The Red Lion is a proper old style pub but with all the modern things such as a good sized covered smoking area, beer garden, hi-tech juke box and pool table. I stayed with a colleague for 4 nights. The room was a ground floor triple in the purpose built modern block a minutes walk from the pub. The room was ensuite but the bathroom was very small with shower, toilet and sink all within touching distance from the door. A metal tray for toiletries over the sink made teeth cleaning a trickier task as you couldn't just spit into the sink you had to lean around. BUT these are petty things. In general the room served our purposes. Lots of light, windows on two sides that opened and had both blinds and curtains for privacy , very comfy single beds and more than enough wardrobe and drawer space. We were unable to try the evening meals as we were not back before 8.00pm, final serving but we did have breakfast.. Orange juice, choice of cereals, toast with jam, marmite, etc and a full english breakfast. And all served by the wonderful landlady Janet. She and her husband weree excellent hosts and made us feel really welcome from the moment we arrived. We did avail ourselves of the bar later on and once again found very friendly staff and excellent beer. Olde Trip in my case! There were lots of events on - darts, poker, pool, auunt sally, and a music festival on the Saturday after we left. There is a paper shop five minutes walk away that also sells snacks. We would definitely go again on business and agreed we would use it as a stopping point or central stay for a look around the area. Room for improvement? Bigger flat screen TV with more channels. Offer of a morning paper. The other would require remodelling - a bigger bathroom.
