Went today as we wanted a Sunday lunch. Never again it was the worse meal I've had. Won't be returning for a Sunday lunch. Table next to us also complaint. Cold food, frozen roast potatoes and Yorkshire puddings.

We stayed in this hotel last weekend, my partner was in a cast and was using crutches so they moved us to the family room so it was easier for him and closer to the doors. All the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. We ate in the restaurant had 3 courses and was really surprised how affordable it is. Food was great. Furthermore, my partner left his valuable watch there by accident, we hadn’t even got back home before the hotel rang and said it was there and they would send it out first class signed for delivery. We would definitely come back again!

Very nice hotel extremely handy as just of Junction 31 of the M1. Choose of food very good and well cooked especially the Full English breakfast. There would have been a 5 star rating if not for poor WiFi reception!

Reviewed this place 2 years ago and nothing has changed, in fact it's got worse. Still has the scruffy outside tables and broken heaters. still takes ages to get served. Expensive poor quality beer. The place seams to attract really obnoxious miserable office types who are probably reps on a cheap paid for night's digs by there employers. Tables covered in Laptops and phones. More like a call centre than a pub.

Lack of choice was a problem to our enjoyment. No Malbec or Merlot no rump steak no aubergines what we had was good but second choice. Perhaps a bit more effort with stock management might be helpful.good parking friendly staff well presented food just a lack of beverages and food

As locals we tend to avoid eating here due to poor previous experiences. However we decided to book last minute for a night out with friends. We arrived 30 minutes early but our table was ready even though the restaurant was relatively busy. Service was excellent and although the food is standard chain pub food, it was really nice. My steak was a little over cooked but that's me being picky. The menu was also a bit more inventive than our last visit. They make a great gin & tonic in fishbowl glasses and have a good selection of cask ales. If they can keep up this standard of food and service we will be returning.

Arriving on Sunday night there was a notice up to say that last orders would be taken at 7.45. Luckily we had booked for 7.45 so that was not a problem. I say luckily, but really I should have said unluckily. First off we are told there are no roast dinners and no steaks. As these are the mainstay of the menu that cut the options down considerably. One of our party of 4 wanted whitebait as a starter. They didn't have any. Another member wanted fish and chips from the smaller meals menu. They didn't have any. She then settled for a larger portion. When the food arrived my meal, a supposed half rack of ribs from the smaller meals menu, was about enough to feed a child of 6, along with its small dessertspoon amount of peas and a reasonable portion of chips. The ribs tasted as if they had been hanging around for a long time being kept warm, and were overdone. When ordering dessert one person asked for cheese and biscuits. Yes, you've guessed it. They didn't have any. In despair and for the sheer hell of it, I asked for a coffee. Well what a surprise, there was not even any coffee (although, to be fair, we were offered instant, which one member took up and she was not charged for it at the end). As the staff were unfailingly polite and pleasant it would be nice to give them a star, so that is what the one star is for. Otherwise, if it was possible to do so, I would give no stars.

We booked 3 nights at the Red Lion Inn just after Christmas due to the positive feedback (and to get away from the in-laws) and it was so enjoyable we wished we stayed for longer! Our room was clean, modern and spacious enough for our toddler to wander around in. The room door is heavy though so unless you hold it in time will slam shut really loudly. Our included breakfast was really nice and the staff was really friendly and helpful especially when we have an attention seeking child on hand. We also tried the lunch menu as well which was really good value for money - probably why it gets busy at certain times. We've stayed quite a few hotels inc. 5 star ones and for my wife to say this is the best one..well....that's saying something!! Thanks to everyone at the Red Lion Inn and we'll back again next christmas

Having called here a few months back for a Sunday lunch and being impressed by the size of the meal we got, we decided to return for Sunday lunch again. My wife opted for the beef, and I paid the extra £1 or so to get pork and beef. We waited in anticipation of similar meal to the previous one, unfortunately it wasn’t to be. The meals were considerably smaller than before and the amount of meat was abysmal. This is something you may expect when your paying £6 - £7,but at £10+ I expected more. Very disappointed. The service was excellent, can’t fault that, but let down by the meal

Went in for an early evening meal and was pleasantly supprised with the menu my wife had game pie and i had baked sea bass on rice we both have decided we will go back and try other dishes on the menu
