The Red Lion Inn at Stathern has been named Leicestershire & Rutland Dining Pub of the Year in the Good Pub Guide 2015.
The Red Lion was praised in the new guide for its “impeccable, friendly service, delicious food and interesting range of drinks”.
Ben Jones, joint proprietor of The Red Lion with Sean Hope, said: “At the beginning of the year we sat down as a team and outlined what we all thought a great country pub should be. We then set about creating that vision. This award is the culmination of everyone’s hard work.
“Our aim is for the Red Lion to be a proper pub offering a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone to enjoy, serving great food and great drink. Quality is very important to us.”
The Red Lion Inn has also received an award from CAMRA’s Vale of Belvoir Branch for serving the best mild ale – Oscar Wilde Mild brewed by Essex’s Mighty Oak Brewing Co – during CAMRA’s Mild in May event
