Very well located just a couple of miles from York city centre, just off a main road, and close to a lovely little English village called Upper Poppleton. I had one of the chalets which was nicely decorated with good amenities. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was four star hotel grade. There is a lovely garden just...

We visited the Red Lion for a meal today for the first time in about 20 years. From parking in the spacious car park to paying our bill, the whole experience was wonderful. The chef had a chat to us on the way in, the young waiter and waitress could not have been more helpful, but the food......... My husband...

Stunning! Stayed overnight, the food was gorgeous, the staff were fantastic and the place itself was stunning. The rooms are spot on, comfortable and fitted out to a great standard. Shower is unbelievable. The owner is really friendly and chatted and rightly proud of their achievements. Even the chickens are friendly! One minor point. Definitely consider triple glazing in the...

Went here for a weekend away with friends, the room was very clean and modern, the food from the bar, evening meal and breakfast were all exceptionally good. The bar is well stocked and is a very nice place to socialise, all the staff were extremely friendly and I would not hesitate to return. If you are just a couple...

This was an excellent find. Location in walking distance to park and ride into York. Great atmosphere. Friendly environment. Rooms to high spec, cleanliness throughout. The owners come into the restaurant and mingle with the guests. We will definitely stay here again. Food excellent.

Called in for food for the first time with my mother and two young boys ( 3 and 5 ). Food and drink order took quickly, however we waited around 35 minutes for it to arrive despite the place being quiet. Whilst waiting my youngest boy knocked over his drink, as you can imagine I was mortified and made to...
