    Cosy Country Inn

    Just a few miles from the historic city of Lincoln, this inn provides a relaxing and comfortable refuge after tackling the city's Steep Hill; never was a street so aptly named. Accommodation is within a separate stone built block. We ate out, but understood from other guests that the bar meals were tasty and filling; breakfast was excellent and the hosts, most welcoming.

    Pub with character and excellent food

    We stayed for 2 nights in accommodation opposite the pub. Large comfortable rooms. Breakfast served in the pub. Great atmosphere in the pub with good draught beer. Really tasty food with generous portions. Beware old reviews and photos. Major upgrades are being made by new owners. Highly recommend. Easy run into Lincoln for sightseeing.

  • 6.0.Good


    Advised the owners only acquired the B&B 3 weeks prior to my stay was evident. No menu for the evening meal, choice from a blackboard with limited basic meals. Placement settings for dining was basic, no condiments, cutlery just thrown on the table. Breakfast order was taken the night before, breakfast options were not provided just full English. Again place settings were basic, again no condiments. No cereal options provided only full english.

    Good food

    Set in a lovely village approx 20 mins from Lincoln, food is excellent, especially the English breakfast and the staff were friendly. The lodges are separate from the public house and look very smart however some work looks set to start and outside our lodge there was no kerb appeal. The lodge was roomy with a spacious bathroom and some work was needed (broken glass in window), unfortunately we did have a very worn out towel but did request a new one and was changed, disappointedly the daily room service didn't happen but otherwise happy with the accommodation. Wifi is hit and miss. Would stay again if in area.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Not good at all

    I had booked to stay at the red lion for two nights with my family to see friends who live in the area. I was called at around 2pm by a member of staff at the red lion to be told my room had been double booked, being the day of check in this caused quite some panic and stress for me and my family. I booked another room luckily at a travel lodge just outside of town. I called the red lion to discuss the options and find out why this had happened, spoke to a member of staff who was very rude. He said that there was no trace of my booking and that the hotel does not use, despite me being phoned by another member of staff. He then said he would return my call. Once phoning back he said there had a been a mistake and that in fact they can now offer me a room. Safe to say I didnt take up this offer. I cannot speak for the facilities of the red lion but their services are below expectations and the staff appear incompetent I wont be booking to stay here again and would advise you to book with caution.
