About Us


We welcome you to The Red Lion, a 400 year old traditional country pub in the heart of Northamptonshire serving tasty home cooked food, great wine and an ever changing selection of real ales.

We took over the lease to The Red Lion in July 2011 and haven't looked back since. We love the fact that The Red Lion is a traditional country pub that has been in the village for many years and is valued by the community.

We have an entire wall dedicated to old photos of the pub and the village dating back to the early 1900's. Opposite this is the open fire place which is always roaring in the winter months.

We have tried to build on the existing character of the building to create a comfortable and friendly atmosphere offering great food and excellent service. In other words a 'proper English pub'!




All our meals on our menu are cooked from scratch using fresh ingredients. We also have an allotment next to our beer garden and the produce from this will often feature on our specials board.

As we are a freehouse we have the advantage of being able to choose whichever beers we like, whenever we like. It just depends what our locals want on the pumps that week!

We are also delighted to have been named 'Best Local Pub' in Morrisons Magazine 'Great Grub Awards 2013'. 
More recently we received CAMRA's 'Rural Pub of  Summer 2016' and we were finalists in the Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards 2016 for 'Best Bar None Rural Pub' for which we received a Gold Award.

We look forward to welcoming you for a drink soon...

Simon & Louise
