A BIT OF HISTORY

For too long The Red Lion has been a well kept secret. Tucked away in a secluded village setting this full of fun country pub is steeped in history all of it’s own making.

Brimming with close to 250 years of nostalgic character this is the disarmingly charming village pub of a bygone era. Now undergoing a phased home grown revival with a big nod to the past and a new formula for the future. With a new cellar system already installed and a wider selection of the finest ales on offer to compliment a refined menu of simple good quality traditional food,
 
The Red Lion is already starting to raise awareness. With it’s stretched festival tent, the garden will become the main feature of attraction and appeal this summer. Lookout for an upgrade to the bedroom suites appropriately themed on Kenneth Graham’s ‘The Wind and The Willows’.
