Lovely Hosts and Worth a Stay
Initial impressions are the Red Lion appears to be undergoing an external revamp with the over window signs currently missing. The pub is deceptively large and traditional and would benefit from an update, especially in the area where the pool table is situated. It is an old building with thick walls, however those separating the bedrooms are thin and noise bleeds through easily. The bedroom windows are single glazed sash type and do little to insulate from heat/cold or sound - ear plugs are a must if staying as the pub sits on a bend in the road and the local church bells sound through the night. The hosts are what make this place work, Gill and Simon are friendly and helpful and show respect to guests; listening and acting upon requests and making them feel welcome. Breakfast is affordable and well cooked and special requirements are accommodated (veggie specific items would be an improvement though). Our triple room was clean and tidy with good facilities and a nice en-suite. The bedding was fresh if a bit outdated. In terms of improvements i would swap the large main bed for a standard double to liberate some space as there is also a single bed in the room. The fabric furnishings are showing signs of wear and could be replaced with wood to make them more durable and easier to clean. I think the hosts are working hard to make the Red Lion a good choice to stay in the area, I am sure with more customers they will find the means to further improve standards in the future.

Good 6.0
Very noisy church clock all night.
Nicely old-style room, comfortable and clean - but the church clock directly across the road (see the address!) chimed loudly every hour, half-hour and quarter-hour ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT and kept waking me up! This is ridiculously annoying, and in other places I've stayed with nearby church clocks they have usually gone silent overnight - this one needs to do so!
