A little thank you

We believe a little thanks goes a long way, which is why we’re taking the time here to show some heartfelt gratitude towards all those who’ve helped us realise our vision of bringing The Old Red Lion back to its former glory and re-establishing the pub as your friendly local.

First off Anthony, Marcus and Elaine would like to express their genuine appreciation to The Old Red Lion team who demonstrate a passion for local food and community spirit on a daily basis through their unwavering excellence. We couldn’t be prouder of what’s been achieved by every member of the team, and no good deed goes unnoticed. So thank you all.

Secondly, from everyone at The Old Red Lion, we’d like to pay a huge thanks to all the guests who visit our humble public house and make it everything we hoped it would be: a friendly community hub where everybody is welcome. Whether you’re a previous local guest who has returned, or a new visitor, your custom is inspiring, and much appreciated.

Here’s a few words from some of our guests who’ve visited recently

“Visited the pub on the first day of opening after lockdown and it was a brilliant experience. Friendly staff, great beer and an outstanding view. My daughter keeps asking for a pizza like the one in the pub. Unfortunately I don’t have an outdoor oven.”

“Fantastic service, amazing fresh food and really reasonably priced. The views are also spectacular!! Would recommend it, and definitely will be going back.”

“Great place to meet, eat and enjoy the view! Superb new menu with a warm and friendly welcome.”

“We had the takeaway pizzas and I’m absolutely thrilled they have vegan options!!! I loved my vegano with extra chilli.: Fantastic work, keep up the fresh ideas.”

“Great find in Great Brickhill, stunning garden elevated views for the best al fresco dining on our doorstep. Superb dining deck with a great traditional pub food menu & a serious pizza oven. Fab menu choice and top notch food with good portions. Great job ORL team, we’ll be back again soon.”

Eat Out to Help Out

Whilst we’re on the subject of very happy customers, let’s have a quick chat about the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme, which the government has kindly put in place to help pubs and restaurants thrive during this trying time. We’re pleased to announce that this generous offer will be available at The Old Red Lion on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday throughout August.

If you’re not familiar with the scheme then here’s a handy rundown.

The Eat Out to Help Out Scheme offers a 50% discount up to a maximum of £10 per person, for people to spend on food or non-alcoholic drinks. There’s no limit on the number of times that a customer can use the offer in August, and alcohol, service charges, and takeaways are excluded. For further information you can visit: Gov eat out scheme.
