a basic menu. We did have other fish available so I am not sure why the waitress told you that we only had... More
