There was nothing wrong with this pub/B&B until we actually tried to sleep. Nice staff, lovely beer garden and private garden for guests. However, it is located along the A59 and rooms are WAY TOO CLOSE to the road (or walls and windows are not well designed!) because I just did not sleep all night. Shame for an inn... On...

I booked a table for 4 last Sunday. Not been here for lunch or dinner before. All 4 of us had different dishes and the overall verdict was EXCELLENT. We had a warm welcome. One of our party is disabled and the staff were very helpful in arranging things to suit which made the lunch one of the best we...

My partner and I stayed here for the night before a family function and opted for The Red Lion because we'd been in for a drink and Sunday lunch before now and had thoroughly enjoyed it. All the staff have been welcoming and friendly on every occasion and we were checked in quickly and efficiently. The room was nice and...

Nice friendly staff, lovely girl behind the bar, taking food orders and booking people in. Nothing too much trouble at all. Food nice and not a long wait either, will call in again if we are over that way.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday lunch, one of beef and one of pork. Nicely cooked and presented, and good value for money. Sherry trifle to follow was excellent! Good service from friendly staff. Ambience perhaps a little old fashioned, but overall a welcoming dining room.

Thanks Steve, Much appreciated. Glad to hear that the Sunday lunch was to your liking. My wife and I have been here just 3 years and it has been a struggle to regain the customer confidence that the Red Lion deserves. In the 3 years we have been here we have refurbished all the bedrooms and the gardens plus the...

We had afternoon tea here this afternoon,which was a gift from my daughter. We both thought it was excellent as there was a great variety of savoury and sweets.The cakes were delicious and just the right size.We were offered a top up for tea which was no problem. My only advice would be to go hungry,as it was too good...

Being A Yorkshire man I appreciate value for money, if you are of this frame of mind then avoid this establishment. A meal of sandwiches consisting of a round of sandwiches ( I.e.

Visited with family after a day out in Harrogate, the food was cold, staff rude and not a very nice atmosphere to eat in. Wouldn't recommend for a meal. We didn't stay over the night but judging by the food and bar service we are glad we didn't! Sunday lunch with rock hard Yorkshire puddings and blatant reheated food! To...

Well, I can only imagine that you have got us mixed up with somewhere else. There are 3 Red Lions in York. Maybe it was one of those. Here at the Upper Poppleton Red Lion we pride ourselves on producing FRESH, Traditional, home-cooked food and having service with a smile. All this is reflected in our other reviews. What is...

The Red Lion is a great base for visiting York. Comfortable and well serviced rooms and tasty home cooked food. My wife and I stayed here for four nights recently and we enjoyed it very much. There is a large car park near to the rooms and there is a Park and Ride bus station with a large car park...

I had Afternoon Tea here, with my Mother. The food was delicious...... Only one thing that left us slightly disappointed was that we only had One small teapot of Tea between us, with no offer of a top up! Our Friends had been the week before and the Gentleman that served them, made sure that all was satisfactory with their...
