“GREAT family lunch, fab food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Can't comment on the hotel...we only used the restaurant...
we always struggle to find a suitable place for our extended family Christmas lunch...but The Red Lion in East Haddon was a perfect location, with delicious food in a lovely setting...and even though we were 15 people, they catered for our different needs, including a disabled parking space....think we may have been a bit noisy for other guests though! Sorry...
So pleased i didn't have to eat traditional Christmas dinner, not my favourite...plenty of GREAT choices...

Room Tip: downside was they don't have a separate room for groups, so other diners had to put up with our...

Last visited this establishment in 1988, wonderful then, has changed for even better.
Wonderful food, fabulous well informed pleasant staff (the management should be very proud), lovely venue but the ladies facility needs an upgrade ASAP (paying high prices but very poor washrooms). But we will return.

I recently visited England for a series of business meetings in Northampton. My business associates suggested I stay at the Red Lion Hotel in East Haddon. The hotel was everything I hoped it would be. It is located in the charming village of East Haddon with beautiful countryside and wonderful views. The hotel is staffed by extremely helpul and pleasant people and the restaurant at the hotel is superb.

The room I stayed in was clean and comfortable. WiFi was included.

I spent five nights at the Red Lion Hotel and I will definitely stay there on my next visit to the Midlands region.

My most recent visit to this delightful restaurant, was as a guest of friends to celebrate a special birthday. As always, the food was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented, and served with courtesy by very pleasant young people. A menue with choices to suit everyone.
This is not a cheap restaurant but well worth a visit. In the summer my husband and I took a visiting nephew and his wife from Australia for lunch and the bill was £120.00 for four. Not something we do everyday, but could certainly be tempted.
If you live in the Northampton area and want somewhere a little "special", this is it !

Room Tip: As we live in Northampton we have not used the accommodation.

Whilst visiting friends in Grange Park, Northampton, they suggested a 20 minute drive into the countryside to a lovely village hotel/restaurant which they had heard about. For a Monday evening it was quite busy, although possibly with a number of hotel diners, yet we were given a lovely large table for 4 which sat 6 and ordered drinks while we perused the menu. Our starters were very well presented especially the "sustainable" fish fingers and all of the main courses were a visual, aromatic and tasteful delight. Only 2 of us had room for a pudding but the waitress brought extra cutlery just in case. It was needed as our companions just had to try both! The head waitress/manager/owner was on hand to ask if everything was satisfactory and I took the opportunity to ask if she minded me posting on this site. The atmosphere is very friendly and relaxed with nothing too much trouble, I hope The Red Lion goes from strength to strength under the guidance of its young but experienced team.

Room Tip: Did not stay overnight

My partner and I went for a meal on a Saturday night, whilst the restaurant was very busy the staff were still very attentive, polite and smiley and the food came out quickly and with no problems. Presentation of the dishes was lovely and the food itself was superb and obviously made with the best ingredients. The starters, for me, were the most impressive with some interesting combinations (the risotto for example) and it is definitely nice to try something different. Prices for the meals are bang on and in-line with the quality of the food, service and the atmosphere of the place. Will be coming back!

Absolutely delicious supper. Lots of choice and recommendations you probably can't go wrong. Beautifully presented. Service was pretty good despite a full restaurant. They certainly didn't let down the cooking team.

Book a table in advance.

The Bedrooms are very nice but probably all fairly small. It's an old building and therefore has it's groans. The staircase is very steep and narrow, therefore not suitable for anyone who would find this a challenge, especially if there was an evacuation emergency.

Breakfast was delicious and with a good choice.

Room Tip: We had the Four Lions room. it was small but comfortable. The four poster bed is comfortable but t...
