Red Lion Christmas Opening

As we head towards the final furlong on 2020, Mouse and I have been looking back at what can only be described as possibly the most surreal year of our lives!! Little did we know this time last year when we were having a daily fight with our solicitors to get their backsides into action and complete the sale that nearly 11 months on, our beautiful pub would have been closed for almost as much time as we have been able to open!

To say it has been a hard fought year would be somewhat of an understatement but with the support of all our loyal customers and supporters in the village and beyond, I am so proud to say that we have made it through the year and it looks like we will come out of this the other side with an amazing business that should, fingers crossed, continue into 2021 and beyond. We could not have done it without you all and of course, it really does help that we have the most amazing team of staff working here alongside us and without them, we simply wouldn't be here today so to them and you.......thank you, thank you, thank you. 

Now, on to the important part.....when will be open over Christmas!!  As we have remained in Tier 2, to continue to trade, all drinkers must be served a substantial meal with their drinks so when booking a table, please always bare this in mind. You are not able to come for a drink without eating and as much as I would love to say yes, a bag of crisps does not count! :)

Our limited lunchtime menu will have a selection of baguettes and a small offering of hot meals. Please note, we may not be able to cater for all dietary requirements so when booking, please mention any special requirements before confirming your table. 

On Christmas Day, we will be serving our delicious homemade substantial Sausage Rolls and festive treats for you to enjoy with your Christmas Day drinks.

If you would like to book a table inside or out for any of the above days, please call us here at the pub or reply to this e-mail but be quick, we expect to fill up very quickly. Please remember, we are unable to mix households inside and this also stands for your Christmas Bubble. Even though you are allowed to mix at home between the 23rd-27th, you are unable to sit inside the pub together however you can book a table in our marquee. 

We will be offering our takeaway menu on Tuesday and Wednesday of next week and the menu will be e-mailed tomorrow and please remember, on Tuesday evening, if you choose to dine in the pub, it will only be the takeaway menu offered along with limited smaller bites.

Finally, before I sign off, many of you know we have been selling raffle tickets for our meat draw and we decided to have one large Christmas Draw for the month and this will take place tomorrow afternoon. If you would like to buy tickets, please pop in today or tomorrow, they cost just £1 per ticket and we have many prizes up for grabs.

hanks everyone, have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you all very soon,

Warmest Festive Regards
