We say…

Within the quaint Lincolnshire village of Caythorpe, the Red Lion is a traditional English pub and eatery well-loved  by visitors all over the county. The rustic building sits in the heart of village life in Caythorpe, often favoured by locals for fantastic food and a welcoming atmosphere.

Inside the Red Lion is comfortable and homely. Roaring fires keep the restaurant cosy and warm in the winter, with stunning open fireplaces and candlelit tables. There’s a choice of dining in the recently renovated bar area which has a light and airy feel, in one of two dining rooms, or even the garden room. The new addition of a patio also adds the element of alfresco dining to the mix. To really relax, take advantage of the snug sofas and carefully picked wine list.

With a wonderful reputation for fresh, delicious English food, the Red Lion has a great menu with lots to choose from. Serving classic specials such as Soup of the Day and beer battered haddock, there is something to keep everybody happy. If you’re feeling a  bit more adventurous, you can choose from twists on the classics, such as the minted lamb and redcurrant burger – delicious and sourced from local farms. If you’re there to share or just can’t choose, the seafood and meaty platters offer brilliant value for money – they’re all the variety you want and are served alongside tasty Kalamata olives and garlic and herb bread.  Serving generous portions, it’s widely recommended to make sure you leave some room for one of the Red Lion’s homemade desserts too, such as a golden syrup and ginger sponge, or an indulgent rich chocolate and Amaretto pudding. There’s plenty to choose from for lighter lunch and nibbles too, perfect if you’re really there to sample their large selection of traditional ales.

The Red Lion is a perfect English pub and restaurant to visit, be it for a quick drink or a three-course meal. Both dining rooms can also be privately booked for up to 40 people each, making it a great place to celebrate a birthday or book that work evening out. 

Brilliant food and great value for money isn’t all you’ll get at the Red Lion (Caythorpe), the friendly staff and well-known John the landlord create a personal dining experience, making you feel at home from the moment you walk through the door.
