We had been to the Red Lion for our anniversary last year and had a lovely time. This year we went to Tanglewood for a concert and stayed at the Inn again as it's close by.

We had been to the Red Lion for our anniversary last year and had a lovely time. This year we went to Tanglewood for a concert and stayed at the Inn again as it's close by. The Inn staff is super friendly and will go out of their way to help you. We also like the different dining venues offered on site from the outside courtyard with the Back Of The Bank bar, the Widows Tavern, a great pub and the main dining room.You can sit on the front porch with a glass of wine that's delivered chilled--a perk on a hot day., and people watch or just zone out for a while. The Red Lion is our favorite place to go and feel relaxed and even spoiled. Read less

We met friends for lunch. A beautiful space. Nice people. The lunch was just perfect. Good food, not rushed and pleasant. We strolled around and then sat out on the porch and enjoyed coffee for several hours. Just a pleasant place to stay

My wife had not been to the Red Lion for many years, so this was a dream of hers. We arrived early for our Father's Day reservation and enjoyed coffee and tea on the porch, which is a good idea! You get to sit and enjoy the passersby while enjoying your beverage and conversation. Our waitstaff was a wonderfully friendly, warm, helpful, and generally great person. The food was delicious and well prepared. Dinner at an expensive restaurant is not usually part of our lifestyle, so we enjoyed lunch and the difference in price! We even got to enjoy a dessert. We would love to return for another fabulous meal. Read less

What is not to love! The porch is just so perfect,the parlor is so cozy, the tavern is quaint, the dining room is classy, but not stuffy, the food is always so good and the service has never been anything but superb. I wish we lived closer!

We stopped for lunch in Stockbridge on our way to Montreal. Being somewhat renowned, we thought we would try The Red Lion. The premises are very elegant and interesting.

We stopped for lunch in Stockbridge on our way to Montreal. Being somewhat renowned, we thought we would try The Red Lion. The premises are very elegant and interesting. But on such a lovely sunny day, the dining room seemed cold and dark. Service was good, but the food, especially for vegetarians, left a lot to be desired. We had something nondescript and unmemorable. Mostly, we remember it costing more than it was worth. I would try a street-side cafe next time and just walk around the Red Lion to look at the building. Please be aware, we have no idea about accommodations, only lunch. Read less
