Red Lion Freehouse

Michelin-starred The Red Lion at East Chisenbury has been nominated The Good Pub Guide's dining pub of the year 2018.

Owners, Guy and Brittany Manning, met while they were both chefs in one of New York’s top restaurants and decided to combine their considerable talents to create a relaxed pub where guests could feel at home and enjoy really good food.

The Red Lion is a traditional English pub where families, children and dogs are welcome, and where the food is the best it can be.

The chicken liver pate may sound simple but Guy and Brittany worked on the recipe for months before they were happy with it and, served with Madeira jelly and toasted brioche it has become something very special.

“We take the same care over the burgers and sandwiches as we do with everything on the menu. We make everything we can in-house, including the bread, the butter and even the ketchup. We have our own hens and pigs, we grow our own veg and for the things we can’t do, we use the best and most local suppliers.”

Their private dining room is a stunning modern rustic room - perfect for birthday or shoot parties or even meetings.

My Wiltshire

We are right on the edge of the Salisbury plain here, the footpath runs from the pub out onto the open. When I get time to myself I run out onto the plain with my dog to recharge.
