Special Occasion Dining, Romantic, View, Groups, Bar Scene
The Red Lion Inn pub in Shamley Green sits in an idyllic location, overlooking the village cricket pitch in the Surrey Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - an area that offers some of South East England's most scenic and accessible countryside. Just 10 minutes south of Guildford, our traditional village pub is stunning on the outside and cosy on the inside, with a beautiful dining room, spacious beer garden and outdoor patio for blissful summer dining. We pride ourselves in serving only freshly-prepared, locally-sourced food using only the finest ingredients (our Sunday Roast is delicious!) and we have an extensive range of cask ales and wines to match. The Red Lion Inn is the perfect
