“Convenient, and very reasonable in price and quality”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2009

Stayed here one night whilst visiting relatives in Sheffield. Very convenient to M1 (Junction 31 where A57 crosses it) and surrounding area : Worksop, Rotherham, Chesterfield, Sheffield etc. On a busy road with traffic lights where a minor road crosses the A57, but we heard no sound from it. Friendly helpful and chatty staff. Rooms fairly basic but clean and warm. Good pub-style dining room which is value for money, especially as we had the two meals for £9-95 offer. Also had double room @ £17-50 each through the Old English Inns website. Mind you, the substantial english/continental breakfast is a further £6-95 each.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2008

The Red Lion is just outside of Sheffield, Yorkshire. It's easy to get to. Although not located in a picturesque area [rooms look out onto a road] the village it is in is small and quiet. The inn itself is really nice to relax in.

Nice decor, big rooms, big bathrooms all have a sense of large space. The rooms are well kept, the bathrooms are fraying at the edges.

The food served is good, extremely fresh. The breakfast in particular is hearty. The vegetarian options in breakfast are good as well.

The staff is quite friendly, some of them were very warm and helpful.
Overall, a pleasant relaxing place to stay in.

  • Liked — charming bar area, common areas
  • Disliked — worn out bathroom, view from hotel/room

Lovely quaint, rustic hotel with friendly staff. One of the Old English/ Green King chain and unlike others in that chain such as The Old Ferryboat and The Cross Hands they were not understaffed and the staff we did come into contact with were pleasant and helpful.
The food was of a very high quality and good value for money. We ate there 2 of the evenings and had 3 breakfasts. The room was clean and comfortable and my only complaint was that there was no radio in the room.
We shall certainly visit again.

  • Liked — The rustic ambience

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2005

Rooms are large and well appointed, with trouser press, tea making facilities, hairdryer and good quality bed linen and towels. Rooms are clean and well decorated, with just the smallest signs of wear in the bathroom. Staff are very polite and the food in the Inn is good quality, reasonably priced and with a varied selection. We would certainly stay here again.
