Having visited the Red Lion last month when in the area for a long distance riding event, my daughter was in no doubt as to where she wanted to celebrate her 15th birthday and as we were back in the area we were happy to oblige. Another fantastic meal with great food in very comfortable and friendly surroundings, with extremely... More

Having read very good reviews of the Red Lion we decided to ignore a pub restaurant 200 yards from our property and travel 12 miles to Midfield. It must be popular by the number of dinners but my wife's Honey & Soy Glazed Duck Stir Fry was a disaster. The duck was so over cooked she had to use my... More

We were staying locally in a rented cottage and were delighted to find the Red Lion so close. Although busy, we were accommodated without fuss and enjoyed a lovely meal,and returned twice more. A varied menu, not expensive and one party close to our table travelled frequently from Coldstream - quite a recommendation.

Came for a 3 night stay, as relatives had been here before for a meal and thought we would stay whilst visiting the area. What a great place, rooms were excellent, meals were well above standard. Nothing was a problem, very accomodating and the breakfast was cooked to order

If you need a decent meal, good service and we'll kept ale than this hits all the buttons. Ideally situated if you are staying in Wooler or Akeld area. Two of us ate for under £40 with a drink each. And the food was spot on (the poached salmon on a pea and parmisan risotto was superb). The pub does... More

Stayed here with my 15 year old daughter ahead of her doing a riding event. Lovely room 'out the back' with twin beds and a huge well appointed bathroom. Ate in the pub and had one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Breakfast was equally good. Will definitely come again.

We called in on way home and despite it being busy a table was found, drinks and food ordered from a good menu and several specials, which arrived promptly, was tasty and quickly consumed. Sweets followed from a good selection all for £30. Will definitely call again when next passing.
