About The Lyon Inn

Chris and Sue moved to the area 3 years ago after selling their small boutique hotel in Montpellier Cheltenham. They opened a 5* B&B in a neighbouring village and a year later renovated a small miners cottage into a very cute holiday let set in the heart of the Forest of Dean. They have always been keen to seek out nice restaurants and pubs that offered good food and then they were sorely tempted when The Red Lion at Westbury came on the market. It has been a pub for hundreds of years, needed some TLC and they took it on!

Our Suppliers

Gosh this has been exciting. We have discovered so many small artisan producers hidden away in the corners of our beautiful area of Gloucestershire. Our coffee is roasted just a couple of miles away by Burlap and Bean, our meat is from the local area, cheese from Smarts Farm, Chaxhill, Salmon from Severn & Wye, we even grow some of our own vegetables ( and cut flowers ) in our kitchen garden in Blaisdon!

A New Restaurant is Born

Weeks of taking off decades of woodchip wallpapers, carpets that had seen better days and a kitchen that – well lets say no more, it was a ‘now or never’ moment for them. Taking on a pub from a different perspective was their usp. Its all about the hopsitality for them. This means ‘our customers should always leave a little bit happier than when they came in!’
Creating a nice ambiance, great hospitality and service and fresh delicious food were the three pillars that this great pub/brasserie has been built on.
