Just returned from a 3 night stay at the Red Lion. Excellent stay from first been greeted to the staff saying goodbye. I was allocated a clean, comfortable, spacious room with all the expected amenities. All the staff, without exception, were professional and very friendly. Most impressed that on the second evening they could remember what I'd ordered the previous night in both the bar and the restaurant. The clock from the town hall on the opposite of the road CAN be heard during the night but I certainly didn't find that it affected me. Also I found no problems with the traffic, despite the Red Lion being at the town's traffic lights. There was also none of the noise from groups of youths outside mentioned in a previous review. The bar had a good selection of ales, including some local West Country ones and was well patronised by both locals and visitors. Breakfast on each morning was plentiful and cooked to order. Evening meals were from an extensive menu and were well served, well cooked and of more than sufficient quantity. Indeed the steak, mushroom, Dorset ale suet pudding was probably the best that I've ever tasted. In all a really great break and I'm already planning a return visit within the next 18 months.
