Richard, Tanya and family took over The Red Lion @ Heytesbury in November and have been busy creating a family-friendly pub. They have also created new menus, redecorated accommodation and built an improved huge riverside garden.

“We are really excited to be opening on April 12 subject to Covid regulations,” said Richard. “We have purchased a large marquee so you can come and enjoy some much-needed catch -up time with a glass of wine, a pint or just freshly ground Dorset coffee and cake, whatever the weather knowing we are doing everything to make it as safe as possible for you.

“Bookings are being taken for the benches under the marquee, but there are plenty more overlooking the river. The menu offers classic pub food including vegetarian and vegan options, with a large amount homemade by Tanya.”

The accommodation is open for bookings for May onwards. The Red Lion is also available for holding functions subject to the lifting of restrictions.

“We are looking forward to welcoming you back,” said Richard. Please phone 01985 840333 for bookings or enquiries. Facebook – The Red Lion Heytesbury.
