Staying informed

Here you'll find regular updates about new developments and promotions.

Birchover Blue Cheese -

Our rich, creamy blue cheese is now available to buy from the bar priced at £2.50 per 100g (minimum order 120/150g). 


Defibrillator For Birchover

We are currently raising money in conjunction with The Community Heartbeat Trust in order to install and maintain a defibrillator in the heart of Birchover. We need to raise £2500 and, thanks to some generous contributions from local residents, we have raised over half this amount. However, there is some way to go before we can have this peice of life-saving equipment installed. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so in person at the red lion Birchover, or visit our charity checkout at:


Birchover Brewery

Birchover Brewery is now fully functional!

Matteo is currently producing our wonderful 'Bircher Best' on a regular basis on site. Bircher Best (3.9% abv) is a traditional amber ale produced using 100% British malt and hops and can only currently be purchased from The Red Lion Birchover.

In addition to Bircher Best, we brew Cork Stone (4.5%), Nine Ladies (4.2%) and Robin Hood's Stride IPA (5%).


Women and real ale research

For Matteo's final year at university, he has completed a dissertation on the subject of women and real ale/artisan beers. We would like to offer our thanks to those women who completed our questionnaire regarding why women generally prefer not to drink real ale.


A copy of the final study is available for customers to read at the Red Lion on request.
