Enjoy a home from home in this stunning period hotel

You'll see and experience the Red Lion's history in its wonderful stone exterior and tastefully decorated interior. The sense of its past is in every exposed oak beam and characterful nook and cranny in the rooms as well as in the pub and restaurant.

Yet although it feels like you're staying in a slice of history at the Red Lion, Adderbury, you'll also enjoy a truly modern hotel experience. There are 13 rooms in the hotel, all of which have been recently refurbished. You'll find a large, comfy bed in each, plus an en-suite bathroom and all the mod-cons you need for an enjoyable stay, whether you want a coffee in the morning or have to catch up online. As it's a period property, some of the rooms have steep stairs - if you need a room with minimal stairs to climb, just let the hotel know before you book.

As well as having meeting space that can accommodate 30 guests, the Red Lion also welcomes well-behaved dogs with open arms. If you're travelling with your dog or you just want to get out and explore the local area there are some beautiful countryside walks in the vicinity of the hotel. You can also enjoy a range of cultural and historical sites with the Red Lion as your base, whether you want to take a trip into Oxford, visit stunning Blenheim Palace, head to the beautiful Cotswolds or enjoy medieval Warwick Castle.

Head down to the country pub and restaurant for delicious pub classics

A rustic inn experience wouldn't be complete without a traditional country pub, and that's exactly what you'll find at the Red Lion. Head down from your room for a pint of real ale or a glass of wine in a charming, relaxing setting. You can drink indoors or wander outside into the beer garden if the weather's looking good.

The restaurant serves up filling portions of classic British cuisine and pub fayre at great prices. Take your pick from expertly cooked steaks, hand-battered fish and chips, hand-made pies, and plenty more. The hotel also serves breakfast to guests every morning, with a selection of cooked and continental options to choose from.
