The Red Lion

Main Street, LONG COMPTON, Shipston on Stour, CV36 5JS

Wooded ridges ripple along the horizons enfolding this attractive north Cotswolds village. Ramblers challenge a web of recreational trails hereabouts, while folklorists home-in on the mysterious Rollright Stones monument just to the south. Explorers in-the-know then make a bee-line for the village's Red Lion pub. Its Georgian coaching inn origins bequeath an appealing mix of beams, stone-flags and honey-coloured stone, matchboarding, inglenook and log fires. The seasonal menu, complemented by daily specials, has the award of one AA Rosette for the considered mix of classic and contemporary dishes, and may offer starters such as smoked duck salad with poached pears, prosciutto and rocket. Progress then with vegetable and lentil cottage pie; or whole roasted sea bass with baby leaf spinach, grain mustard and tarragon butter. In summer, the shrubby beer garden is just the place to enjoy beers from Hook Norton and Wickwar breweries. Dogs are well-liked here, in fact pigs' ears are available as snacks for your four-legged friend; whilst well-appointed accommodation is on hand for those on short breaks.
