Now that autumn has officially arrived, be the smug one this year and get your festive party date in the diary to celebrate with friends.

The ‘C’ word is already being thrown around and supermarkets have their festive aisle in place, filled with selection boxes and mammoth jars of peanuts,… and we’re still only in September!

Whilst it’s a bit too early to bulk-buy mince pies (as they’ll be out of date before December!), it’s never too early to take charge of the social calendar and book ahead for your festive celebrations, whether with work colleagues, friends or family; and where better to book than here at The Red Lion, in Odiham.

Mistletoe and (mulled) wine will be flowing a ‘plenty from late November. Key ingredients for the perfect festive night at The Red Lion include our merry staff, festive décor and a unique array of local and international brands including festive warm cider, artisan gins, craft beers, ales and cocktails.

Festive gift vouchers

If you’re a lover of organisation and like to plan early, leave the novelty socks alone this year and think outside the box when it comes to stocking fillers and gifts. Wouldn’t a ’round of drinks’, a ‘meal’ or ‘stay’ at their favourite pub be a great idea… and easily achieved with our gift vouchers (available to purchase at all our sister pubs or by calling our Head Office). Our gift vouchers can be used in any of our pubs on all food, drink and accommodation (at The Red Lion, Odiham and The Stag on the River, Eashing).
