The Red Lion is an idyllic traditional village pub based in Cranford (near Kettering) a village steeped in history where the pub has been a mainstay since the 1700s.
The Red Lion is the first pub opened by head chef and proprietor Richard Gordon with partner Sonya Harvey as part of The Greedy Gordons Group.
Bringing over 50 years (combined) of industry experience, Richard and Sonya have thrown all their energy into The Red Lion, which has been a bustling part of the community since we launched! So much so, that we won The Muddy Stilettos Award for Best Location Pub in 2019 and Booker Food Pub of the Year 2019/20 & the Booker silver dining venue of the year 2021/2022!
At The Red Lion, we have plenty of parking available behind the pub. Because our charming building is very dated disabled access is limited we advise you to call us ahead of time to see if we can meet your requirements. We do have baby-changing facilities. We are dog friendly in the bar, the snug and the garden.
Our aim has always been to bring people together with our warm hospitality and our love of delicious food and drink. Our menu is inventive, imaginative and always creative; giving the local pub scene a new and diverse way of eating.
We pride ourselves on using the very best local produce for our food and drink and reducing our carbon footprint has been at the forefront of the Red Lion’s success.
We use local producers as much as possible. We have even started growing our own produce. You can’t get fresher than that!
Our food is always cooked from fresh ingredients. Take a look at our seasonal menu and be inspired by our variety of choices.
We have a variety of wine, champagne, cocktails and draught beer. Along with a great selection of mocktails and non-alcoholic drinks. You can view our drinks menu by clicking the menu button above.

We also use The Roastery in Wellingborough and Tea Lab, another brilliant company that even does nitrogen tea at some of its venues.
