The Red Lion
Standlake Road, Northmoor, OX29 5SX
Set off the beaten track in the beautiful village of Northmoor, the award-winning Red Lion is owned by the community and run by Ian and Lisa Neale and their passionate team. Full of character and charm, the atmosphere inside is unbeatable. For diners, there’s a pub classics board that changes with the seasons, running alongside the regularly changing à la carte and children’s menus. The pub’s garden supplies the kitchen with fantastic seasonal produce and provides beautiful fresh flowers for the pub. Everything from the kitchen is made fresh on-site, including the bread; it’s no wonder this fantastic establishment has featured in The Michelin Guide several years running. There are four local real ales on tap and a local premium lager, in addition to a comprehensive whisky selection and an interesting and varied wine list. Be sure to check out the delicious amber ale, Community Endeavour, which is made exclusively for the community pubs of Oxfordshire by local independent brewery, Oxbrew.
