Overlooking the village green and the hills of the beautiful South Downs National Park, The Red Lion is located in Fernhurst, adjacent to the start of the footpath to Blackdown, where the weald’s tallest point stands proudly. Dine in the cosy pub, with authentic oak beams and an inglenook fireplace, or enjoy an al fresco meal in the lovely garden, which has a patio, a covered wooden barn and a wood burner to keep you warm in the winter months. The menu features a range of exceptional homemade fare, and caters for vegetarians and those with allergies. If you’re looking for a quick bite to eat there’s a great selection of bar snacks and sandwiches made with fresh bread from a local baker. Those after a heartier meal can choose from a tempting selection of dishes from the main menu and specials board, such as homemade steak and venison pudding, beer-battered fish and chips, and ever-changing veggie options like goat’s cheese and mushroom Wellington. Whatever you choose, be sure to leave room for a splendid homemade dessert. All who visit receive a warm welcome, and you can even bring your four-legged friend along to this friendly country pub. Two small function rooms are available for private hire, providing a unique and intimate setting for a memorable dining experience.
