Just a one-night stop for us; picked and booked through one of the many hotel websites. Brewood is a bit of a strange place; it is a crossroads of probably Georgian buildings with some modern development around. You would expect it to be on a traditional coaching route, but it is a mile or so away from the nearest main...

Stayed in a superior room on the top floor; evidently an old building (Grade II I believe) tastefully modernised and furnished. Bathroom evidently newish with everything working and very clean. Room (ceiling opened up to the eaves) - and comfortable bed - both well-proportioned. Dinner very good as was breakfast. Service efficient and friendly throughout despite Saturday night clearly being...

Popped in for drinks on Saturday 18th March. No where to sit in bar area so went into the side room. Unfortunately we were asked to go back to bar as tables reserved for eating only. Stood at bar but was then in the way of glass collection ! Shame the staff are only interested in customers wanting to eat...

I'm a regular traveller across the M5 & M6 and found this hotel by chance. The rooms are excellent, and make you feel like you're having a 5 star experience. The food is in a class all of its own....first class gastro pub. The service is brilliant. I didn't have a reservation, but they managed to find me a seat...

We decided to stay overnight as we had booked in for a meal to celebrate valentines early. Check in was easy, upon seeing the room, it looked clean and modern with a double bed, en-siute tea, coffee facilities . What you would expect for £85. The meal and service were top rate, upon retiring to our room we realised space...

Went for dinner today at the Lion hotel. Excellent food and the service was very good. We had the lamb shank and the burgers. My husband had the bread and butter pudding which was delicious. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Staffordshire, Brewood is lovely.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Lion Hotel, built in the 18th century, was originally two establishments, namely The Giffard Arms and The Red Lion. They continued to have two different proprietors until 1850, when The Giffard Arms and The Red Lion was under a single proprietor and was presumably combined into one establishment. The name seems to have been shortened to The Lion by 1867.It was in The Red Lion that the Hon. John Byng was "put into a white-washed room, and got a miserable, neither hot - nor cold dinner" in 1792.The Giffard Arms was used as a magistrates court and the Magistrates and prisoners would enter by the now blocked off door on the far right of the building.In 1870 and for many years there were many different licensees for The Lion, including E. Bagnall and A. Bourne, and in 1937 the licensee was a Mrs Anne Ball. The combined premises subsequently had a spell as a "posh" Three Star Hotel (AA & RAC).A magnificent staircase was removed from the interior of The Giffard Arms in 1970.At present, The Lion Hotel is a Grade 11 listed building. ... more   less
