I stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are well presented, very clean and comfortable so tick all right the boxes in these departments. They are situated in a separate building from the pub, are a decent size and look out over a cricket pitch and so are quite light and airy.
The staff are friendly and welcoming and this is extended to dog owners and their dogs, though this doesn't bother me, some might be put off.
What can I say about the pub's food? The food is simply excellent. The menu has reasonsable variation, with the usual suspects steak, burger and fish all with excellent chips, but you must try the ribs. The steak and chips and beef burger were excellent, but the ribs blew those away!
Unfortunately, breakfast was a little lacking. I like to stay in places like these as you usually get a great tasting cooked breakfast, not the overcooked (or even under-cooked...), kept warm and now turned-to-rubber stuff that you get in the large chains. However, breakfast was alpen with coco pops or Special K and some fruit, placed in your room on a tray the night before and this is why I've marked The Red Lion overall as only "Very Good" and not "Excellent".
This wouldn't put me off staying here again as the location was great for a good night's sleep and all taken in account, I think it represented good value for money, but I might be swayed by a similar establishment that offered a cooked a breakfast.
