A few words
about our friendly village pub
The Red Lion is a warm and welcoming friendly pub run by Gavin, Nicky and their team. Nestling at the foot of the South Downs in the beautiful village surroundings of Willingdon, you can enjoy delicious freshly prepared food and well-kept beers. The Red Lion is famously mentioned in George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm”. We also welcome accompanying children and well behaved dogs.
We do offer a children’s menu with a variety of healthy options. For all our younger guests that clear their plate, we will offer them a complimentary ice cream for dessert. So why not come and visit us? Soak up the atmosphere over a drink and some food, whilst relaxing in the bar and restaurant.
When the sun is shining there is nowhere nicer to wish away your afternoon other than in our south western facing beer garden.
Cold outside? We offer a cosy village pub atmosphere with log burner which rarely ceases to burn through the winter months. The Red Lion is located off the A22 into Eastbourne. The nearest train stations are Hampden Park (1.3 miles), Polegate (1.8 miles) & Eastbourne (2.5 miles).
