We visited this hotel as a surprise for my friends 50th. The hotel has a very nice pub with beautiful rooms above, and situated in the heart of Kirkby. However in my many years of travel I have never received a worse welcome by any hotel. Despite us being polite, friendly and generally complimentary on the hotel and food, we... More

First day of the Xmas market had a look round the little town. Checked a few menus outside other pubs and decided to go in here. I had the chicken and beef strips with a peppercorn sauce and chips and veg. The veg were cooked to perfection and the meat was lovely and tender. My friend had cod and chips... More

Stayed two nights at the Red Dragon. Arrived to a warm welcome shown to our room which was immaculate, everything about it was to a high standard. Ate there the first evening food and service was excellent. Contrary to other reviews the bar staff were friendly and the whole place had a warm homely feel. Breakfast menu plenty of choice... More

The food here was great. There were four of us in our party and we all had something different and everyone enjoyed what they chose. I had the lamb cutlets served with a delicious mint mash potato. We sat next to the big roaring fire and soon warmed up from the rather cold weather outside. Will definitely return next time... More

Lovely pub, roaring fire, cosy atmosphere............... This was then completely destroyed by a rude and ignorant bar person/waitress. We ordered our drinks at the bar and the lady was nice and polite. We then sat for 5 minutes before ordering our food with a different girl (who was by far the youngest person working there) maybe this is why she... More

Tried the Sunday lunch for the first time and was unfortunately a little disappointed. There was no fire lit & despite sitting well away from the door, I was so cold that I didn't take my coat off. The service was prompt although lacked a friendly vibe. The starters were really tasty and the Sunday lunch contained a good range... More
