“The Red Lion Inn is part of a growing trend of affordable pubs with rooms, offering a classy product and high levels of service. It is ideal for a quick country escape and is well located just five minutes from the A303, making it the perfect stop over, if you're heading further South West. The six en suite bedrooms have been tastefully decorated with muted grey hues and all boast super comfy Hypnos beds, crisp Egyptian cotton sheets, White Company toiletries and free wifi. Another nice touch is promoting the art of their friend Jackie Rennie, with paintings throughout the property - indeed if you like one enough, you can make the purchase and take it home. The food is not to be sniffed at either. Most of the ingredients are sourced as locally as possible, and the daily changing menu has garnered many accolades.”

“Why do people love staying in your hotel?
“Times review was right this place is "Cool"
Great pub, excellent food, wonderful rooms and breakfast did not disappoint. It is always difficult to know what you are going to get but rest assured going to the Red Lion is cool. It's professionally run, the food is excellent, the rooms fresh, airy and contemporary and set in a proper quiet English village.

They operate on a 24-hour port to plate policy to ensure all produce is as fresh as can be. Dairy at The Red Lion is supplied by Longman’s Cheese, a family company based in North Cadbury, using Wyke butter and Blackmore Vale free range eggs. We make sure all of our cheese is produced in the South West. Our meat comes from Andrew Barclay Family Butchers of Wincanton from local farms.
