Hello. We are Steve and Viki and we operate the Red Lion in Cradley. We rolled up here after a brief stint in East Sussex and 20 years living and working in Crete in Greece. Originally running a bar, we opened a snack bar and subsequently rented a closed aparthotel, turning it into a succesful business. So succesful that we founded a holiday company to handle the guests that we could not accommodate at the hotel. The company grew and we operated this for 12 years
We arrived at the Red Lion on 17th of June 2017, to find a closed pub showing little sign of care or attention. Our vision was to restore the pub as a community asset and a place for people to enjoy good company, good beer and good food. We have now agreed a 5 year agreement and invested in a full and extensive refurbishment to further establish the Red Lion and to consolidate its position in the area.
Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions prior to visiting us. We always have Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan options available and are (very) dog friendly. We look forward to meeting you and hope that you enjoy your time with us.
