The Red Lion Hotel is an 18th Century 4-star Inn that stands on the quay alongside Clovelly’s ancient harbour. Each of its 17 beautifully decorated rooms boast a sea view.
The Harbour Restaurant offers fresh lobster, crab, sea bass, herring and other fish from the bay in season. Along with seasonal produce from Clovelly Court Gardens, game from the estate and local meat. The Snug Bar in the evenings is the place where you are likely to be mixing with the locals, listening and sharing their stories.
To wake up to the sights and sounds of Clovelly’s ancient fishing harbour and the sounds of the sea at the Red Lion Hotel is a unique and unforgettable experience.
We had the nicest stay at the Red Lion. We visited with our dogs and stayed in one of the dog friendly rooms which was so spacious and clean you’d never know it had dogs there previously. We even had our own outside door taking us straight out to the front which was so handy when we needed to let the dogs out. The lady at reception (can’t remember her name she was on duty 7th & morning of the 8th) was so friendly and welcoming. We ate at the snug bar and had the seafood sharer which was absolutely delicious. We can’t fault our stay and are already looking at when we can next come.
