Will Larter left this review about The Red Lion

Well signed from the B4558 which bypasses the village, the Red Lion is built slightly skewiff to the road, with a few bench tables and a children's play area in front, and a small car park across the road. Once inside there's a decent sized bar with stools; there's another room to the right but I didn't look into it. On the bar were three hand pumps (see photo); numerous pump clips adorn the ceiling. The pub is in the Good Beer Guide. Locals were friendly and chatty, and one proposed a route change for the final stretch of my cycle ride to Talybont reservoir which saw me unexpectedly cycling along the canal towpath instead of the B4558; up to that point I hadn't even known there was a canal hereabouts. My pint of Rhymney Hobby Horse was just what I needed after the long ride through to Brynmawr and over the moors.

Quinno _ left this review about Red Lion Hotel

Takes a bit of finding, this one. A large and long building set back from the road with a nice front seating area. Three ales on: Rhymney (decent), Wye Valley Bitter (so-so) and Kelham Island plus a proper cider (Black Dragon). Service perfunctory. Two-roomed interior was modern and comfortable if fairly unremarkable; the larger left room which contained the bar had some duck egg walls, footy on the TV and old pump clips slowly taking over ceiling. Pool, darts and quizzer in smaller right-hand room. A separate dining room was closed. Kids play area located in the decent rear garden. It’s not a bad place given the context of the local area but I’d be more inclined to stick with the Star in Talybont-on-Usk for an extra pint - more character.
