The Red Lion Bars

Bars at The Red Lion, lost in time itself.

The Red Lion Bars (and Reception, Residents Lounge) have been beautifully refurbished in 2019 without losing their original character.  The bars still have solid stone floors, beams, wood burner with walls festooned with pictures of village characters long ago. They seem to look out across the bar to welcome you. However make sure you don’t pinch their seat!

If the bars could only talk! Tales of daily activities, war losses and of course stories of the families. Some of these same families remain in residence today.

You can still have a cider, a pint of real ale or a shot. However these days you can also order delicious food with influences from around the world. Food is available both at lunch and dinner time and offers a lovely alternative to the Harbour restaurant. 

Sample Bar menu 



The Snug Bar

It is the smaller of the two bars as its name suggests. Mingle with villagers, listen to their stories, try a drop of Clovelly cobbler, or local cider. You can order from our modern evening bar menu.

Red Lion Snug Bar

The Harbour Bar

It is the daytime hub of the Quay with a wide and exciting choice of real ales and ciders. We serve fresh sandwiches, fresh seafood, dressed crab along with many other locally sourced food.  There are tables both inside and outside on the quay so you can soak up the ambience and history of this wonderful place.
