This hotel should remain as just a pub, they do not cater well for bed and breakfast. The band is far to loud when you are trying to sleep in rooms above them, if you had told us this we would not have booked. The rooms are grubby and bathrooms need a major overhaul. TV did not work, and the...

Stayed here whilst attending family function. Greeted by extremely friendly staff, the room was good and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was good and well cooked using locally produced food. Excellent value for money. Would recommend the Red Lion

Booked at beginning of September for one night on Saturday 15th October.. Called them that afternoon to say we would be arriving a little late around 9pm and the lady said no problem and took our name too.

After being dissapointed once again at Wetherspoons Driffield we eventually booked a table at the Red Lion. If we had known how good the food was we would have visited earlier. Good home cooked food in a pleasant atmosphere, polite and welcoming staff. Definately our choice for our night out in Driffield in future

Quite an old building. Stopped off for one night. Large car park so no parking issues. Room was clean but in need of updating. Beds were lumpy and toilet made a strange sound after use. Tea and coffee in room but perhaps things could have been upgraded slightly e.g. box of tissues, choice of toiletries Found the staff very friendly...

Had the three course Sunday dinner for £11.95 which is extremely reasonable. It was absolutely stunning and the staff were all very friendly. The Yorkshire puddings are huge and very tasty. Highly recommended :)

I've visited here 3 times now but this is the 1st I had food. 1st off need new staff ASAP The large blonde woman who I assume is the manager has enough attitude to turn milk sour but not to run a kitchen or staff!

Been going here for years for meals now, and have never been disappointed. Staff are always friendly, and if you're after a proper pub grub meal, then this is the place to be! You honestly will not get a better steak pie. INCREDIBLE.
