About Us

The Red Lion is a popular pub and restaurant not far from the River Test, offering alfresco dining in the beer garden or on the heated, covered patio. In the summer, the garden is a blaze of floral colour. The pub has been run by Caroline and Shannon Wells since the summer of 2007. Our contemporary food is full of flair and represents great value for money.

We are less than a couple of miles away from the new Bombay Sapphire distillery in Laverstoke, and the pub is the perfect place for a meal before or after your visit there.

Wine is our other passion here, with a selection chosen not only to complement our menu, but to drink on it’s own in our bistro style bar. You can enjoy a selection of more than 20 wines by the glass and sparkling rose with mussels on the patio is a must!

As well as our well chosen wines we always keep three local real ales on tap, as well as a wide range of lagers and ciders, including Birra Moretti, Kronenbourg and our craft ale, Caledonian’s Coast to Coast.

The Red Lion also plays host to a quiz team that competes in the Whitchurch, Overton and District Quiz League on Monday evenings during the Winter.

Finally, we have an outbuilding, formerly a barn, which has been converted into a private bar. It provides seating for 20 people and can be hired as a private function room for parties or similar functions. If you fancy competing against your friends, we have a skittle alley that is available for hire at an additional cost.
