Due to covid we had cancelled our wedding twice. After awhile we decided that we would get married at the registry office on New Years Eve, and this is where we had experienced issue with locating a reception due to it being New Years Eve and that majority of places would be holding some NYE events. We visited the Red lion to review and were delighted with the set up. It had been refurbed prior to Covid and was exactly what we were looking for. Plenty of space, lighting was good, and Jay Owens whom I dealt with from the Red Lion was so professional and co-operative, nothing was to much trouble. We used Lemonstone catering which is their caters and the food was amazing, served on time, hot and again nothing to much trouble, we were able to leave this all in their capable hands and enjoy the day. I would recommend this venue any day and wish I could do it all again.
