Stayed at the Red Lion in Swanage recently. Reasonable rates for rooms which were very clean and well equipped.
Break fast was below average though. Considering the kitchen was only a few feet from our table and we could watch the chef make the cooked breakfast I can't quite work out how he did it.
No sounds of sizzling bacon or sounds of anything for that matter. He's there by the oven waiting.......... Waiting for what, I just don't know. All of a sudden after 15 minutes, breakfast suddenly appears in his hand-standard grub. Orange juice tasted musty. Tea tasted musty. As if both glass and cup have been stored in a coffin for 2 years( exaggerating slightly ).
Whole breakfast experience just a bit weird that's all.
Bedroom was fine though, no noise to speak of from beer garden.
Before the owners of the Red Lion get lairy about reading this review please bear in mind that is what it is. A review of my experience staying at your pub.
