Welcome to The Red Lion

We are pleased to announce that the Red Lion is back open again after the COVID Lockdown. The popular takeaway service is still being offered but if you would like to eat at the Pub, table booking is advised. We look forward to seeing you at The Red Lion, Brightwell-cum-Sotwell. Current Tier 2 rules apply, therefore we must insist that households only are allowed to book a table inside the pub. We do have a marquee in the garden with outside seating and heaters (Rule of 6 applies). Anyone wanting alcohol must have a 'substantial meal' - Thank you for your co-operation and support
