We had a two night break and had two double rooms booked. We had experienced long delays during our journey and didn't arrive until 1am. We phoned several times to let the landlord know our impending arrival times, and he waited up for us which we were truly appreciative after a six hour drive. Comfy beds in both rooms, coffee...

I was very warmly welcomed to The Red Lion with a lovely smile and polite conversation. The pub had a nice atmosphere and wasn't too crowded on my visit. The food was outstanding. I only chose the very simple dish of ham, egg & chips and now wish I'd noticed the specials board before ordering as there were many options...

Great traditional Sunday carvey at a good price. Tasty and well cooked meats and veg that looked and tasted like it was picked fresh from the field that day:) the only down side was the deserts that were quite pricey snd the portion size of the cheese cake was tiny. But overall a lovely lunch...... will be back.

As soon as we walked into this pub we felt at home, met by friendly, helpful staff and locals. Really enjoyed Bateman's Gold, lovely evening meal, wine and all reasonably priced. We stayed the night in a cosy, comfortable room and had a peaceful nights sleep. The breakfast is not for the faint hearted, amazing Lincolnshire sausages, this will set...

The Red Lion is well placed between Boston and Horncastle and is close to Woodhall Spa and is well worth a visit as a destination in its own right as well as a break en route. There are nice outdoor areas, climbing frame type play area for the children and lots of room inside. First impressions count and at the...

The Red Lion advertises itself as a "good honest country Inn" and that sums up the place in a sentence. I stayed here for one night on business and experienced a very warm welcome from the hosts. The rooms are clean, comfortable and have everything you need. The food is excellent and the proportions very generous, I can't see anybody...

This is a beautiful and charming traditional English pub, with well appointed rooms, open fires, home cooked fayre and good beers. The staff are friendly and polite, the atmosphere is warm and cozy. Lovely seating areas for a quiet drink or meals. Great specials boards and it's as English now as it was when my parents brought me here as...

I have read some previous reviews, and wonder if people are getting muddled up with the Red Lion at East Kirkby ... I haven't been there, so can't comment, but I CAN say that I have been to the Red Lion at Revesby twice in the last fortnight and on both occasions the food has been plentiful and delicious.
