Fancied a visit over the Christmas period to hopefully enjoy the atmosphere at this time of year at the Red Lion, it was great, the menu, food, rooms as always excellent. Their were bookings for large parties ,etc, but at no time was anyone forgotten, the service was "spot-on", the ambience magic, made a perfect start to our Christmas break,...

Met relatives here for lunch and the food was good. The service was a bit slow and they forgot to take all the plates away. Some of us asked for no onions and were told that would be fine but still received them. The puddings were of good quality including the brownie.

I chose this hotel for it's location halfway between two spots on my journey. The trip up to the rooms is via a narrow, circuitous staircase to the first landing and then you follow signs over many different levels to find your room. Do not bring large suitcases into the hotel! My room was very small with a single bed...

My wife and I revisited this restaurant, after a gap of a few years, the staff were friendly, we decided to eat in the restraint rather than the informal bar area. Our drinks were brought to the table, the waitress, in spite of a large group and other dinners took our order promptly. I settled on the beef pie, my...

Having stayed in nearly all of the modern hotel chains it really was nice to experience genuinely good service by experienced staff with an interest in the establishment. I was a person again, not a number . The room was nice, clean and comfotable. The restaurant, service and food quality were also without fault.

Not the first time we've stayed here and won't be the last. In between Oxford and Banbury with easy access to the M40, railways and Bicester village in a beautiful village, this was another enjoyable stay. Lovely breakfast served by very pleasant staff (Nat?), the only issue was the quirky nature of the room which was lovely but lack of...
