The Red Lion Inn
We love It and try to eat here anytime we are in town
Great meal as usual except that the stuffing was served cold. Our waitress was not particularly attentive or warm -- a departure from our usual experiences at the Red Lion Inn. Ambiance was lovely as always.

Very pleasant experience. Lovely setting; very good food and very pleasant attentive service. We would definitely go back!!
We usually love The Red Lion, but we were disappointed on this last outing. My 12-year-old Macallan Scotch (a brand with which I'm quite familiar) didn't taste like a Macallan; it was uncharacteristically rough, making me suspect that I had been given a cheaper brand. No rose wine was available for our dinner guest (the waiter explained that they used to serve a rose that came from a box, but had stopped doing so). My husband's soup was lukewarm, and his lamb meatloaf was very underdone. He sent the meatloaf back, and while it was returned better cooked, it didn't taste very good. (Our guest and I had the turkey, and it was good.) Our waiter forgot the bread he had promised - normally we'd find that understandable, but there were very few people there (it was a Monday night). He seemed more interested in chatting with the young ladies at a nearby table. The bigger gaffe was his removing my fork from my appetizer salad and placing it back on the table, for use with my main course. I expect better from a restaurant at this level and hope to see an improvement next time.
Hello, Thank you for your feedback. There is really helpful information in your review and we are addressing with our staff. That being said, I am sorry to hear that we did not meet expectations on your last visit. Considering that it wasn't a very busy night, we should have been more attentive and addressed the issues then. I'd love to invite you back so we can make it right. Call (413) 298-1607 so we can make reservation and rectify. Shira Wilkofsky Restaurant Manager
Wonderful location for celebration dinners. We had a great time.
Celebrated our anniversary and sat at the same table 31 years ago. We always love visiting the Red Lion over the years. It is like an old friend that makes you feel comfortable, with a lot of happy memories and great tradition. An excellent evening!
Christmas present to my girlfriend. Spent the weekend at Red Lion Inn as part of a visit to the Rockwell Museum and had dinner here Saturday night. Wonderful meal and a special Inn. Will be back for both!
I've dined at The Red Lion Inn many times and would normally recommend the restaurant to a friend. However, our experience Saturday night was quite poor. The server (Jorden K.) should not be in the hospitality business. The food was overcooked and dried out. One member in our party ordered a Rusty Nail cocktail which cost $21.00. That seemed very out of line for the restaurant.
We will return but if the next experience is as poor as Saturday night's experience we will dine elsewhere going forward.
Hi Michael, I am glad we were able to connect yesterday and discuss your dining experience! Please email me on your next visit so we can ensure you have a wonderful time! Best, Shira Restaurant Manager
We ate in the Tavern. It was a long holiday weekend and the place was a bit crazy. My burger was delicious, my husband's fish was great. Hot cider hit the spot. The Tavern is always fun, but we prefer it in quieter times.
Wonderful historic inn with old world charm. The setting is the star! Food was above average and menu accommodated vegetarians well. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. Would definitely return.
Delicious food and excellent service. The setting is incredible--so many cool, interesting antiques. The Red Lion Inn somehow manages to be both upscale and incredibly cozy and comfortable at the same time.
We arrived two hours before our reservation and were still able to be seated. Can’t say enough about the gracious service, wonderful ambiance, and outstanding food.
The service and atmosphere were good, and the appetizers were delicious. The two main courses (cod and salmon) were overcooked and lacking flavor. We were very disappointed, considering the high price and reputation.
Love. This. Place. Had dinner here and came back the next morning for breakfast. Outstanding food and service in a charming setting. Highly recommend.
Waitress seemed frazzled and not focusing on table.. forgot who ordered what and forgot to bring food requested...
Food was good but expensive for the value...
Convenient place for meeting with family but noise level was high making conversation difficult...
overall good but has room for improvement...in service and value..
Lovely old-fashioned decor, ambience. Food was great and wait staff excellent. Went out of her way to make sure husband's food choice was gluten-free. Their menu specifies vegetarian and gluten-free dishes.
I just love this place--so old-fashioned New Englandy atmosphere.
This is a classic old Inn with “old school” charm! Great service, delicious food and a fire place with comfy chairs to sit in while you wait to be seated!
Beautifully decorated for Christmas inside and out. Went twice during the holiday for lunch, food very good. Great atmosphere for Christmas, would probably go to the Lion’s Den for more casual at other times.
