About the employer

Originally built in the 16th century by the local Parish council serving their own ale to the faithful community, The Red Lion has a rich and fascinating history and has maintained much of its character. Inside you'll find original wooden beams that are over 400 years old, real open fires and flagstone floors. This traditional country pub is a fine place to enjoy a hearty meal. On Sundays choose from a selection of roast meats or a tasty vegetarian option. Traditional Sunday lunches are served with a great big Yorkshire pudding and unlimited gravy. The first account of the Red Lion is a rent receipt dating back to 1629, which was £1 for 'rent of the churchowse'. The church owned the Red Lion right up until it was sold in 1948. The local Parish built the Red Lion pub over 400 years ago. It was common practise for churches to create church houses as meeting places for the community where they could buy ale brewed by the church to raise funds for maintenance and to help the poor. Historically, ale was an everyday drink and often safer than water. The church house was not open every day as an inn would be, only when the church celebrated religious ceremonies such as Whitsun. Much like a church hall today, parishioners could hire the church house for private parties, with the money going towards the church fund. By the 17th century, church houses such as this began to disappear.
