COVID-19 - we are reopening Sunday 5 July - 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.
