Anniversary Weekend
Can not fault the Red Lion at all, booked to stay for our wedding anniversary and we couldn't have asked for anything better. On arrival the staff were friendly and helpful and I could see that they had ensured procedures were followed with respect to maintaining our safety. The room exceeded expectations, even better than the pictures depicted. Plenty of space and the room was clean and tidy ready for our arrival. We booked to have the breakfast and the food was wonderful and more than I could manage, we didn't partake in the main menu but I have no doubt that the food will meet the same exceptional standard as breakfast had been. I would highly recommend a stay at the Red Lion, ideally placed if you want to explore the countryside that Derbyshire has to offer or perfect if you just want a couple of days away.

Liked: Cleanliness
The Red Lion holds a late licence which was not stated and we had two very disturbed nights including the outside light shinning through the thin curtains we had to check out early, the room was not very warm and as usual the lighting and mirrors were nowhere near each other . It was very clean and the food was good with a lovely real fire in the pub All in all very disappointed.
