Old fashioned pub friendly staff but looking very dated. Popular with an older generation. The only pub in that area of town and not a posh place just down to earth pub which are a dying breed. There is a restaurant attached to pub us you fancy food.

Surprised to see this is an hotel, as although the word isused in the name, to all intents and purposes it seemed to me to be a pub, the entrance certainly takes one into a pub. Large...

The young receptionist...

Friendly staff and good bunch of locals here. Best place to go for a drink in Spalding and as a plus they have a good Indian attached to it if you get hungry. Changes the beers every once in a while but the regular bass is much appreciated by me!

My two friends and I stayed here for a night. The welcome was very friendly. The rooms were all perfectly fine. The car parking area is literally two minutes walk away.

This is my third stay at the Red Lion and as usual it was very pleasant. The hotel is feeling a little tired but don't let this put you off, it's rooms are always well presented and clean. The staff are super helpful and very attentive. Downstairs it is a typical English pub, with a loyal group of locals, many...

Booked into this hotel whilst attending a wedding. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. The room was comfortable and we slept very well. We had a full English breakfast, cereal and toast for breakfast. It was a very enjoyable stay.
