Hello. This is a basket of treats, snacks etc in the room which you are trusted to pay for - putting the money in an 'honesty box'. From memory the Red Lion offers a mix of crisps, sweets etc. Along with small bottles of wine. Enjoy your stay. It's a lovely venue. Great spot for exploring further along the north Norfolk coast.
