A one night business stay was well served by the Lion, a very old and characterful hotel. A room over the bar and facing the road I feared would be noisy but not the case. A good sleep was had in a well appointed, clean room. Lots of hot water ,towels, coffee and tea. A good choice for breakfast. Nice to be offered fish, thoroughly enjoyed the kippers. Very good value.
