If you do want to stay in a traditional English pub with bags of character you will struggle to better the Red Lion. The room was delightfully “Olde Inne” with Oak Beams and uneven walls, more importantly clean and tidy with plenty of hot water not matter what time of day. The breakfast!!! Well the Full Lakeland was large enough to see you up Scafell Pike and back TWICE. The options however were equally impressive, freshly cooked and delicious as is all the Bar Food. There is little else to say without getting poetic, Paul and Lynne are the best of hosts and all of the guys working there (Emma, Sara and Louise) did their upmost to make our stay a good one. I would highly recommend the Red Lion to anyone, just don’t mention Cows to Paul!!
