Lovely inn with accommodation.

Posted Sep 15, 2014
Pros: The food was very good.
Cons: There was no hairdrier in the room.
The Lion is very convenient for the Bath and West showground which is why we chose it for our 2 night stay.

Good country inn for a night or two

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Pros: Location, accommodation and food were all very good.
Cons: Can't think of anything - we were very pleased that we chose it.
Location: Convenient place to stay en route from London, Midlands of further north on the way to the West Country. Lots of tourist attractions in the area, too
We chose the Lion at Pennard for a one-night stop on a journey from Yorkshire to the West Country. We wanted to visit Cheddar again as well as Wells and Glastonbury and it is conveniently close to all of them. Although the inn is close to a main road, we were not disturbed by traffic noise and, as the accommodation is in a separate building, there was no noise from the bar either. We had a very good evening meal and the breakfast was excellent.

Friendly pub on main road

Posted Aug 3, 2014
Pros: Friendly spacious and relaxed with good food.
Location: Excellent. Glastonbury etc.
The RED Lion is east to find. On main A361. Very good parking at the back. Rooms are separate from the Pub so you can come and go at will. Check in isn't till 6pm when the pub opens and the earliest breakfast is 8.45. Fine for us but unusual. Breakfasts were great with English Breakfast being very well cooked and served. Cereals lacking -NO Meusli!. Other meals were fine - good pub grub. Room comfy enough for the price. BED very good but only a bath and no shower. ENJOYED my baths.

Annexe building next to pub

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: The staff were lovely
Cons: An eye to more luxury in the room. A seat in the room and the bathroom made more modern.
Location: Great for being near to Glastonbury but on a very busy and noisy road.
It was under renovation which we had not been told about. The rooms are very basic and just a few more caring touches would have made all the difference. Breakfast was continental and pretty naff.

poor value for money

Posted Jul 14, 2014
The hotel had two rooms occupied only and had an appearance of neglect. Was told new owners were going to renovate but we had booked at the tail end of the old regime which consists of a pre packed croissant, box of juice, pre constituted pot of porridge, cereal bar and small pack of biscuits as breakfast. We did not know that a cooked breakfast was not included. There was no food the night of our stay on Sunday so we had to drive to another town to eat after a long drive to get there. The toilet cistern took ages to fill so couldn't flush often. Bedding was damp and TV didn't work. Was offered a double room but didn't accept that as a twin room was what was required. Swapped TV from the other room. This was the final night of our holiday and we had travelled the length and breadth of the country with great accommodation and excellent breakfasts. At £70 this represented the poorest value for money of the entire trip.

Very disappointing

Posted May 10, 2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything!
Unable to check in before 6.00pm Accommodation needs total refurbishment. No breakfast supplied other than a few items in a basket in room. Could hear every sound from adjoining rooms. Did not use pub so cannot comment.

Good food with friendly service

Posted May 8, 2014 on Hotels.com
The place is situated out in the country around 3 miles from Glastonbury. Good service and good food in the restaurant/bar. Breakfast is in a basket in your room, placed there the previous afternoon. Bedrooms are in an annexe and while the rooms are clean enough, the building smelled a little musty in places.

Good location, close to Glastonbury & Wells.

Posted Apr 22, 2014
Pros: The location suited our needs and we found the breakfast good. Also the meals served in the bar were very good value.
Location: The Inn is situated approximately 5 minutes drive from Glastonbury, Glastonbury Tor and approximately 20 minutes from Wells.
We found the accommodation basic but clean with friendly, helpful staff. It suited our needs for the short time we stayed, in that it was approximately 5 minutes drive to Glastonbury and approximately 20 minutes drive to Wells which was ideal. Our double room was clean, comfortable and spacious. The Inn is on a main road but it was quiet overnight, we were not disturbed by traffic. The breakfast was very good and plentiful, we ate our evening meal once at the Inn and thought it was excellent, varied choices on the menu at reasonable prices.

Very basic room, good food, served well in a pinch

Posted Oct 9, 2013
Pros: A decent and cheerful pub, with an obliging staff.
Cons: The bare-bones room, though quite clean, was clearly not often occupied. Neither bed lamp had a functioning bulb (but new ones were provided at once).
Location: Glastonbury, Welles (with its incredible cathedral), nearby.
A last resort on a Saturday night when every room in western England seemed to have been booked, the Lion gave us a nice welcome and a bleak but serviceable room in the pub annex. (With glimpses of better ones, already taken.) Supper in the pub was satisfying, breakfast hearty and excellent.
