Warm and welcoming small local pub with a varied menu and choice of beers. Food was excellent. Well presented with good service. Didn't stay so can't comment on accommodation.

Red Lion has improved a lot recently. Cosy village pub, well located for Hadrians Wall. Good bar with open fire and 2 largely restaurant rooms. Small range of beers but excellent condition. Food exceptional. Nice staff. Accommodation.

Called in at lunchtime, menu was appealing and to a high, homemade impressive standard. Chose the roast baguette and was not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere with the fires on, nice lounge area in the front which looked comfortable. I will return :-)

We dropped in for lunch after visiting the church. We both had the hot meat sandwich which is served with chips and a jug of gravy. My lamb and my husbands beef were both delicious and tender. An excellent pot of tea too :-) We will definitely be back to try out the dinner menu :-)

The food was excellentand imaginatively presented -- for example the sticky toffee pudding came with a tiny milk bottle full of sauce. There is a revolving menu and the food we had was all well prepared. The service was very good and the atmosphere pleasant.

Always a warm welcome. A good choice of real ales. When we are looking for a light lunch we always opt for the Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon.

Had one meal that was excellent and two nights later a mediocre effort - consistency is the essential quality that most people seek

We had delicious main courses at the Red Lion and couldn't resist a pudding. It was all beautifully presented. Would definitely return if in the area.
