On arrival it looked liked the dining area was being decorated so there was only a small bar area available. I was shown outside along a path to a row of three rooms (motel style) mine was no.2 it was dimly lit but was warm and after a tedious 4 hours I was just relieved to be there. However on...

Out in the country,just a few miles from Milton Keynes and the M1 Motorway. Charming old place,very friendly Hosts.Closed from 1430 to 1800 which is a bit annoying if you want to eat or have a beer.The Swan five minutes away covers that. The rooms are in an old out building in need of some TLC.All amenities you would expect,some...

The Red Lion is located in the very quiet village of Salford, Nr. Milton Keynes. The accommodation is separate from the pub In a converted stable block. The room needs an update, especially the bathroom which has a large bath and small hand shower over. The removal of the bath and a nice large proper shower would make all the...

I stayed here with my husband as we had a wedding to attend nearby - we were on a budget so were not expecting luxury and this place was fine for what we wanted. A comfy bed, a hot bath, and a delicious breakfast. Much better value than the Premier Inn! The room itself (outside converted stable block) could do...

Forget you chain hotels this is a lovely hotel just outside Milton Keynes, they have a great little bar and the food is great. Mixed grill was fantastic well worth a visit, and the staff are very friendly. A really nice proper country pub one of those places hard to find these days.

We had a nice lunch here today with members of our family. The food was nice and the service friendly. We have been here a few times now as it is a good place for everyone to meet. The service was at the right pace giving us all the opportunity to catch up. We will be back at some point.

A pleasant and traditional village pub, it consists of two rooms with one very much more geared up for eating since all the tables were laid up for food. Staff were pleasant and friendly, and there is a good sized beer garden at the rear, although this is predominantly just grass with limited seating. The bar area to the left...

The Red Lion is a small village pub in Salford, a few minutes drive from the hustle and bustle of Milton Keynes. It's an old pub and carries that charm of age, but it is clean. The innkeeper adds the warmth and welcome that one would expect from such an hidden gem. The accommodation is almost a secret, converted outbuildings,...
