Took a chance with this place during a long car journey en route to Swansea, booked direct with the Hotel and were offered a doulble en-suite at a very competitive price. Our room in this 16th Century inn was up a flight of narrow twisting stairs but it all adds to the character of the place. Room was good size,...

Decided to try lunch with my wife after several years after the last visit when the food was poor in hope that it had improved over time - no difference. We did not stay in the hotel as we live locally. I tried the gammon steak with chips, fried eggs and peas - the gammon was dry, the chips were...

Came here for a weekend break with the children, absolutely loved the warm welcome from the staff, felt really comforting knowing that they were very helpful with the needs of my children, as i have experienced in other hotels they dont seem keen to help with children reqiuremnts. The room was amazing and best bed I have slept in away...

A pleasant stay, but marred by the fact that the staff bathroom was directly next to our bedroom, meaning that we were kept awake by the toilet being flushed throughout the night and the shower being run late at night and early morning. The choice of food in the restaurant was limited and the "flower pot" dessert was overpriced for...

Called in here on our way to visit family, had lunch it was excellent, freshly cooked and presented very good, it is mid range prices, but best of all they accommodate dogs. Will most certainly be going there again in the future.

My husband and I spent two nights midweek, visiting Bicester Designer Shopping Village, with a couple of friends. We have been enjoying the Red Lion hospitality for almost 20 years, mainly eating but I have stayed overnight on a number of occasions. The restaurant and bar areas are comfortable and quaint. The food is the standard Old English Inn group...

We stopped off for a meal on journey home. I ordered an ale pie with green beans, carrots and broccoli and a garlic bread with cheese. My partner had hunters chicken. It arrived within 10 minutes. Microwaved?? Chicken was dry and the cheese on it was dry and crispy. The garlic ciabatta with cheese was awful, dry and crispy burnt...

Stopped for lunch on the way home from a shopping trip. The pub was quite busy but we found a table with no trouble. The service at the bar was very good, shame the Ruddles was not available. Ordered our food after a little while from a small but very adequate menu. When the food was delivered it was well...

Fancied a visit over the Christmas period to hopefully enjoy the atmosphere at this time of year at the Red Lion, it was great, the menu, food, rooms as always excellent.

Met relatives here for lunch and the food was good. The service was a bit slow and they forgot to take all the plates away. Some of us asked for no onions and were told that would be fine but still received them. The puddings were of good quality including the brownie.
