The Red Lion

With a history dating back to 1730, The Red Lion at Water End is situated in rural Hertfordshire. During its life as an old coaching inn, the building housed a Brewhouse, two cellars and six rooms, and occupied three acres of land complete with animals and farm equipment. Current features include a lounge and bar area, dining space with open kitchen, and a spacious carpark.

Open all day from 8am, we serve a seasonal menu with a Mediterranean influence in our stylish dining room. Dedicated to quality produce, we source our meat and poultry from British farmers, and select free-range eggs and responsibly sourced fish.

Our coffee is Rainforest Alliance certified, and our wine is carefully selected by Enotria&Coe, a company that has built its knowledge over the course of the past 125 years.

Preparation and execution of our varied menu is equally as important, and our open kitchen features a charcoal-fuelled Josper grill, and a wood-burning oven. As members of the Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana, we serve authentic Neapolitan pizza, handmade by our trained pizzaiolos. Our classic dishes also include 12 hour roasted pork belly, Halloumi and Portobello mushroom burger, and Josper-grilled salmon and avocado salad. For families, our bespoke children’s menu comes with an activity pack, and most dietary requirements are easily accommodated for.
