Welcome to The Red Lion

The Red Lion , public bar, lounge bar and public bar, Cranford

In the summer of 2015 The Red Lion underwent a bit of a transformation. New owners and Cranford residents Mark and Emma Robinson have put the love back into the pub investing in a brand new kitchen and cellar, and have made huge improvements to the conservatory restaurant, lounge bar and public bar. The Red Lion has a fantastic team lead by Manager Dan Stone and Head Chef Stephen Taylor who deliver a top class service to all our customers. The Red Lion also has a beautiful pub garden and a NEW PLAY AREA opened June  2016, the garden is well tended and captures the summer sun for most of the day and is a great place to come and relax and grab a bite to eat.

The Red Lion is at its heart a village pub with an excellent food offering. We have a traditional classic bar menu, an al a carte menu, a children’s menu and a fantastic Sunday lunch. We are located in the picturesque village of Cranford St John in Northamptonshire, and within easy travelling distance of Thrapston, Oundle, Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough. Situated in the heart of Northamptonshire, the Red Lion is ideally suited for walkers with the Hills and Dales Country Park close by and Nene Valley way within easy striking distance. Well behaved dogs are welcome in our Public Bar and you will find doggy stations by the front door to clean up after muddy walks.

ABOUT US

The Red Lion , Traditional village pub , CranfordThe Red Lion pub is ideally situated in the picturesque village of Cranford St John, Northamptonshire just off the A14.

With a history that stretches back over 400 years, The Red Lion has character and charm befitting of a traditional village pub with low ceilings, beams, open fires and cosy corners. Our restaurant is a contemporary addition which is bright and spacious and allows view to the garden which is beautifully lit in the evening and well tended by our local gardener.

Cranford has also been the ancestral home of our family, the Robinsons since the 18th century. We have been intrinsically linked with the village, the land, the school, church and the pub during this time and value the importance of community.

The Red Lion , Traditional village pub , Cranford, drinks.

It is arguable that one of our main attractions is the food we serve in our restaurant. Our main themes are fresh, local and seasonal and the quality of our ingredients is paramount. We source beef and lamb from neighbouring farms, fruit such as quince and apples from our estate orchard, honey from Cranford’s own bee-keeper and, in the winter, game from our family shoot and wild venison from our woods.

Our bar offer consists of a selection of quality drinks from recognised brands to craft ales and premium lagers to complement the experience at The Red Lion.

All of the above would be for nothing if it were not for our staff, of whom we are immensely proud. We are so lucky to have such a dedicated and professional team.
But perhaps their best quality is their relaxed good nature, and it is that which is so important in welcoming you, our guests. We look forward to welcoming you to the Red Lion either for a quiet drink after a walk through the village or for a meal in our restaurant.
