The Red Lion!


Important announcement

To all our loyal customers,

It is with great sadness that we inform you that the Ersser family will be leaving the Red Lion after 15 happy years.

Our lease agreement with Punch (the owner of the freehold from whom we currently lease the pub) came to an end in October 2019. After a period of discussion, unfortunately Punch has decided not to renew our lease and instead to run the pub as a managed house. We will be very sad to say goodbye, but we wish Punch the best in taking the pub forward. It is the warm and friendly Shamley Green community that makes the Red Lion what it is, and Punch will be working hard to ensure that the pub continues to be the centre of that community.

We would like to thank all of you for your support and custom over the years and we wish you all the very best for the future. Our last day at the pub will be Sunday 16th August and we hope to see as many of you as possible before then.

With very best wishes,

Debbie, Annabel and Chris Ersser

COVID-19 - we are open three days a week - please read below

In light of the Government’s latest guidance in relation to the hospitality sector, we are getting ready to welcome our customers back to the Red Lion.


We are working hard to ensure we can provide a safe and secure place for our customers and staff and this will necessitate a few changes to the Red Lion we all know and love. We will help you navigate this “new normal” when you arrive but there are just a few things we’d like you to note before visiting:


  1. Our capacity has, of course, been reduced so please book to ensure we can accommodate you/you are not disappointed on arrival;

  2. Our opening hours will be significantly reduced. We are currently open for the following dates and times:

    • Monday to Thursday: Closed

    • Friday: 12:00 - 22:00 (food lunch 12:00 - 14:30 and evening 18:30 - 21:00).

    • Saturday: 12:00 - 22:00 (food lunch 12:00 - 15:00 and evening 18:30 - 21:00).

    • Sunday: 12:00 - 20:00 (food lunch only 12:00 - 15:00).

  3. Per the Government’s guidance, no more than two households can sit at any one table and separate households will need to maintain social distancing at all times;

  4. In an effort to keep our staff as safe as possible, we will have fewer members of staff working at any one time;

  5. One of the many steps we are taking to ensure your safety is to implement a one-way system throughout the pub – all you need to know before arrival is that you must only enter the pub through the front door;

  6. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept cash payments for the time being - debit or credit card only; and

  7. Perhaps most importantly, please do not visit if you have any symptoms of COVID-19 including, but not limited to, a fever, a cough or a change in sense of taste and/or smell.


We would also ask you to remember that this is uncharted territory for us too and to be patience in relation to any delays.

As always, the safety and well being of our guests and staff remains our utmost priority. Please let us know if you have any queries about our COVID-19 policy.

The Red Lion combines traditional country pub with fine dining

Our menu selection caters for all tastes from traditional
pub favourites to unique special dishes. Our extensive
wine list allows you to match your magnificent meal
with the perfect wine.

We have two open fires for the winter and outdoor dining, with views
of Sunday cricket in summer, ensuring your visit is special all year round.
We have room for dogs and children and cater for events and functions
of all sizes.
