Newcomer of the Year

Winner – The Red Lion, Northmoor

The Red Lion is a community-owned pub in the Oxfordshire village of Northmoor. Run by Ian, Lisa and their team, the pub boasts character and charm, with log fires, beamed ceilings and a peaceful garden offering a good selection of wines, real ales and locally made soft drinks. Focusing on seasonal and local produce, Ian makes everything from scratch in the kitchen using a combination of artisan and modern techniques, providing a menu offering something for everyone.

Judges were impressed by the story behind The Red Lion and the determination of the community to keep the local pub running. The judges praised the positive reputation that The Red Lion is continuing to build and found the atmosphere a very warm and welcoming one.
