Superb venue. Gemma and the team are first class, listen to what you want and deliver exactly that. Very flexible with a wide range of meals to choose from, including vegetarian, vegan and children. Rooms on site which are lovely with a breakfast included at special rates for guests. A fantastic day start to finish.

Our perfect day!
Venue Service

By Jack and Wallace Bailey, on 01 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Aug 2018

From the beginning the process was made very easy as gemma was very helpful and tailored everything to exactly as we wanted. You can pick and choose how you want your day to be without being forced to stick to packages, from the layout of the room to the food on your plate they are flexible in every aspect. The chef is top quality providing meals we asked for that are not on the menu and also providing a vegan option for a guest at short notice. You will struggle to find a better venue at such reasonable prices, they really do go out of their way to make your day special. Being a hotel it is also perfect for all guests as they offer a very competitive room rate inc breakfast and late check out.... and the bridal suite is great! We can't thank Gemma and all the team at atherstone red lion enough, the happiest day of our lives :)

From the first instance of booking our wedding at the Atherstone Red Lion Hotel I new we made the right venue choice. Both Trudy and Gemma have been fantastic, so understanding and helpful nothing was ever too much trouble. Our day there was everything we ever wanted and more, the food was amazing the venue was beautiful. Everything went to plan there is nothing I would change. Highly recommend.

White wedding 19th Aug 17
Venue Service

By Vicki and Matthew White, on 22 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

We wanted a humble, affordable, yet still a special wedding, and the red lion provided us with just that. The staff have been lovely, and on the ball from day 1 of booking, right up until after the wedding. I felt a lot of stress was taken off my shoulders because the staff really understood what we wanted, and came through. We had a wedding breakfast choosing dining experience for free, which was awesome. We had the bridal suite for the night which was perfect. Even breakfast in the morning, and a meal for two as a gift. They took into consideration my son, who is in a wheelchair, and catered for him throughout. The rooms were perfectly dressed, the atmosphere was elegant, and they made it feel personal. The ceremony was complimented on by all our family, and friends. It felt so romantic to us. The food was divine, served beautifully. I really couldn't complain about anything. It was the perfect day, and felt humble, yet magical. We can't thank them enough.

Emma and Tony's wedding June 2017
Venue Service

By Emma and Tony Wood, on 11 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2017

We recently got married here. We were looking for something affordable and somewhere that could cater for our numbers. From the moment we met Trudy nothing was too much trouble. She accommodated everything we asked for even changing from buffet meal to a formal sit down breakfast 7 months before the wedding. We went to their wedding Fayre and met their suppliers for lit backdrop curtain and table dressings etc. We had the chance before the wedding for food tasting and the quality was amazing even the chef came out to make sure everything was okay. On the day Gemma and her team did an amazing job? They made sure everyone was were they should be and that everything ran smoothly. I can't thank the team enough for making our day so special for us. We had an amazing time all down to the team at this hotel. Thank you.

Renewal meal
Venue Service

By Catherine and Robert Booton, on 22 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

We booked the Atherstone Red Lion for the venue for the meal following our renewal of vows service that celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary. We had around 25 guests and used the library. From the initial meeting through to the evening itself, we found the staff and management easy to deal with, full of helpful ideas and keen to make it an evening to remember. We had a lovely evening and overnight stay and received nothing but compliments from our guests for the food, service and ambiance of the red lion. We would definitely recommend it as a venue. We have visited for meals and evenings out both before and since and always enjoyed it. Thank you.

We got married here in 2014. All I can say is WOW!!! The lady who spoke with us from day one were truly fantastic and could not help more. Nothing was ever too much trouble for them - they made us feel like number one! Looking back, we have no regrets and If we could do it all again We would not change a thing! We also need to return soon for a meal & a stay because everytime we drive by I get butterflies and to bring wonderful memories back by stepping foot back there would be beautiful. Thankyou all at The Red Lion Hotel, Atherstone. xx
