Went here for a weekend away with friends, the room was very clean and modern, the food from the bar, evening meal and breakfast were all exceptionally good. The bar is well stocked and is a very nice place to socialise, all the staff were extremely friendly and I would not hesitate to return. If you are just a couple...

This was an excellent find. Location in walking distance to park and ride into York. Great atmosphere. Friendly environment. Rooms to high spec, cleanliness throughout. The owners come into the restaurant and mingle with the guests. We will definitely stay here again. Food excellent.

Called in for food for the first time with my mother and two young boys ( 3 and 5 ). Food and drink order took quickly, however we waited around 35 minutes for it to arrive despite the place being quiet. Whilst waiting my youngest boy knocked over his drink, as you can imagine I was mortified and made to...

Ahahahah. Those Chickens get more attention than any of us! pleased to hear that the food was good and exceeded expectation. When catering for a party of 11 it can sometimes cause a little confusion or delay but we think we have the best kitchen team in Yorkshire now. We do get quite a few guests who stay and then...

Rooms were a very high standard, motel style backing on to a lovely residents garden. Hosts were very attentive and helpful. Enjoyed the meal in the hotel - we were too tired to go into York - and good selection of wines. Park and ride nearby was a great resource. Thought it was excellent value for money and will stay...

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and that you were happy with the rooms. We have only been here for 2 years and the first thing we did was totally refurbish the bedrooms. All the walls were ripped out and new en-suites built. Reading your review I gather there was nothing that you...

Stopped at the red lion on our way home from a weekend in York. Both my hubby & I had the roast beef dinner in the restaurant. The dinner was lovely, beef cooked to perfection, beautiful veg, roast potatoes, mash & Yorkshire pudding were all lovely. Staff very smart & polite. Music was a little load in the restaurant bit...

Thank you very much for taking the time to review The Red Lion. I will pass on your comments to our chef about the beef. He is always looking for PERFECTION! All the staff are hand picked and trained by my wife and I so we are pleased to hear that you were happy with the staff.

The food was really tasty and plentiful, the only problem I had was the constant ringing of a guy,s mobile phone, this disturbed my enjoyment of the meal. I would not like to eat there on a permanent basis.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you found our food "really tasty and plentiful" However, I am sorry to hear that your visit was spoiled by some inconsiderate person with an i-phone. Had I have been there I would have asked him to be a little more understanding and tolerant. I'm afraid it's a sign...

We were in York for a family funeral so there were 22 of us staying at the Red Lion. The hospitality was second to none, large comfortable and clean rooms with a beautiful resident's garden area. The breakfast was delicious. Overall would highly recommend.

Hi James, Thank you for the review. It was a pleasure to be of assistance during your stay. Just wish it could have been under better circumstances. I agree the private residents garden does make it more appealing. Mark, Jean & the red lion team
