Disappointed- bar man spills my drink and tops it up with a different beer! I complain and get told that it's just beer and makes no difference. I complain again and a replacement pint Show some respect for your beer. The rooms themselves are very good and the staff are generally helpful.

Called in at the Red Lion after playing 18 holes of golf at Harwood Golf Club - 10 minutes away. Nice, clean, well furnished place with excellent choice of meals. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Large car park with well spaced areas and able to accommodate all sizes of cars.
