The Red Lion is a very old coaching inn which cowers at the back of a vast station car park over which a Holiday Inn Express hotel stands sentinel. It has been bullied into submission by modernity, and now caters for the more widely-built customer in terms of characterless dining and drinking areas. Conversely the bedrooms are a triumph of design over space. Room 18 is mainly occupied by a very comfortable double bed, there is a miniscule shower room, but two people would fall out if they had to spend a night here, both out of the bed and with each other. As a bedroom, what it lacks in space it compensates with a iPod dock, a good size TV, and evidence of the clever people who constructed timber-frame buildings 300 years ago. One does have a choice - The Red Lion charges £79 for B&B, and the bacon and egg for breakfast was excellent. The Holiday Inn next door charges £119 and the breakfasts are unexciting. One night in either place would be enough.
