Clacton Road, Thorrington, CO7 8EX

You’ll find The Red Lion tucked away in the village of Thorrington – an historic hamlet that boasts a medieval church, stunning surroundings and is even mentioned in the Domesday Book. This beautiful pub has been a fixture here for many years, and is now run by a local farming family who are eager to share their passion for wholesome British food with diners.

The majority of the dishes served are crafted with local ingredients – the owners even farm their own Hereford cattle to produce the most tender and juicy steaks possible. The pub also offers a fantastic selection of fine wine, ale and draught beer, and staff are more than happy to suggest the perfect tipple to complement your mood. In terms of its atmosphere, The Red Lion strikes the perfect balance between relaxed and lively; it’s a truly family-friendly spot, and well-behaved dogs are welcome too so there’s no need for anyone to miss out. A popular spot with locals, the owners host a regular quiz night on the second Tuesday of every month – a fantastic chance to test your general knowledge and see some friendly faces.

Of course, no English pub is complete without a menu of fresh, home-cooked food, and the chefs whip up quality food and unbeatable value for money. Treat yourself to something hearty and comforting. The vegetarian lasagne is a delicious option, while the beef equivalent is popular with meat-eaters. For something a little more decadent, opt for the sumptuous pan-fried duck breast in a beautiful red wine jus, served with mashed potato and vegetables. All the pub classics are available too – from sausage and mash and pie of the day, to fish and chips and ham and egg, these dishes are bound to satisfy. Round off your meal with a sumptuous dessert – there’s a plethora of tempting options so you’re sure to find something to satisfy your sweet-tooth. On Sundays, The Red Lion serves a traditional roast with tender, flavoursome meat and a huge variety of vegetable sides.
