Staying in a nearby cottage, we visited the Red Lion in the hope of a quick drink and bite to eat. The pub area is very much a "typical" british pub. Memorabilia adorns the walls from what i assume is years of travelling by the owners. The staff were very friendly and the open, roaring, fire in the middle of...

We had not been to the Red Lion for some years but knew there was a faily recent new management there. In fact the new people have been in three years now. We all agreed that the place was very pleasant. the sevice was very good and the food delicious and very plentiful.

The room was quite cold, even with the radiator on. All the rooms are also about 5 meters from a busy trunk road so you have noise day and night. My main disappointment was that breakfast on a weekend is from (I think I remember correctly) 9-10am. I was working and needed to leave well before that time so I...

Had a lovely well cooked and presented meal followed by a few pints of Timothy Taylor's, very pleasant staff. Good nights sleep on a comfortable bed in a very clean and tidy room. Excellent breakfast Great value for money.

Our group were travelling from across Harrogate, Knaresborough, York and surrounding areas so we tend to find ourselves somewhere along the A59 at this time of year for our Christmas meal, much preferring a quieter country pub location on a lunchtime than packed city centre eateries and busy evenings. The Red Lion is just a few mins walk from Poppleton...

Stayed here for a friends 30th birthday. The park and ride for york is five minutes away by car or a ten minute walk away. Our taxi into york was no more than £20 each way maybe less can't remember exact figure. The rooms are very comfy and the added bonus of shower gel shampoo and conditioner

Lovely hotel located very near one of the York Park & Ride car parks. Room was comfortable and well presented. Food and service was great, though we hadn't booked for dinner, so had to wait - would have appreciated if we had been asked if we wanted to book on checking in, especially as I specifically asked about what time...

Hi Nina, Glad to here that the food and service was great. I guess that's why you have to book a table! You are right though you should have been asked if you would like a table when you checked in. i will make sure that the staff ask EVERYONE that question in future. When you decide to come again...

York very busy, city centre hotels either full or very expensive, found this nice hotel just outside York, very reasonably priced, rooms large, warm and clean, evening meal and breakfast excellent, we'd certainly revisit

My partner and I booked this room online thinking that we had booked for ourselves and our 2 year old, when we got to the hotel we were told that we had only put two adults on the booking and that children were not really allowed to stay as the rooms only accommodated 2 people, having realised this my partner...
