Work evening meal after a busy sales meeting. Sun shining so decided to have a drink outside first before going in the restaurant. It was so nice we stayed there all night. Starters, main courses and drinks served till the sun went down. Great service, food and we all had a fantastic night. We always use this place for rooms... More

Have visited the Red Lion on several occasions and the food is always top notch. The staff are very attentive without being obtrusive. Would really recommend.

According to the info it was extensively refurbished 6 years ago and consequently the rooms are modern , nicely decorated and of a good size. Better than most hotels in fact and a reasonable price for the standard. The pub is still recognizably a pub,... More

Like Lam111, we used to come here regularly and knew many of the Staff. When Carl and Jane left to open Owens, a few years ago, we still came frequently. About last November, new management arrived and the meal we had was dire, but as I have said in previous reviews, I do not like to judge on one bad... More

Red Lion used to be a favourite for meals. Not been for a while so thought we would go for lunch. Very odd - the car park was almost empty. It used to always be full. We had the 2 course lunch. The mushroom soup was ok - hot and the warm bread was lovely. The main course was poor.... More
