I stayed here for one night and would not hesitate to return. It's no Ritz but then again it's not Ritz prices either. Far from it! I cannot imagine a more friendly welcome and stay, and highly recommend the inclusive breakfast. I didn't have a chance to eat in the restaurant during the day/evening but the menu looked great, the prices were exceptionally cheap, and if breakfast was anything to go by, the quality and quantity of food was excellent.
Many people have suggested that you get what you pay for. In my opinion, you get a great deal more than you pay for here. Be prepared for somewhat dated decor and furnishings in your room, but note that this in no way makes the stay uncomfortable. Abundant tea and coffee making supplies, comfy beds, and everything that you might need for an uncomplicated and fantastic value stay.
If I'm back in the area I will definitely be revisiting, and with any luck will be able to fit in one of their famous mixed grills!
Excellent service and well worth a visit/stay.
Thanks to all at the Red Lion!

Stayed one night on a cycling holiday. Well located. Clean spacious rooms with large bathrooms, beds a little too soft for my liking but luckily was very tired so didn't keep me awake for too long!. Very friendly staff, and helpful in safe overnight storage of bikes.

I went with my family in April 2014 whilst narrow boating on the Llangollan Canal and can only praise everything about my experience. 2 of our party are vegetarians and they stated how pleasing it was to have perfect veggie food and not the usual boring menu for vegetarians. The service was 1st class and all the staff were very friendly even though it was mega busy. If I ever go back this way I shall return.

Great place. The landlord and everyone there is so friendly. Good pub grub, great atmosphere in the pub. Decent sized room. It's great for a stopover if you get a deal. Food at dinner is great value for money.

In agreement with others on this site my room although clean was seriously in need of decorating and very dingy. . Brown bedding didn't help either. But it was a case of 'getting what you pay for' I think they had better rooms on another landing. TV did not work either.
However on the plus side the staff were friendly and helpful and food service was quick and efficient.

Called in on the off chance of a table for tea at six o'clock. The place looks a tad run down but still had a bit of a "buzz" about it. Plenty of staff on duty. We were seated and studied the extensive menu and specials board. We ordered and the meals came proptly. As previously stated the portion sizes are generous to say the least. This suited us fine, especially our teenage son! We also had desserts and drinks. The bill was the cheapest we have had for a long time.

So long as you look past the tired decore, you'll not come away disappointed, or hungry!
