Welcome to The Red Lion at Long Compton - a country inn with rooms!
Real ales, fine wines, superb food and a warm welcome await you from your hosts Sarah and Lisa at The Red Lion.
Originally built as a coaching inn in 1748, this Grade II listed free house is located in the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. With tales of witches in the village and a nearby prehistoric stone circle (the Roll Right Stones), there is as much of interest to the historian as there is the tourist.
Eat in the bar with its settles and inglenook fireplace, or the adjoining restaurant area, choosing from the seasonal menu or daily specials blackboard. Options range from a sandwich of crayfish, rocket and lemon mayonnaise on ciabatta to rack of lamb with crushed black olive and herb crust, grilled aubergine and provencale sauce. Other favourites include cod and chips served on the Red Lion ‘Times’ Newspaper, and a steak and Hook Norton pie, washed down with real ale or your choice from a carefully selected wine list.
The delightful individually styled five en suite bedrooms have Egyptian cotton bed linen, luxury toiletries and fluffy towels, tea and coffee making facilities, flat screen televisions and hairdryers.
Your comfort and relaxation is of the highest importance. Whether staying with us for a romantic weekend, holiday in the Cotswolds or business, our beautiful inn is your perfect retreat!
The Red Lion has seen many changes over the years, yet still retains the charm and character of a Cotswold country pub. Since taking over as managers, together with our staff, we have created a unique ambience with a smart, contemporary feel.
The traditional Cotswold pub interior retains the old world atmosphere with oak beams, log fires and gleaming wood, but has a contemporary vibe with comfy leather armchairs.
