The Red Lion Caythorpe

The Red Lion is a 17th century country inn in the picturesque village of Caythorpe, situated some 8 miles from Grantham & Sleaford, 10 miles from Newark and 16 miles from Lincoln.


My team and I are committed to providing quality food, drink and a warm and friendly atmosphere in the relaxed environment of a traditional pub with a roaring fire, comfy chairs and stacks of charm.

My head chef, Mark Perryman, and I have created a menu which combines pub classics, such as our homemade burgers and our renowned steak & ale pudding, with tastes and flavours from around the world, from Sicilian meatballs to Thai fish curry. Alongside the main menu is a small specials menu giving Mark the opportunity to use seasonally available ingredients. All our desserts are made on site and are definitely worth saving a little space for!

All meals are freshly prepared by Mark and his team which gives you the opportunity to relax with a drink in the bar

Taste & Style

I take great pride in the quality of the real ales we sell, and have individually selected the wine list to give a range of tastes and styles from around the world at a realistic price.

I hope you will be as enchanted with the Red Lion as I was when I first saw it and look forward to welcoming you in the near future and hope that your next visit will be one of many.
