Cotswold country inn with rooms

Sarah & Lisa welcome you to The Red Lion. Our cosy country inn is nestled in the heart of the Cotswold village of Long Compton, a place steeped in history and surrounded by beautiful countryside. 

We’re just a few miles from popular Cotswold tourist destinations, including Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Norton, and all the attractions in Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Cheltenham are within an hour’s drive, but our corner of the Cotswolds has a more peaceful, laid-back character.


Eat, drink, laugh, sleep

Whether you’re looking for a traditional Cotswold pub to enjoy a local ale by the fireside, a cosy spot for morning coffee, or somewhere special to spend a romantic weekend away, our contemporary styled Grade II listed inn retains all the charm and character of days gone by.

For four legs and little legs

We have a popular children’s menu, an outdoor play area and activity sheets for kids, and our bar and restaurant are dog-friendly throughout (as are all seven of our rooms), so our guests who choose to visit The Red Lion with the whole family can be assured of a warm welcome for all.

Absolutely excellent experience, thank you

"Last minute break away with our dogs. The staff went above & beyond to welcome us to The Red Lion. Superb food, we stayed in a well-equipped room named ‘Bella’, the decor throughout the pub is gorgeous; classy yet understated with some really beautiful touches. Our dogs were made so welcome too. A treat from booking to check out!" - Liz B, Tripadvisor