We made a reservation for the tavern:
- I walked up to the Host station and told them I had made a reservation for the tavern and the response was oh we have room come this way. Did not acknowledge my name or that I had made the effort to reserve - the POINT - to them your website was obviously useless - So when I made a reservation with your site it told me they were basically booked from from 4 to 8 pm and had to make a reservation for 3:45... We were seated in a room with no one else in there and the waiter who came over stammered like he was stressed or nervous. We asked a question at first before anything ...We asked for French Onion Soup and the waiter said it’s not on our menu- I said but you serve it in the dining room and he said Yes- so I asked - can we also have it - he said I will go check... He NEVER came back ... more than 10 minutes later I see him wiping glasses - We LEFT!
I had a special lunch there with friends celebrating 65 years of friendship & the fact we are now all turning 70!
The food, service, ambiance & warmth of this special Inn met all our expectations and more.
Excellent! The four of us enjoyed it very much. We also loved the Christmas decorations throughout the Inn.
Overpriced for poor quality. We had prime rib which was served on top of the mash potatoes leaving them a bloody mess. Soup was warm and dinner was served cold. Rolls were stale although the dining room was busy. Dining room was cold and the harp made conversation at the table diffucult. We won't return
They ran out of food from the menu. It was so tight in there and the waitress must have hit my chair 10 times while walking behind me. The food that we did receive was nothing great. The noise level was horrible! I was very disappointed for the amount of money spent for a meal that was not that great.
Eating at the Red Lion Inn is always a wonderful experience. The food and service are always excellent. The ambience is so cozy and makes for a great experience. We live a four-hour drive away from Stockbridge but go up to that area several times a year and always include dinner or lunch at the Red Lion Inn.
All was fine except for lunch of soup, sandwiches, chicken pie 2 beers and 2 wines the price for the 4 of us was over $200. Excluding tip 😕 Question doing this again
Outstanding as usual. Food was delicious, service was impeccable and atmosphere delightful.
Great place to eat and celebrate with friends, never feel rushed.
Chicken pot pie is best I have ever had.
The Red Lion In never disappoints. From the delicious food to the beautiful decor to the harpist playing soft music in the background, the entire experience was memorable.
Lovely relaxing luncheon, enjoying friendship amidst the beautiful holiday holiday decor
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. The food was amazing. I look forward to returning there to try more dishes. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. The Red Lion is better than ever!
The food was mediocre at best. It took over an hour to get our food. Hostesses where rude. Server was pleasant and attentive. He kept us updated on the progress of our order.
yes but not with the server i had on 12/6/19---she was horrible to the point we were going to cancel for 12/7/19 this time all was good the waiter was interested un-like ms. crabby pants the night before -food was great and we enjoyed ourselves, even going in with alot of trepidation ----you need another bar-tender in the pub before the one you have now quits---too overwhelmed
Gorgeously decorated for Christmas! Only a few complaints:
- The French Dip sandwich only came with 2 steak-style fries...thought that was a bit strange and didn't seem like nearly enough.
-I had asked for a side of honey mustard and the waitress never brought it.
-We ended the meal with 2 desserts. The one slice of apple pie was $12 and extremely dry.
Overall, was very good but definitely some area for improvement!
I was disappointed in our dining experience at the Red Lion Inn. Everything was mediocre at best. The food was average and expensive for the quality. My simple Hamburg was $18, while my frien's French dip sandwich was $21. They are not the RLI from the past. We had looked forward to a excellent holiday meal but that did not occur. The cat was the highlight.
It was a busy Holiday weekend in Stockbridge, but the Red Lion seated us right on time and service was excellent. The menu seemed a bit limited but that may have been because they knew it was going to be a busy weekend. The food was good, but not outstanding. It was very noisy, with a Christmas concert going on and a lot of people milling around in the lobby, so it was hard to hear the waitress and hard to have a conversation. But it was still a nice experience, and the Red Lion remains one of my favorite places to eat.
Our server was not into being helpful. Felt we were a bother to her. Had to ask for a drink. Never asked if we wanted seconds and was glad to see us gone! Next night the server was wonderful! Need another bar tender in pub. The wait was truly ridiculous!
Been here many times. Never disappoints. Good choices for a vegetarian. Love the service and the ambiance.
Started with a great clam chowder. Creamy and flavorful. Dining partner had the butternut bisque which was quite delightful too. The filet of beef was excellent. Interesting vegetarian selection stuffed delicata squash. Service was amazing. For dessert try the warm brown sugar cake.
Always love the Red Lion. Food is quite good, and the inn is one of our favorite spots to spend an evening.
Another lovely lunch in the tavern. We shared the fish and chips and a clam chowder. Perfect for 2. And the hot cider hit the spot on a nasty day.
An enjoyable dinner. Our waiter was excellent! The food was delicious. Will definitely return.
