Salcombe Distillery

Inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe and its shipbuilding heritage, Salcombe Distilling Company creates exceptional, multi-award-winning gin at its waterside distillery, one of the world’s only distilleries directly accessible by boat. After a long walk in the Hampshire countryside, return to The Red Lion and sit out the front, as the sun starts its descent, sipping on the blush pink Provence-inspired Salcombe Rose Saint Marie gin. In our humble opinion, this is best served over ice with Double Dutch Tonic, a freshly hulled strawberry and lemon peel, as you immerse yourself amongst the buzz of Odiham’s high street.

Wessex Distillery

Based in the beautiful village of Wessex in Surrey, just 35 minutes from Odiham, this family-owned craft distillery, headed up by brother and sister, their premium ingredients come straight from the English countryside, and distilled in their own Surrey-Hills copper distillery. We’ll be stocking four of their delicious flavoured gins, including their London Dry, Gooseberry & Elderflower, Sloe, and Sicilian Lemon & Ginger.  The sloe gin is simply divine when topped with prosecco, especially after a day out exploring the local villages in and around Hampshire and Surrey, including the now famous picturesque village of Shere where The Holiday was filmed.

Ripping Yarns

Yet another family-owned, cracking Surrey Hills producer from Godalming. Ripping Yarns is an award-winning rum made completely from scratch using the finest cane sugar molasses. From ‘molasses to glass,’ as they like to say, this inspiring family cover the whole rum-making process. Launched in late 2020 with their Golden Spiced Rum, they soon followed this with their Premium Silver Rum… both are delicious on the rocks, or, as we like to enjoy it when the sun shines, paired with a fiery ginger beer. If you love rum, you simply have to give this product a try. They are in the final development stages of their upcoming Dark Rum and Fruit Infused Rum too… we are super excited!

We will also be introducing some delicious Belgian beers to our rotating kegs, so each month there will be something different for you to enjoy.

With all these delicious new additions coming to our already brimming bar, it’s time to settle down to enjoy some incredible gastro-dining without the pretentious frills; simply put, we create gloriously flavoursome dishes, using best-in-quality ingredients, to create seasonal winning menus.
