Red Lion Newsletter 1
Nearly a month into our tenure of the beautifully refurbished community pub that is the Red Lion. James and I and our respective families have been overwhelmed at the support and good wishes going forward given to us by you the village population - and indeed Trip advisor comments.
We are in this business primarily to enjoy it obviously and secondly to pay our way but thirdly and very importantly we are here to provide a service that you the village can believe in and trust.
I've spoken to Barney at the Swan and we believe that the village can sustain two pubs and that we can bounce and thrive off each other. We also want to commit to some inter pub sporting rivalry. Inter pub Aunt Sally, festive season tug of war, golf society and more - all plausible.
Let me tell you a bit about our plans. Under the guidance of our two excellent chefs Paddy and 'Mac' we are already bringing you amazing fare at lunch and dinner time. Nearer the weekend we extend the menu and champion steak on a Thursday, Fish and Fizz on a Friday and of course a traditional Sunday lunch.
We are looking for a couple of people to run a weekly quiz on a Sunday night. We can provide everything needed and have a tried and trusted formula, but just need a couple of people to take this initiative on board and run with it. Soon as we have this in place then a Sunday night quiz and free mid time buffet will commence from say 8.30.
We also have exciting plans for the function room, but that is for next time...
We are also looking for long term staff, contact James for details. The pub number on the pre-launch leaflet that was delivered to you may well have been wrong, it is 01865 375367; ask for a business card fridge magnet - you will always have it to hand then. Also, Sunday evening the kitchen is closed, so have a drink on the patio or in the garden and order in a take away. Only obviously Sunday night and outside and when the kitchen is closed.
Kind regards and best wishes
Andy, James and families.
