The Red Lion is located in the beautiful village of Birchover, surrounded by stunning countryside popular with walkers, climbers and holiday makers alike. Being in the heart of the Peak District, we endeavour to extend a warm Derbyshire welcome to all our customers with a little Sardinian twist thrown in for good measure.


Built in 1680, The Red Lion Inn was originally an alehouse with a well in the bar area (still visible today) which would have supplied the brewery with fresh, spring water. Matteo and Alyson, since taking over the pub in 2006, have re-introduced brewing to The Red Lion with 'Birchover Brewery', currently brewing a range of ales, a selection of which can be enjoyed here and nowhere else! Some of the beers are available in bottles to take away and gift packs are available. 


Matteo is the resident chef, landlord, brewer and cheesemaker (oh, and he teaches full time too). All of our food is prepared using fresh ingredients, locally sourced where possible. We keep our menu small, to ensure good quality, freshly cooked food every time, but also offer 'specials' on our blackboards.


Throughout the year, we host events such as Sardinian Nights, Curry buffets, Tapas evenings and much more. Please have a look at our events page for more details. 


Whatever the weather throws at us, we're well equipped with log burners to warm the winter days or a south facing patio to soak up those precious sunny days. Having a young family of our own, we always try to accommodate children and muddy boots or waggy tailed dogs are also welcome to use our tap room. So come in and join us for a pint of real ale; a warming pot of tea or a hearty meal.
