The Atherstone Red Lion Hotel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Atherstone
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Booked a surprise birthday meal for 26 people in the Lady Godiva room, we had arranged a set menu with a choice of 3 starters, main course and desert. The main course dishes were a choice of Braised Beef, Chicken or Sea Bass, every guest without exception all had a fabulous meal. The food was cooked to perfection, it all arrived quickly and was hot, there were also generous portions of a selection of vegetables, which again were freshly cooked. The hotel were very accommodating when it came to the wine selection, the prices were very reasonable and they offered to buy in any wines we wanted for the event.

There was a wedding function on a the same time, this had no decrement all impact on the service, the only possible negative was that the music from the wedding party was quite loud. Fortunately as all the birthday party guests were in a party mood it didn't detract from our event.

I would definitely recommend the Red Lion for any function, two couples had booked in to stay overnight and said that their rooms were beautiful complete with a four poster bed.

We recently got married and The Atherstone Red Lion Hotel hosted our reception. They made our special day a truly memorable experience from start to finish. The staff were professional and their expertise made the planning and the day itself go without a hitch. Our guests (all 106 of them!) were raving about the quality of the food and it was a day we will always remember. Thank you very much to all the serving staff, to Gemma, Trudy and Andrew for being extremely proffessional and accomodating!, and of course to Chef who provided an oustanding meal! What I really found amazing was the fact that members of staff put any gift envelopes and presents they found straight into our room for safekeeping. In the evening another 100 guests arrived and the buffet they provided was more than adequate. It was amazing value for money and I would recommend this venue to anyone who is planning to get married. It was just the right amount of intamacy, despite the number of guests, and the room, when dressed looked incredible. Thank you again for a truly remarkable, memorable, brilliant day! Love to you all!

Room Tip: We were staying in the honeymoon suite and it was more than we could have expected

We stayed there for 2 nights and we had dinner there as well.
The room was unique and very clean. Dinner were top quality! Supper Delicious and fresh, the staff at the bar&restaurant were friendly. Free parking it's good benefit, all over just right not too much not too less.

We have stayed at this hotel many times on business and on the whole it has been good value for money, however we recently stayed again on business and found not only our room dirty, but also the staff working at Reception and for morning breakfast were trying to do all jobs at once. We waited over 30 minutes for our breakfast which was completely different to what we ordered!

The attention to detail has slipped and it's starting to show. As per other reviews I have read, I have had lovely evening meals and breakfasts but on this stay it was very poor service. This could be a gem again as the potential is huge.

Had great meal here in January with four friends so returned for dinner in May with two Australian friends who were visiting us. It was a very disappointing meal almost to the point of embarrassment and confirmed to our friends that service and food in England is of poor quality. The standards compared to a few months earlier had dropped considerably. Both our waiters were very young and one admitted it was his first night and was struggling. Neither of them knew anything about the menu & food that was being served and to go and find out the answers to our queries. When we called the young waiter for some coffees he replied " what's that?" And had to be asked to take away the dirty plates when he bought the coffees. All of this indicated a complete lack of adequate training. The food was mediocre, barely hot, over cooked vegetables and the Spanish quiche looked as if it had come out of a packet from the co-op! On top of this the decaf espresso turned out to be instant coffee and the staff admitted this was the case when asked about it.
This could be such a great place to eat but service and poor quality food lets it down. All in all a very disappointing evening and has left us not wanting to go back again.
