I grew up in Blewbury. The Red Lion has always been at the heart of the community, from packed Friday nights, Boxing Day walks, quizzes and more.
Like many residents, I am sad, in recent years, the pub has lost its way and have long wanted to bring it back to its former glory, as a down-to-earth local pub. Which is why I’m delighted to announce that we will be reopening the Red Lion in the next few weeks.
As much as we’d like to open the garden from 12 April, we won’t be ready to roll until May. With the appointment of Jack Butler as our experienced pub host, we look forward to welcoming drinkers as well as diners back into the fold. We’re also working on a few ideas for sourcing local produce served by locally recruited staff as well as involve local community groups. More ideas welcome!
