We stopped by for Sunday lunch although it was after 4 pm the food and service were excellent as well as very good value. We met the landlord who took time to recommend some of the menu and we were well looked after by all the staff. I would highly recommend if you enjoy good traditional fare.

Stayed 1 night, had a reunion in York, nothing to write home about however it was clean but basic and expected more for the price. Breakfast was good, full English all the trimmings. Handy for the park and ride as it was walking distance and easy to find on the main road.

Had a lovely meal with my Partner at The Red Lion, bit disappointed with the Black Sheep Ale though we did seem to be the first customers of the evening which may have explained it. Saying that my Partners rump steak was great, ignore Morrissey it was both succulent and tasty (though perhaps not kind) and my curried chicken was... More

We called in for a bite to eat on our way to York. What a good choice. The food was superb , my wife had a Yorkshire Ham salad which was really delicious, thick slices of home cooked Ham , not the wet ham you get usually, and I had an Indian curry, delicious. Writing about them makes my mouth... More

We were looking for somewhere on a Saturday night that wasn't fully booked and ended up at the Red Lion. The food was good value and really nice. Between us we had a Red Lion gourmet burger, a vegetarian stroganoff and scampi and chips. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Definitely recommended.

Very well located just a couple of miles from York city centre, just off a main road, and close to a lovely little English village called Upper Poppleton. I had one of the chalets which was nicely decorated with good amenities. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was four star hotel grade. There is a lovely garden just... More
