2 for 1 at The Red Lion - Chenies

Mike and Heather have been running this 16th century country freehold public house for 20 years and are pleased to offer you a traditional pub that serves great Ales (mainly sourced from local or micro-breweries) and really tasty homemade food and not a restaurant that sells beer!

With the help of the customers and friendly staff Mike and Heather aim to provide a great and comfortable atmosphere, also due to no music, juke boxes, fruit machines or television screens.

The Red Lion is very proud to have won the Chiltern Food Pub of the Year 2008 as well as Camra's runner up Mid-Chilterns Pub of the Year 2009. They also have entries in the Good Pub and Good Beer guides.

Unfortunately, The Red Lion are unable to accept children under the age of 14, except in the outdoor seating area when under adult supervision. The Red Lion provides a car park at the rear and there is suitable parking on the road outside.

Important Information

Please Note: The tastecard discount is not available during the month of December.

    Not been for a while as the menu did not appeal ...having lost the magnificent Lamb Steaks. Took friends there last week and although the Lamb is not back the menu is much improved. Still like a pub that refuses to serve chips `( Keeps the noisy brats out !!)
    Very pleasant staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Love a discount too! Going again next week.Yum yum. "

    " Enjoyed a lovely lunch today at the Red Lion.

    Very friendly reception, great choice of food and a really cosy place to sit and relax. It is clearly very popular with walkers, judged by the number of empty boots by the front door!

    The food was very nicely cooked with good portion sizes.

    Thanks to the tastecard, we can enjoy eating here twice as often in future. "

    We have been coming to eat at The Red Lion for quite a few years... We eat out regularly at many restaurants in many locations and we always compare. Needless to say the food is absolutely superb. We are never disappointed with the food, service and friendliness that you will find at The Red Lion.

    Five stars don’t really tell you how good the food is. Cannot recommend enough.... and now the tastecard can be used it is just an excuse to eat there more often! "

    I had a stunning Sea Bream from the specials menu and my co-diners loved their Sunday Roasts and all the trimmings. The welcome was generous, the buzz in the pub so friendly, the staff smiling, courteous and very efficient. The House Red was luscious and moorish (we didn't taste the white on this occasion) and the choice of beers and lagers refreshingly different from "the norm". I was very surprised to find out that my tastecard could be used in this lovely little country pub - the whole experience was superb and excellent value - WE WILL BE BACK. "
