The Red Lion pub finished within the Top 10 of the 64 that were nominated in the Eexter Express & Echo newspaper's Pub of the Year Competition! It is great to see that the Red Lion was placed 9th in the overall Competition. So congratulations go to the Red Lion for such a strong showing in the Competition, and our congratulations must also go to the overall winnning pub the Travellers Rest in Exeter.
Even more pleasing is the fact that the Red Lion was the highest placed pub in the Competition within the Sidmouth, Sidford & Sidbury area beating off strong local competition.
With the Red Lion pub coming in the Top 10 across the whole of the wide area covered by the readership of the Express & Echo it shows that there is great support out there for the pub. It also demonstrates that there are those in the local community who value the Red Lion & who want to see it retained in the heart of the village.
Congratulations to the Red Lion & all of its supporters for the very public vote of confidence in it!
