8/10 Very good

Definitely worth a visit
A friendly welcome, a comfortable and clean room, a good quality evening meal at a fair price and a quality breakfast the next morning. An interesting village setting, with nearby historic river mill and nearby national Trust property 2 miles down the road. Good value and a definite thumbs up from my wife and I. We would definitely visit again.

This hotel is in an ideal rural location, with nice walks nearby. Our room was clean and comfortable, and we particularly enjoyed the home-made biscuits with the good selection of in-room teas and coffee. The food here was delicious, and the staff are friendly, efficient and welcoming.

Our Stay at The Red Lion
Very nice, welcoming staff who phoned us before our arrival, to inform us of when the kitchen stopped serving food in the evening. However, we were disappointed with the quality of our breakfast. Our scrambled eggs seemed more like fried and the porridge was too stodgy to eat.
