We visited The Red Lion for a treat at the end of a busy week. We were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful, even though the place was very busy. Our food arrived swiftly, hot, well cooked and a good sized portion. The environment was cosy, clean and warm. A thoroughly enjoyable treat - to be repeated soon...

Lovely oldey world hotel. Dates back to the 1400s. Spiral staircase to the rooms may not suit everyone, room was nice, bed very comfortable. Warm welcome by the staff. Small restaurant so maybe better to book in advance of your stay. Plenty of choice on the evening menu for all tastes and dietary requirements. Good varied choice for breakfast.

It seems that you may have mistaken your Red Lions, we are situated in Adderbury.

The rooms are well maintained but this is an old building; the spiral staircase and bewildering layout of the rooms may not suit everyone. This is a very rural, rustic inn. Mind your head! There is a bar divided into three areas. This meant I could find a place out of the way of the TV and enjoy the atmosphere....

Twice I’ve dined here recently and have not been impressed. Used to be very good but seems to have gone down in quality lately and expensive for what you get. The Sunday roast (Beef and Pork loin) was nearly £1 more than the just Beef choice but had only one small slice of Pork! Staff good and helpful though.

We just wanted a quick snack, food was very good service was as you should expect with a friendly welcome, nice open fire as we eat in the bar area. The fish we had was good with nice white fish meat, not just all batter as you end up with in some places.

Bedroom great but narrow spiral stairs would not suit everyone. Never stayed in a room with a galleried bathroom before, everything clean and comfortable. Food was OK but very poor value. I ordered fish risotto, which included 2 small overdone fillets, 2 scallops and 3 small prawns. Greene King owned.
