Temporary Kitchen Closure

It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you of the temporary closure of our kitchen at The Red Lion from Friday 8th October 2021.

As some of you may already know, our Head Chef, Stuart is leaving us this week to move on to pastures new. Stuart’s been a long standing member of the team both here at the Lion and the wider Lewis Partnership for over two decades. He’ll be sorely missed but we wish him all the best in his new role.

We were pleased to have quickly secured a new Head Chef, who was supposed to start work with us today. However, frustratingly, that individual has let us down and won’t be joining the team.

We are therefore left in a position where it is not possible to run our kitchen operation without having a detrimental impact on both the quality and service we provide as well as the well-being of our existing team members.

Our reservations team are in the process of contacting everyone with bookings impacted by this and we are working hard to recruit and reopen our kitchen as soon as possible.

The bar will be open for drinks only Wednesday to Saturday 5-11pm and on Sundays 12-7pm.

We look forward to welcoming you back to The Red Lion very soon and appreciate your understanding at this challenging time.

P.S. if you know of anyone who might be interested in heading up our kitchen team please get them to drop us an email with their CV to humanresources@thelewispartnership.co.uk
