Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

There's not really a lot to say - a small Lake District pub, just off the road to Coniston. Good food, good beer (in the current Good Beer Guide), a good room with a comfortable bed and also 'very good company'. A locals pub with people in early and thinning out later - opening hours are a little limited but not so that you'd notice. Second visit this year - this pub is on my list of 'approved stops'.

This was my second visit to the Red Lion in the past twelve months and it was every bit as good as my first visit. This time I stayed in the twin room, which was just as nice as the double room I stayed in last time. The room was spotless, really cosy and comfortable, with a lovely modern bathroom, that looked like it had been recently refurbed. I was going to have the excellent fish and chips, but the curries on the specials board tempted me away and I had a fantastic cauliflower and sweet pepper curry, washed down with a prefect pint of Flat Cap ale, from the Bank Top Brewery. I slept like a log, as the area around the pub is just so quiet and the pub shuts at 10pm. If you want stay in a lovely, friendly, Cumbrian pub, away from all the toursity bits of the area, but still have access to likes of Coniston / Ulverston and surrounding areas, then I can`t recommend the Red Lion highly enough. A massive thanks and hopefully I`ll be back next year.

We stayed one night here before walking the Cumbria Way. We were made extremely welcome and they made a fuss of our dog. The rooms are slightly dated but spotlessly clean. Breakfast was excellent and they made us a packed lunch for later. I would have no hesitation recommending it.

We needed accommodation close to a wedding that we were attending. Simply lovely and more than super clean. The landlord and landlady are so hospitable and made us feel welcome. The beds were so comfortable and the window seat with a view was perfect for a wet windy morning reading a book. The breakfast was the best I think I have ever eaten in and B&B and was definitely the best this year ! Totally can recommend this tranquil Inn.

Great down to earth hospitality, comfortable room, bed and tasty food. Just what a pair of weary cyclists need and a really good pint! Great location for the Lakes and Dales loop and secure bike storage provided.

I stayed for one night, in October and I can honestly say, that the Red Lion, is one of the nicest places, that I`ve ever stayed at and I stay overnight in a lot of places. As many others have mentioned, what makes the Red Lion so special, is the warmth and friendliness of the owners. Add onto that, that it`s a proper, unpretentious rural pub, that serves cracking ale and food. My room, was spotless, with a comfortable bed and an enormous bathroom, with a walk in shower ! I had fish and chips for my evening meal, which was really good and a pint of the Croby Blonde Ale, which was one of the best pints, I`ve had all year. After my evening meal, I retired upstairs and as I was getting ready for bed, I had the pleasure of watching an enormous thunder and lightening storm, over the fells in front of the pub, which was truly spectacular. I slept like a log, as once the pub shuts (10pm) the only sound you can hear, is that of the nearby sheep and the rain ( it`s the Lakes ! ). It`s that dark outside, you don`t even need to draw the curtains ! My only regret, is that I was only staying for one night and I`d have happily stayed all weekend. The Red Lion effortlessly gets onto my favourite places to stay list.

This town is tiny and a stop on the Cumbria Way. The owner went out of his way to be helpful and make us feel welcome and the food in this small hamlet was simple and delicious. If you are walking the Lake District and want an out of the way spot that is unpretentious and cozy, I say this is a good spot.

Lovely place to stay just off the Cumbrian Way. Wander down off the trail and across a couple of fields. Very friendly staff and excellent food. Wonderful old building. Made us very welcome thank you.

We stayed here one night after a day at the races couldn't have been accommodating. Lucy and Steve couldn't do enough for us. Room was larger than we expected and very clean and the water is always a plus. One regret we didn't book 2 nights.

When I got there it looked cool and fancy and when I got in side it was brilliant. The food was perfect and I would go again any time. Pudding was amazing and I couldn’t stop eating it. You should try it out . Service was quick and brilliant. The staff were nice and friendly so we’re the customers
