I had delightful stay at the Red Lion. I used it as a base to walk several days along Hadrian Wall and it was very convenient. The hotel is full of character and is very comfortable. The village is quaint and quiet. The owners were lovely and helpful. I do not hesitate to recommend the Red Lion.

Stayed at the Red Lion over the Easter weekend, rooms very comfortable, modern, and clean. Dinner in the restaurant was delicious, local produce with a modern twist. Breakfast was also great with great selection. Presentation of meals/food also fantastic.

Red Lion has improved a lot recently. Cosy village pub, well located for Hadrians Wall. Good bar with open fire and 2 largely restaurant rooms. Small range of beers but excellent condition. Food exceptional. Nice staff. Accommodation.

Called in at lunchtime, menu was appealing and to a high, homemade impressive standard. Chose the roast baguette and was not disappointed. Lovely atmosphere with the fires on, nice lounge area in the front which looked comfortable. I will return :-)
