The Red Lion in Chalgrove is a charming village inn whose landlord and landlady have a well-learned background in fine cuisine. Over and above, this church-owned pub, which a few centuries ago was a bolthole for carousing church wardens, delivers top-quality wines and real ales. As well as a five star food hygiene rating, The Red Lion has also won many awards for the quality of the real ales and beautiful food on offer. During the summer, its beautiful front and rear gardens are at their peak and are some of the most desirable spots in the area for à la carte dining. During colder months, a welcoming log fire inside will melt away those winter blues.

After an evening spent sampling Raymond and Suzanne Sexton’s wares, their masterly approach to food is plain to see. They offer a wide range of excellent food, featured on a seasonally changing à la carte menu, a daily specials board and a light snack and sandwich menu. The addition of a pudding evening with 12 sweet options available on the second Tuesday of every month demonstrates their expanding repertoire. On specific evenings throughout winter, a pie night boasts eight choices of pie – the ultimate comfort food.

My breast of Gressingham duck sliced on rhubarb and ginger sauce was an inspired dish – the duck was plump and succulent, beautifully offset by the exciting sauce. The Red Lion can also cater for all manner of events, including weddings, funerals, parties, hog roasts, prize-givings, fundraisers and much more. Everyone is welcome at this delightful rural pub.
