When booking I asked if the Xmas menu was running and was informed it was, GREAT I said because we are looking forward to it. On arrival we were informed that we should have pre booked for the Xmas menu. I was NOT told this on the phone! I can understand if it was a party of 10 or 20... More

With a party of 17 and three dogs our host gave us exclusive use of their den. Whilst missing the ambience of the main building, was ideal for us. Roast dinners all round. The beef and pork was excellent, but the chicken was a tiny portion and a bit dry. The staff were all so friendly and helpful and made... More

Consistent country glamour is how I would describe this one. I first came here in December 2011. Delicious kitchen smells and open fires with friendly service and some cracking musical evenings give this spot a real edge. Even the kids love it and ask to come back. This is my first time staying here and it's proved to be consistent... More

Picture the scene - kids just broken up for half term and like many parents we wanted to feed them something decent before the journey home. We phoned and spoke to the barman who confirmed if we arrived before 1430 then no problem for food. We arrived at 1420 - he basically cleared glasses in full view until 1428 and... More

This is a great place to stay and enjoy the Pub, the rooms are large, clean and very nice. The pub is great, a typical country pub, good welcome, the food in the restaurant was excellent, we had the shoulder of Lamb, first class, will definately stay again if anywhere near.

I was very much looking forward to lunch at the Red Lion having heard lots of good reports, and read many positive reviews. Having ordered drinks and chosen our table, we were told that there was no hot food available, other than out of the fryer. Well, I don't know whether it was a power cut or an appliance failure,...

We held a small wedding reception at The Red Lion for my daughter. It was superb. This is a boutique pub / hotel which lived up to expectation. The staff were tip top. Always ready to please, friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere was full of charm. A unique blend of sophistication and homeliness which was characterful in itself. Ceartain, the... More
