If you're looking for a 5* polished sterile Hotel, look elsewhere! If you value a rustic, beamed, 400 year old true English pub, then you really can't go wrong! The spiral stairs are a nightmare with luggage & the floors creak at the slightest movement which all added to the atmosphere. Our room was big & airy with windows to...

With the age of the building all of the rooms are different and so do not, all have the same features, the hotel has a lot of character and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay, meal and the Moto GP! We hope to see you next year

Quirky old hotel/pub/restaurant, up the spiral staircase to our room. Good sized room and a comfortable nights sleep. Good food served by very attentive friendly staff and reasonably priced. Lovely quiet area with some beautiful large houses around the village.. Well run establishment.

Beautiful old building and lovely location - but watch out for the low beams (we were warned!) Lovely, large room with large four-poster bed - though the only main light switch was by the bed which meant navigating by the small light over the entrance to the room. Room was not properly cleaned on one of the three mornings. Booking...

Took mother & Father in-law out to sunday dinner, most of the food was very nice, but I ordered the Roast beef, with two extras, the pigs in blankets and the Cauliflower cheese. Pigs in blankets were very nice, generally the dinner was ok but the beef was on the tough side, and the cauliflower cheese was only luke warm,...

Really old building with lots of tiny stairways - fantastic. Staff really friendly and helpful. The hotel does have parts which are very dusty and the bath was in need of a clean with the drains smelling after it rained- but it is a 400 year old building ! Room really spacious and comfy though it would have benefited from...

We stayed at the Red Lion for 3 nights in one of their superior rooms, Room 16. It was a rare break away for my husband and I. The welcome we got from Sarah, the Assistant Manager, was friendly and efficient as she showed us to our room. The room itself was quite dark due to the wood panelling and...

Went with the intention of having a nice mid week evening meal and the food was OK but just OK, quite small portions and no trimmings. Price is good and they do have meal deals in the day time I think.

Arrived at the hotel around 5pm and was checked and back in the bar 10 minutes later. First impressions were this is a nice little pub. The food was nice and served quickly, and the atmosphere in the bar was good. After a couple of hours I thought I best go to the room as I had a meeting first...
