The Red Lion Information


** FREE PARKING ** The 15 rooms at the Red Lion are all comfortably appointed and provide the perfect environment with its own private garden with fish pond and large lawns for a relaxing stay in York, whether for business or pleasure. The Red Lion offers a superb selection of mouth-watering dishes served in the bar or restaurant. The menu can be found on our website - It does change on a regular basis. While we are just yards away from a Park & Ride bus service into town that makes travel so much easier. At the moment it have been commandeered by the NHS and is being used as a COVID TESTING Station. However, there is another Park & Ride service just a few mins drive away at Rawcliffe. In addition to being 3 miles from York city centre, the Red Lion is well placed for many other interesting locations and activities including Castle Howard, which has been in the worlds top 10 Greatest Mansions and setting for Pride & Prejudice as well as the Thorn-birds. Harrogate is also only 20 mins away for great shopping and the conference centre. There are also local activities such as Fishing, Microlights, Gliders, Flying, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Quad Biking, Paint Balling and much more. We are also on the Tour De France & The Way Of The Roses cycle routes We are located just alongside the A59 (Boroughbridge Road) and have a large Free Car Park. Our car Park entrance is entered off Hodgson Lane.

** FREE PARKING ** The Red Lion is owned and run by Mark & Jean Lee who are very much hands on to make your stay the best we we can. Having spent over 30 years in the licensed trade Mark as a wealth of experience. Making sure the food is alway quality food using local suppliers for fresh produce. Jean makes sure that the rooms are clean, warm and ready for you to enjoy your visit. The team of staff are friendly and helpful and as the many reviews would confirm always attentive without being intrusive. ** FREE PARKING **
