The Red Lion Blewbury is alive and well. All customers welcome to ‘sniff the whiff’ of summer ale and enjoy the sizzle of simple locally produced pub grub. Stay over for a sense of history and fun at The Red Lion.

For over 200 years, a fun watering hole to stay, drink and be jolly.


To drink the best beers, locally brewed ales and fine wines.  The Red Lion retains a traditional pub bar for enjoying a foaming ale or the dog friendly garden. 


Without fuss and a few surprises, to eat simple wholesome locally sourced traditional pub food. 


In 1895 The Red Lion was described by Joseph Green as “An inn to accommodate commercials, cyclists with good stabling.  Today it offers four comfortable bedroom suites for business trips and staycations


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’.


The Red Lion enjoys a rural village garden setting ideal for families and friends to reunite. Celebrate a wedding, a birthday or a corporate occasion in a tranquil setting. Hire a tea party tent or a marquee for a special private event.
