About the Pub

The Red Lion has been welcoming customers for over 170 years and is the focal point of the Village of Latchingdon, Essex. The pub has a roadside location and benefits from a large, open plan L shape bar area complete with open fire and a conservatory dining area overlooking large gardens with views across sprawling open fields. Designed with an open plan layout, the pub has two distinct trading areas. Both light and airy, the trading areas offer a relaxing environment in which guests can enjoy both food and refreshments. The modern and cosy feel that extrudes from the interior of the pub is aided by the addition of both leather back sofas and chairs, and the wooden cladded bar. Decorated to a similar finish throughout, the interior is aligned with oak panel beams and an open brickwork fireplace with an archway staircase leading down into a bright conservatory that overlooks the beer garden. There is a well-equipped, sizeable trade kitchen that is perfectly accustomed to deliver a good, wholesome pub food offering, bringing in additional revenue to the publican. The added feature of this quaint pub comes in the form of four en-suite lettings rooms perfectly designed to offer excellent comfort and facilities to guests. Another fantastic amenity is the barn that is currently utilised as a storage facility and could be enhanced to provide extra function rooms. Stonegate Pub Partners are seeking an experienced publican to take on this pub business with multiple revenue streams.
