“Weekend break”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

This hotel is small and staff very friendly. Food is excellent. Ideal spot for exploring the Cotswolds. Bar area with few seats for people not eating in restaurant. Real ale served.
Customer service was very good. Outside there is a garden area with sheltered areas. Large secue car park.
Rooms are small some have bath and shower whilst others have showers only. Very clean and room are quiet. A bit pricey for b/b but I think most hotels in Cotswolds are. Plenty of choicei on the menu which is reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 and 2 are at the top of the hotel and are at the top of narrow stairs. Not sure if other ro...

We visited a second time for Sunday lunch, our first experience a year ago being good. A complete contrast this time. Although we were welcomed and seated quickly our food order was simply forgotten. The table opposite arrived after us and whilst they were settling their bill (and 40 minutes after our arrival) we were told "your order will be with you shortly". It fast became a joke as the owner and staff passed us many times with other customer's food but ours still stuck in the kitchen. Apparently our order had got mislaid but it still took another 20 minutes before we were eventually served an hour after ordering.

If this was my business I would have offered my customers a drink or proper apology but this didn't happen. We were now running late so paid the (full) bill and left. What a shame, our first visit left a lasting impression that ensured we went back. This weeks visit left us with just the opposite.

We stayed here for 3 nights. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly landlord who showed us our room, he said it was the smaller of the 2 rooms but gave us the option to move to the larger room the following day if we wished. As this pub was built in the17th century you have got to expect the rooms to be possibly on the small side, we found the small room to be adequate and very comfortable. The hosts were very hospitable and the food was brilliant. If you are looking for a quiet friendly pub with lots of character and excellent food this is the place to go.

Not so much a hotel as such, really a pub/restuarant with 2 rooms. If you can get past the fact that you can't check in between 3pm and 6pm because the place is closed and the tiny bathroom the room and bed are very comfortable, the service in the restaurant is very good and so is the food, in fact highly recommended. We were the only couple staying when we visited but they made us feel very welcome. If you don't want to pay £200 on a country house hotel this is very good quality for the price.

The Red Lion Inn is definitely the best of all worlds. Staying here for 4 nights on a cycling holiday we were given a warm welcome from the offset. The oak beamed room 1 (hooky hall, 1 of 2) was comfortable and well appointed. The pub itself splits itself between two worlds very successfully. The restaurant side has a great ambience and we had fantastic cuisine; I'm a vegetarian, and it provided enough choice for me to dine her on all 4 nights, which is unheard of at an inn. If you want a traditional pub, the public bar offers a traditional friendly welcome with pool table and television. It's a Donnington Brewery pub, and the standard real ale is a 3.6% B.B. You will find there is noise from the kitchens in your room whilst the kitchen is open, but this closes at 9 and the the owner runs a tight ship and ensures guests are never disturbed.

Having tried a few of the pubs in Moreton we were glad we stayed further out; it's excellently positioned to explore both the Rollright Stones (a staff member is a custodian so do ask) and Chastleton House.

I have visited the Red Lion with my girlfriend on two seperate occasions to have Sunday Lunch and both times were met by the rude landlord who said that they were full and not taking anymore orders. On the second visit he told us that it was his kitchen staff that were not willing to take anymore orders! Surely being the landlord he has the final stay.

I think it is very badly run and this is the opinion of many local people I've spoken to. Even if they were fully booked both times, he could have a least offered us a drink. I refuse to go there again.
