Great meeting place in the heart of the village. A wonderfully preserved building with old charm pub atmosphere. A good range of beers, great lunch and dinner menu, friendly and helpful staff. A good base for local sightseeing in an area steeped in history, particularly religious history. Well worth a visit for a stay, a meal or a beer!

Booked the cottage suite for one night on a Saturday. This was £85 per night. The bed is 2 singles pushed together, no sign of a decent topper to bridge the gap or stop you feeling the edges of the individual mattresses. Carpets weren't clean, bathroom also was not clean. The shower could do with a decent scrub as it...

We love the individual character of the rooms in Wetherspoon inns. The newly opened hotel rooms at the Red Lion have real character. Ours was incredibly quiet, given the town centre location (we stayed at weekend), with good facilities and efficient housekeeping. The only slight niggle was that, because there are only 14 rooms, there is not a dedicated reception...

Stayed 1 night here, the inn is nice and the staff are pleasant. The dining room is nice. The food is good and not overly expensive! And the beer is kept well. The room I stayed in was very basic and fairly clean! Now for the not so good, the breakfast was very basic with what I could see only...

My husband and I stayed at the red lion in Epworth and it was a great pleasure to stay there the staff were all helpful, considerate and mostly very pleasant people. We will be staying again at some point. The rooms are very clean and we had a good nights sleep.

Quaint old coaching inn. Rooms are ok but a it on the small size. Should have been in the cottage suite but they had no record off the booking so had a standard room. Beds abit lumpy and the shower takes a while to warm up. Breakfast was good with plenty of toast and tea or coffee. Village is pretty...

Just had a 2 night stay at the Red Lion and can thoroughly recommend the place. Ill get the niggles out of the way first, the shower looks like it has a back wash type thing on it but it was broken, the 'double bed' was two singles pushed together and that's about it. The pub itself is not the...

We enjoyed 2 nights in room 202 the Cottage Suite. We ate in the pub on the first evening the food was good. Breakfast was very nice and good quality. In terms of feedback an information sheet in the room would have helped with info about breakfast and check out times etc. A bit more attention to detail would have...

Stayed via a groupon deal, only 35 pounds for a double room and breakfast. Found the staff extremely friendly and welcoming, the room very clean and smart. Went down for dinner and had probably the best meal out we have ever had! Would strongly recommend a visit. Lovely village too!

A really warm welcome on arrival and our bags taken up to our very well-appointed and spotlessly clean accommodation. A full english breakfast in the morning, with other breakfast choices available should you require it. A really great two day break where the staff could not have been more helpful. We certainly would recommend the hotel and it is our...
