Very friendly staff and nice inside the pub/restaurant. Prices of meals were more attractive not so long ago. Some meals very good but also some average to good. Maybe went on a bad day as at one time the Red Lion rated far higher.

You know when you walk in a place and you tumble weed cascading around the bar area, well have to say, SPOOKY and it wasn't even Halloween, this place looked as though time had stopped, and the staff just didn't want you there, Having passed this place at various times and it always looked very inviting, well went there, and...

Stayed here last year and wanted to visit the area again so stayed again for 4 nights. In fact stayed in the same room (16). Once again really enjoyed staying here, particular thanks to assistance manager Sarah. Would recommend this place for a reasonably priced and located break for Oxford and the Cotswolds. However the pub is closing for a...

Stayed here overnight, had an evening meal in the restaurant, great service, very good very hot food, no pressure to eat and vacate the table and reasonably priced. Access to the room is via a narrow spiral staircase so would not be ideal for disabled or elderly clients, the room was OK, but very tired looking and the lovely four...

Stayed here 2/3 years ago and it still retains the friendly (and slightly quirky) atmosphere of an Old English Inn. A rabbit warren of a place but, nevertheless, pleasant. Reserved a large room with King-sized bed - very comfortable and the room was fine. Also had a large leather settee which was relaxing. Everything clean and tidy. Wardrobe a bit...

Me and my partner visited for Sunday lunch after a day in weston-super-mare.. I had the bourbon burger and my partner had the cheese and bacon burger. My burger was absolutely fabulous although a bit pricey.. My partner wasn't so impressed stating her burger was 'average'. We will definitely return for another meal and possibly a stay too!..

We stayed for 1 night at the Red Lion and having been a visitor to the pub for over 10 years, this is the first time I've actually stayed. When we arrived in the room, the window was open and the heating on full blast which was a little strange so we immediately turned the heating off as it was...

We visited The Red Lion for a treat at the end of a busy week. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful, even though the place was very busy. Our food arrived swiftly, hot, well cooked and a good sized portion. The environment was cosy, clean and warm. A thoroughly enjoyable treat - to be repeated soon...
