The Red Lion enjoys a strong and balanced lunchtime and evening trade, with a wide range of guests both from the local area and visitors enjoying the surrounding countryside. This pub benefits from a well established reputation for a quality food and hospitality offer.

*Trade volumes have been affected by Covid-19 lockdown closure periods.

“The ideal applicants for the Red Lion are operators with fresh ideas and a strong catering background. I’m looking for applicants who are passionate about immersing themselves in the local community, as well as delivering a high quality and consistent food, beverage and hospitality offer.”

Tony O’Neill

Business Development Partner, South East Region


* Fair Maintainable Trade (FMT) is the level of turnover and profit that we believe that the business is capable of delivering if being operated competently. The FMT is usually calculated by the Business Development Partner for the pub, who will produce a shadow profit and loss account for the business which supports the rent. A copy of the shadow profit and loss account will be provided during the recruitment process. Please see our Code of Practice for more information on FMT and rent. The Fair Maintainable Trade is not a guarantee of levels of trade or profit that will be made from the business – we strongly recommend you seek appropriate independent legal and business advice as part of your Business Plan.

† The Full Investment Breakdown for each public house is higher than the minimum investment we will accept because potential Business Partners with the minimum investment available can still be accepted as we are able to offer them financial support for the rest of the monies. The working capital incorporates the purchase of stock, glassware, loose catering effects and valuer fees – please note the number quoted on this website are based on estimates. The exact costs will be determined on the day you take on the public house by independent valuers and stock takers. Please see our Code of Practice for more information about investment.
