Have a look at previous low star reviews and you will find something similar to our experience: we stayed here to attend a wedding. Room 3, it turns out, is above the bar's speakers and adjacent to the function room. We had bass vibrating through the bed and walls until 2.30am on the Friday and until midnight on the Saturday....

We are always keen to maintain a high standard of customer service and investigate areas where we may need to make improvements. On this occasion, we have no booking on our system, in October 2016, that matches the booking described in your review.

What's not to like - lovely modern fitted room, comfy and large bed, good pub food - particularly the pizzas, very dog friendly, and with very friendly and helpful staff. Beer was good and wine well priced. Breakfast was great too. Location is ideal - centre of a very pretty village/small town. Pub noise from downstairs was just background in... More

Clean and pleasant room. It would have been useful information to know accommodation booked was in an annex, a short walk from the Red Lion. Staff very friendly. Large ensuite with ample supply of towels. A nice selection of biscuits on tray with tea and coffee. Spectacular view over the North Devon countryside.

family joined us mid week whilst staying in the area, we had a really nice lunch at The Red Lion, service good with friendly staff, just a bit disappointed with outside seating area, as it was a nice day we wanted to be outside...but despite that we did enjoy our meal & would return.

We stayed at the Red Lion from Friday - Sunday to attend a friend's wedding on the Saturday and were extremely disappointed, particularly having enjoyed going to the restaurant last time we visited. We understand that this is a pub and that it has loud music, however, it is absolutely outrageous to charge £90 for a room directly above the... More

We are sorry to hear that you were not able to enjoy your stay at the Red Lion. We are a bar/restaurant situated at the centre of a thriving community, and on occasion, customers enjoy the lively ambience associated with a busy bar, particularly at the weekends. It was unusual that there was a party on Friday evening, and live... More

Booked a twin room at the Globe (sister hotel) and on arrival got upgraded to a room at the Red Lion. Unfortunately it was a double bed and not a twin but that wasn't a major problem. The bathroom was epic - a huge shower and plenty of space. The hotel guests had a separate entrance to their rooms so... More
