Covid 19 guidelines:

  • If you have any of the symptoms of Covid 19, please do not visit us. We have a duty to protect our customers, staff, community and family (living on the premises), so please do not put anyone's health at risk if you think you may be unwell.
  • Only inside tables can be reserved. We will ask for a £5 deposit per person on booking (non-refundable). You must occupy the table you have reserved inside even if the weather is nice and you're tempted to sit outside. 
  • We cannot accommodate groups of more than 6, inside or outside. Larger groups are not permitted to split between multiple tables. Any groups of more than 6 trying to do so will not be served and asked to leave the premises.
  • No large groups will be allowed to gather either inside or outside.
  • Our menu will be smaller than usual and we will be able to cater for a smaller number of people due to restrictions.
  • We operate a table service only. You must find a table and wait for a member of staff to serve you. You may not approach the bar. All guests are asked to remain seated as much as possible and children must be supervised at all times.
  • Toilets operate on a one in one out basis.
  • Guests are asked to use the sanitiser provided before entering the premises.
  • Customers must wear a mask when entering the premises and may only remove them when sitting to eat or drink. 
  • All customers are asked to adhere to social/physical distancing guidelines.

We have worked really hard to keep our business going through this crisis and we genuinely appreciate our customers' efforts to respect these new Covid 19 rules. We understand that this may be difficult and may detract from your usual pub experience, but we ask that you work with us to make sure The Red Lion, our home, keeps trading into the future. 




Welcome to The Red Lion Birchover

Sunday Carvery

Family friendly

Birchover Brewery

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.


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 accomodate 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.


Built in 1680, The Red Lion Inn originally served as a farm and alehouse, gaining its first licence in 1722, when licensing became law. Today it retains much of its original character including a well in the bar which was originally the water source for the brewhouse. In the 17th century beer was brewed on the premises before any of the major breweries were established.


The magnificent ancient oak beams and bare stone walls provide a comfortable and homely atmosphere in which to enjoy traditional ales and freshly cooked food.


Matteo and Alyson purchased The Red Lion in 2006 and their aim is to provide good quality pub food at reasonable prices. Fresh ingredients, locally sourced where possible, are carefully cooked by Matteo and his team and transformed into tasty, wholesome meals.


At The Red Lion you are also treated to the opportunity to savour the delights of Sardinian cuisine as Matteo brings a little of his home country to the Peak District.
