Out for the day and decided to try for sunday lunch. First impressions was good, very clean and neat. with a choice of beers at the bar. service is good although getting the bill at the end took too long too arrive, although the bar was busy. Meals were excellent and very fillling. reasonably priced and would probably go back...

Booked so I could attend an event nearby, the room was clean and comfortable, the bed was very well presented and comfortable, staff were polite, professional and helpful. Unfortunately I didn't opt for the breakfast and I didn't eat at the hotel, so I can only review the room itself.

Just visiting Rothwell with my wife. We stopped at the Red Lion for lunch, and what a pleasant experience it was for both of us. The food was very good indeed, well prepared, well cooked and well presented, not your average pub lunch in any way. We ordered steaks, one to be medium rare, one rare (with a fried egg...

We stopped here on our way home from Shropshire. My husband had pate to start. Delicious homemade. The we had roast pork. Plenty of pork, nicely cooked vegetables and Yorkshire pudding. Friendly efficient staff nice clean restaurant. If we lived nearer we would return. Local ales served, I had one called Derek really good

Great menu, great food. Nice pub, modern, polite staff. Shame it's not closer to Preston! Our party had the chicken, chorizo and Monterey jack cheddar ciabatta, sweet chilli beef with roasted onion ciabatta and rump steak with red wine and peppercorn sauce.....lovely!

Recently refurbished, this establishment now hosts regular music events in their Barn building attached. Complete with own bar, very private for functions. Recently went to a funeral "wake" there and the buffet was superb, as were the staff and surroundings. Friends stayed overnight and were also very happy.

I have stayed previously at the Red Lion and have to warn anyone staying at weekends it can be rather noisy. My first stay there was wedding and the guests were outside the pub shouting and singing to the very early hours. Breakfast was included, continental style. My next stay was last Saturday. Booked in at 7pm £35 for a...

The pub of this place was a very nice place in a calm quite environment which is very clean and neat too. For a smaller town like that, it was a crowded place (which means that this place should be a good one). Once we go there after we got the first drink we were informed that they are not...

Popped in to this recently refurbished hostelry, for a quick bite. Pleasantly surprised at the range of menu and prices. Great value for a mid week lunch in very nice traditional pub surroundings. Waited a bit for the food, but realised why when a very large funeral party arrived and went to a private room. Despite this our order was...

Our reservation was made back in November 2015 but was phoned on the MORNING of check-in that we were double-booked leaving us no time to arrange anywhere else as it was the British Grand Prix weekend. Alternative accommodation was located across the road but was a double room with a four-poster bed unsuitable for our driver with medical problems who...
