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 equipt 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.
