Our big news is that we recently found out that we have an entry in the
CAMRA Good Beer Guide 2009 published this month. Out of 6,000 pubs in
Britain only 4,500 make it into the guide so we are delighted. If you
haven't been to the pub since we took it over why not pop in to see why
the mystery visitors from CAMRA thought we deserved an entry.
Despite the weather we have had a busy summer at the Red Lion. Our
special event evenings have been really well supported, thank you to
everyone who came. The Pudding Night and Starters Night seemed
especially popular so we are repeating them in the autumn. (See diary
dates below) We expect to be fully booked for these evening so ring to
book your table.
We are also still having regular charity quiz nights on the last Monday
of the month. These are generally quite busy and raise a significant
amount of money for the charity so if you would like to host one for
your favourite charity, do give me a ring. Jazz Jam (live Jazz music) is
on the 1st Sunday of the month and is a lovely, relaxing way to end the
We have now introduced our winter menu - you can see it on the web site www.redlion.biz .
We are still trying to use local produce as much as possible (thanks
for all the courgettes, salad leaves etc over the summer) and have
included some traditional, old favourite comfort foods like casseroles,
stews and dumplings and steamed puddings!
Christmas Bookings - we already have several large bookings for our
Christmas menu so if you are organising a Christmas party and want a
particular date please ring as soon as possible.
By the time you read this we should have installed our wood burning
stove in the inglenook fireplace. Come in and enjoy it while sampling
our delicious real ales, wines coffees and meals.
