About Us

A few words about us

Let us introduce ourselves

A warm welcome from all of us at the ‘The Red Lion’.

Real ale, good food and a warm welcome is central to everything we do.

A place to eat, a place to drink

A place to relax…

We stock a wide selection of real ales. Our selection includes stouts, milds, Timothy Taylors, Hawkshead and plenty of other guest beers. To keep up to date with what is on the bar, follow us on ‘Real ale finder’

Orchard Pig, San Miguel, Leffe and Fruli are some of our well loved choices always available.

And with a real log fire for cold winter days, and a beer garden for the sunny ones, focused food nights and live music, there is something for everyone.
