Independent, Grade-II listed pub and inn, serving food and drink to soothe the soul, and luxuriously comfortable rooms in Odiham, Hampshire

 Welcome to The Red Lion Pub, Inn & Dining. Located in the market town of historic Odiham, we are an independently owned Grade-II listed pub and inn, with 7 luxuriously comfortable boutique hotel rooms. We offer seasonal British classics that feed the soul, a unique selection of premium drinks, and quality service... always.

Easy to reach, we are just minutes from the M3 motorway, Junction 5 near Hook and Basingstoke. The rustic beams tell many historical tales, whilst the relaxed, unpretentious design and atmosphere align with today's high expectations. Ideal for a great pint of craft beer, deliciously fresh seasonal Hampshire fare, and a dreamy overnight escape.

Car parking is available both on the high street and at Deer Park View Car Park, which provides easy access to the rear entrance of the pub.

A surprisingly good place
"We ended up here by accident as the pub we planned to go to was full - and how lucky we were - we were greeted and sat at a nice booth. The food here was excellent - we all had something different, we started with the bread - lovely olive oil and good quality balsamic - then followed with chili chicken skewers, pie, fish cake and the sea bass and all were lovely. We finished up with the cheesecake desert with berries and it was all very tasty. Service was great we were never rushed and will come back again next time we are visiting Odiham,"

What a great pub!

"Four of us visited The Red Lion for lunch to celebrate my birthday. As soon as you walk in you realise what a lot of care has gone into preserving this lovely old building whilst, at the same time, making it look comfortable and appealing.

We were served by the very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable lady manager assisted by a very new server who was on her first day working in the pub. Naturally, she was nervous but she did an excellent job and when unsure about how to respond to a question or request she quietly asked the manager for advice.

We ate a three course lunch and the standard of each course was truly excellent. Goat's cheese or crispy calamari starters, lamb pie, barnsley chop and sausage and mash for mains and a wonderful rhubarb crumble and custard for pudding.

It's not often that we leave a pub truly happy and satisfied, but today we all felt the same. It was faultless. Congratulations to all of the staff!"

A great little find!
"We had a delightful stay at The Red Lion in Odiham. We were given a cosy room which was tastefully designed, the bedding was crisp and fresh and the shower was fabulous! Supper was delicious and we loved the relaxed atmosphere. The waiting staff at supper, and then breakfast, were all attentive, informed about the food and friendly. We hope to come back for a little break before too long as we well rested and had a wonderful night away, thank you!"
