Important Customer Notice

Important Customer Notice from the Red Lion, Cotherstone

Following strong government advice to avoid gatherings in smaller public places, I have taken the not so difficult decision to temporarily suspend trading at the Red Lion. The health and safety of our community must reside over any of my economic concerns or selfishness. 

We’re a close group of friends in the Red; more in fact, I’d say you are all part of my extended family. We need to look out for each other during these uncertain times and through adversity we will find the best in ourselves. 

The Red Lion is strongly positioned; on the back of a solid previous financial year, government support and through adopting my usual fiscal approach, (tight git!) there should be no concerns with a period of dormancy.
At this moment I cannot advise or foresee when the pub will reopen, this is an unprecedented situation that is quickly evolving. I will continue to follow our government’s advice and act within the best interests of our society. Today is not the day for half measures or interpretation we must all play our part in helping safeguard life.      

My thoughts and best wishes go out to everyone, be considerate and selfless. If I can help anyone in anyway please don’t hesitate to call, I’m only a phone call away.
