About the Pub

Formerly the Red Lion, this large pub on the busy A30 is also very near Blackwater railway station and bus-stops, and surrounded by local shops. The main, lower area is mainly for convivial chatting, with a few steps leading up to the ‘Sports Bar’, where there’s a dart-board and 3 Pool Tables. The central bar serves both areas, serving London Pride as the regular beer, and three guest beers, generally including at least 1 Locale, and often a dark beer: an extra feature is that they also offer a ‘Tapas‘, with your choice of 3 x 1/3 pints of the cask ales. A Cocktail Bar can be opened in the upper bar when required. No food is served here, but customers are allowed to bring their own snacks, and even to have food delivered from nearby retailers! There’s a live ‘jam session’ on Thursday evenings, Rock bands on Saturdays, and sometimes live music on Fridays also. Several TV’s are available for sports or other events, as required.
