Stayed here on 29th December as a birthday treat. Good food. Good service Fab room. Breakfast is the best and nothing is too much trouble. Nice walk up the side of the pub which takes you all the way to Grassington

Went for Sunday lunch, what a mistake! No atmosphere and freezing cold! Dinner was cold, roast potatoes frozen not fresh, clearly reheated. Sat at the back near a man cleaning the next room playing music off his phone. Not worth nearly £15 for a dinner, would not recommend.

What a disappointing review. You should have said that you were cold and we would have either of moved you or turned up the heating. We have log fires throughout which are always lit and there are radiators everywhere. Cant do much about the atmosphere ! We will speak to whoever was playing their music, not good. Our potatoes aren't frozen, we cook them fresh. We cant do anything now, what you should have done is complain at the time and we could have tried our best to make your visit an enjoyable one. You would have been asked at the time by the waiter / waitress if everything was ok and if you didn't say then its out of our hands unfortunately ! Yours sincerely Sarah, Vicky, Katy and Eleanor

Many thanks for taking the time to review us. We are all really pleased that you enjoyed your night with us for New Years Eve. We don't always get it right but its much more helpful if a customer tells us at the time that something is not quite as it should be so it gives us the opportunity to put it right, so thank you for this. We do hope to be able to welcome you back and so for our best rates and availability please contact our reservations team on 01756 720204 who are available daily from 8am to 5pm. Kindest regards Sarah, Vicky, Katy and Eleanor

What does the ‘no late access’mean re several rooms?
Thank You for your enquiry. In the Red Lion we do not have a night porter so these rooms are not suitable for late access. The rooms in our BB The Manor House are suitable. If you are unsure give us a ring and we can help you.
