Welcome to The Red Lion Hotel!

Important Notice

Jennie and Paul would like to thank everyone who has supported us at the Red Lion Hotel over nearly 3 years, and to thank everyone who managed to come to our Leaving Party on Saturday 30th September 2017.


We will be closing the doors on Sunday 22nd October 2017 and until then we are open for normal business.  As most of our regulars know, we have continued to run the hotel 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.


Please continue to visit until we leave!  




Jennie & Paul.
