We stayed as a family of 3 for 2 nights (Thurs & Fri) as a base for a wedding we were attending fairly close by. The room was immaculate, new carpets, plenty of coffee/tea/milk (so many places we have stayed give 2 tea bags, 2 coffee sachets and 2 milk....not enough) and comfy beds. We got a very warm welcome...

Staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean adequately furnished (comfortable bed). If I was being picky the bathroom could do with a refurbishment some time in the near future. The breakfast was good and reasonably priced. There's free Wifi and car parking.

The hosts were very friendly and helpful and the food was good and extremely reasonable. The bedroom was clean and comfortable. Good choice of real ale. The car park was a bonus and we would have no hesitation in booking again.

Stayed the night as going to wedding nearby. Really friendly welcome. Room spotless and comfortable. Excellent value for money.Struggled to get a taxi to wedding and the friendly landlord kindly came to our rescue. They now do breakfast but unfortunately we had to make an early dart. Tarvin is a lovely village. Would like to visit the red lion again...
