A homely welcome is extended to visitors at The Red Lion in Steeple Aston courtesy of affable proprietors Sarah and Melvin Phipps. The Phipps’ traditional English public house serves a variety of pub classics alongside a pleasing selection of Mediterranean-inspired favourites.
Only the finest and freshest ingredients go into every dish on the menu, with produce carefully procured from local suppliers where possible. The enticing food catalogue opens with a selection of nibbles, light meals and snacks to whet the appetite. These precursors to the main course include a creamy risotto and a delicious plate of nachos. Once taste buds are well and truly ignited, an explosion of flavours are brought to the pass with the second course options. The Red Lion’s particular speciality is pizza which is cooked to perfection on a purpose-built stone-baked oven. These dough-based delights are topped with delicious ingredients such as oriental duck and a profusion of ham, pepperoni, prosciutto and salami in the aptly named Meat Feast. Alternatives to the Italian staple include fresh cod fillet in batter; home-cooked ham, eggs and chips and a juicy Angus beef burger. Round off a delectable savoury course with sweet treats of pancakes or a traditional toffee pudding.
The unpretentious feel of The Red Lion in the Oxfordshire locale of Steeple Aston is reinforced by the dining room décor. Rustic touches add to the comforting feel of the dining space which is stylish and homely in equal measure. A sunny summer terrace and garden is a calling card for balmy days, where guests can enjoy views of the Cherwell Valley thanks to the pub’s elevated position.
Stop by at The Red Lion in Steeple Aston in Oxfordshire and allow the Phipps’ and their team to showcase their talent for warm hospitality.
