If you are booked into the Manor House as opposed to the main Red Lion building itself then I would say avoid. The rooms in the Manor House are too cramped and the bathrooms were tiny and a bit tired - the only luxury to be had was the Moulton Brown products. Although water is complimentary in the bedrooms there are no proper glasses provided. The only ones where in the bathroom and they were tiny and far from clean. I am sure the owners could stretch to a biscuit with the tea/coffee. The floors creaked and other residents in the Manor House complained of the pokey rooms, two residents moved out when we were there. The menus are too pricey and the food rich. A couple who were on a dinner, bed & breakfast package for two nights complained after the first night because the food wasn't up to much and over priced. The breakfast experience wasn't much better, not a lot on the plate and too much disorganisation of staff who were confused as to where we would be seated. We were given brown and white toast even though you could state your preference and no one bothered to ask - I would say the portions were mean! You cannot open the windows for ventilation because notices state that midges from the river can be a problem. Although it's in a great location and the owners seem to own quite a bit of the property nearby, I would venture elsewhere in future. I would probably pop in for a pint in future but never to stay again.
