Welcome to The Red Lion Hotel!

Important Notice - The Red Lion Hotel is now closed

The Red Lion Hotel closed it's doors for the last time on Saturday 21st October 2017.


Jennie and Paul would like to thank everyone who has supported them and to thank everyone who managed to come to our "Leaving Party" on Saturday 30th September 2017 and our "Everything Must Go" party on Saturday 21st October 2017.


As most of our regulars know, we have continued to run the hotel 6 months after the end of our lease in the hope of an uninterrupted transistion to new owners, but unfortunately that wasn't to be. At present there are no immediate signs when the hotel will re-open under new ownership.


We would like to thank everyone who came on the last night, drank the bar dry, and bought up anything that was left!


We would also like to say a big thank you to Angie, Charlie, Julia, and Dan who helped with the cleaning, and to Pete and Tony who helped with maintenance and moving the remaining furniture into storage!


We hope Oakford will have it's pub open again in the near future!




Jennie & Paul.
