Stay in a modern hotel in a historic setting 

Built originally as a coaching inn, the Grade II listed Red Lion has been offering weary travellers comfortable beds and hearty meals since 1736. Today you’ll find a modern hotel that welcomes single travellers, couples, families and friends with a great selection of superior rooms. 

When you stay at the Red Lion, you can rest your head in a large comfy bed with plump pillows and a fluffy duvet. You’ll have your own private en-suite bathroom, tea and coffee-making facilities for that all important brew in the morning, and free Wi-Fi so you can stay connected throughout your stay. You’ll also find a sense of history throughout the hotel with plenty of tasteful touches, including oak beams, flagstone floors, exposed brickwork and period furniture. 

If you’re travelling with your pooch in tow, you can take advantage of one of the rooms at the Red Lion if you book in advance. And who wouldn’t want to bring their dog to such a great location? A stay at the Red Lion Hotel will see you surrounded by sights and attractions. Simply step outside the hotel and you can explore picturesque Fareham on foot. And if you fancy doing a little travelling during your stay, you can visit Portsmouth, head to Arundel Castle and Gardens, explore the coast, or take a trip across to the Isle of White.

The charming pub and restaurant offers a great place to relax in a traditional setting, while the bar is well stocked and there’s even a beautiful pub garden outside too. When it comes time to eat, you can tuck in to generous portions of classic pub cuisine at great prices, whether you’re after lunch or dinner.
