I think we were lucky as in February this amazing village is relatively quiet. The Red Lion is the first pub you get to having left the Abbey. They are both child and dog friendly! Great for us with a grandchild and two dogs. We all ate well and I can recommend the Game casserole! My daughters had an excellent...

I love this pub. It has a great warming feel and is amazing in the summer although booking is strongly recommended for meals. The food is traditional and you won't be disappointed for an amazing English pub experience. My only criticism is they should put more staff on as there is usually a wait for drinks

I stay here all the time and cannot fault it. I am annoyingly difficult to please but this place is always good, they look after you like its your own home and the breakfast experience is always enhanced by the superb Auntie Eileen :)

We decided to simply pick the first pub we came to and what a stroke of luck! This is a gorgeous, cosy, reasonably priced restaurant that was perfect! The small dishes menu was fantastic for a hot lunch!

Red Lion was really cozy. We eat there and elsewhere in Lacock and I have to say that the meal was very tasty and compared to other restaurants in the area, very good value . Service was welcoming, helpful, and attentive, whilst far from intrusive. I can recommend the cheeseboard. From the bedroom I could hear some noise from the...

If your looking for a quiet break with good food, real ales and a log fire look no more. This is our 6th stay in the red lion and we will continue to visit every year. Lacock is a charming unspoilt village which can be walked around in 15 minutes.

Perfect one-night stay in a one-of-a kind village. Ideal for National Trust members. Would recommend a visit to the Abbey, a walk in the woods, a cream tea at the 'Sign of the Angel' pub and a meal in the Red Lion. A pint, hearty meat main dish and their alcoholic trifle. This was idyllic and the kind of memory...

We arranged to meet wo good friends who we first met on holiday in Zakynthos. The staff of this Wadsworth inn situated in the famous National Trust village of Lacock were excellent. Very experienced and friendly. We reserved a table near the log fire on a bitterly cold day. We ordered haddock fish cakes with chips and salad followed by...

Of course this pub can be overrun with hordes of gaping tourists......this quaint village isn't a prime film location for nothing. However, if you can drop into the pub when it's not crazy-busy, it's a delightful place to be. Service is slow, but friendly.....sit back and relax by the fireplace and you won't be disappointed. Terrific homemade soup and generous...
