The Red Lion Inn
Ranked #3 of 5 Dittisham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 October 2007

We stayed in one of the superior rooms, and were very pleasantly surprised, nice room, friendly atmosphere. Our room had the fabulous view of the dart.
Noting one of the other reviewer's comments, Dittisham is not Dartmouth, but is a very small village upstream, great for peace and quiet.
Some of the roads around Dittisham are very narrow, so take care where your GPS takes you!. The pub has a good car park, with steps up to the back door.
To give an idea of the atmosphere, the pub also runs the tiny local post office / shop, which adjoins the pub, and has a joining door.
We ate in the pub restaurant on both nights,and were very happy with the meals, which I would rate as good to very good pub food.

Having looked on the internet for a small friendly pub/hotel in the Dartmouth area we found the Red Lion at Dittisham, we saw the link to the Daily Telegraph article written by Paddy Burt and thought we had struck gold because we enjoy good food in pleasant surroundings. Please be aware that this establishment changed hands in February 2007 and is not what it used to be, it now only serves what should be classed as a pub food menu which has to be ordered at the bar and tables are only laid up when food is ordered so it is not a restaurant.
The bedrooms are in need of refurbishment and as well as having to ask for clean towels we never did find the telephone that was supposed to be in the room.
After having paid £520 for Dinner Bed & Breakfast for 2 people for 4 nights I feel I should warn other potential visitors.
Oh and its not suitable for the disabled or unfit, lots of steps up from the car park!!

The Red Lion is one of those pubs (you picture in your head when you think of a traditional Pub)2 large log fires in the winter make it lovely and cosy.
Lovely views of the river dart from the rear beer garden. With lots of boats moored in the river.
Food is top notch (excellently presented and cooked just righti had a really nice sea bass).
Accomodation is very good with again lovely views of the River Dart. Breakfast to keep you going all day to. Phil and Kiersten the proprietor s have definatly got it right here . Can,t wait to go back in the summer and sit on the balcony looking out across the water.
