This beautiful 2 storey Georgian residence began life C1830 as a licenced Inn, catering for both travellers and locals alike until 1870, after which it was converted to a private home. For the next 100 years, the doors remained closed to the general public with the building developing all the signs and wear of a well loved family home.

The 1980ís saw new life injected into the building. The Red Lion Inn name was reintroduced to the building, with guests able to visit both the restaurant and art gallery.

Now, seeing her third century, the Red Lion Inn is our family home. Furnished with period pieces, we invite you to stay and enjoy all the charm and atmosphere that a building of her vintage offers.
