They met in 2014 and started searching for the perfect pub. After a long search and several near misses they settled on the Red Lion in Northend as the pub for them.
Following an initial intensive period of renovation and repairs the pub was re-opened on 2nd August 2018.
We want to become an integral part of the village with events like the extremely successful Children's Christmas Carol Concert being just the beginning of a long and happy association with Northend!
The Red Lion is a village pub that sells good, honest pub food.
