Dog Friendly

Some holidays are just incomplete without your loyal companion coming along as well.

The Red Lion is proud to welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes in our Bar and Lounge. Not only are they welcome in our Restaurant & Bar they also have their very own 'Doggy Bar'! If the 'Doggy Bar' is not to their liking we also have a selection of bottled doggy beverages including a 'Pawsecco' and 'Doggy Beer' for a truly pampered pooch!

If you are staying with us and just cannot stand the thought of leaving your dog at home they are also welcome to indulge in a few nights of luxury with us at only £7.50 per night. On arrival they will have their very own bed, bowl and welcome package! Allowing you all to rest your weary legs and begin your holiday together. Of course the best part of any hotel stay is the breakfast; and we won't leave your four legged friend out, getting their very own sausage at breakfast!

At the Red Lion we are truly Dog Friendly welcoming each furry friend with open arms and ensuring they are all thoroughly spoilt. We are proud to be in partnership with 'The Good Dog Guide' and also 'Dog Friendly'; having even been nominated for the 'Dog Friendliest Pub of the Year 2017' and also 'Dog Friendliest Hotel of the Year 2017'. The Norfolk Coast is the perfect location for you and your pooch with vast beaches and acres of forest.

So show your dog just how much they mean by giving them a relaxing break away. They may run you ragged, wake you up at the crack of dawn and make you regret that white sofa but their unconditional love makes them one of the family, and no holiday is complete without them!
