We opened The Red Lion just over two years ago. Taking over a unloved and unwanted pub. We recognised the potential in both the pub and most of all the community around it. We set about doing what we love doing (and do best) by trying to create the perfect 'local' . We are a small independent business, run by two lads that love pubs and people. We provide an innovative drinks and food offering with top notch service in a sociable space for community.
Our first year was hard! We used to panic a bit when we had a quiet week (there were a lot of them...) but weren't dismayed and hoped things would pick up once word got round.
The second year was a bit easier - with our reputation growing - but most of all the love we felt from our guests and our community, was overwhelming and made it all very much worth it.
Whats going on?
So where are we now? We are looking for our guest family to pre-buy their experiences with us, simply so that we can see it through the coming months. Cash flow will be the biggest issue for small independent businesses like ours, so this is a way of keeping us afloat through such uncertain times.
No One knows what the future will bring so please only support us if your own business, job or financial situation is secure.
Big shout out to our amazing staff both past, and present: Cameron, Laura, Fiona and of course our very own Tommy Higgs. (and of course Elle the dog) You guys are the reason our guests love The Red Lion. so bloody much. (and we love you guys and the memories you've made).
