The Red Lion is the 8th pub to join Red Mist Leisure, a family of pubs with a passion for locally sourced, seasonal produce, the perfect pint, and that authentic feeling that makes a British pub so great. Find out what we’re all about in the video…
From Next Door to The Red Lion
The Red Lion was formerly known as Next Door, the restaurant and B&B successfully run by Rachel and James for the past 12 years. When we purchased the site, we were keen to uncover the truth behind this historic building’s past…
The Red Lion is one of the oldest, most popular pub names in the country and with Red Lion Mews being adjacent to the building, we had a feeling that it just might have roots as a pub or inn and an inkling of what its former name may have been.
After conversations with the local historical society and commissioning a historical report, we uncovered some fascinating facts about this building’s rich history… In the 17th century, the building hit a fork in the road and transformed from an ale house, called The Red Lion, to a grocery store. It remained as such until 1997 when it became an inn, where many a weary head has rested since.
With this knowledge, and our passion for the authentic British pub, we are (re-)naming the pub The Red Lion, and are looking forward to restoring this inn back to its roots.
We look forward to welcoming you to your new pub, and will be opening our quick and easy online booking facility in due course.
