Brilliantly kept ale, classic pub food, a cracking quiz and a jolly landlord!

Grade 2 listed with wooden beams, low ceilings and a central island bar, there has been a pub on this site since 1750. All that is missing from the good old days is the outside toilets, which have been converted into our gorgeous conservatory, look hard enough and you can still see some of the old tiles.

Modern classics with a twist

The Old Red Lion is a proper pub – brilliantly kept ale, classic pub food, a cracking quiz and a jolly landlord! Expect a decent portion when dining, we believe in good honest food, no foams or smears in this pub!

Think towering burgers, everyone's favourite, fish and chips, a charcuterie board for the sharers and a brilliant selection of vegan and vegetarian friendly meals. Sundays are all about Yorkshire puddings with lashings of gravy.

Take a look at our main menu and Sunday menu and book your table for a slap up meal, every day of the week, here at the Old Red Lion.
