Red Lion Harlow

This pub is subject to a proposed refurbishment, the details of which are being worked up. While we don't have any further details to share right now, we are welcoming applications.

Extensive Refurbishment Planned
A full refurbishment will reposition this pub to offer a broad appeal in the local community. The back-of-house layout changes will make operation far more efficient and allow an exciting new food offer to be introduced. The result of the planned refurbishment will be a multi-functional venue where customers can both dine and enjoy a casual drink with a perfect atmosphere for couples and families to enjoy a relaxed bite to eat. The Red Lion will be just the spot to gather with friends to watch sport, catch up after work or on the weekend, and, of course, enjoy nice food and a beer.

Great Location
Located in a high-density residential area with 6,000 adults within a half-mile radius, and 17,500 adults within 1 mile, this pub is perfectly positioned to become the hub of the community and a great local for everyone to enjoy. As competition is limited in the area, an opportunity exists to create a destination location for fantastic pub grub, coffee, cask ales, and quality wine. This combination of good value food and drink, with mid-week sports and entertainment at the weekend, means that this pub will have all the things that a great local should offer.

Exciting Potential

This is a fantastic opportunity to run a local with all the charm of an old-fashioned pub, but all the amenities of a contemporary establishment. A fantastic drinks offer will be available, as well as delicious home-cooked food. This will, of course, include a Sunday roast and pub classics such as fish and chips, as well as curry nights and more. What's more, customers can enjoy the gorgeous large beer garden found at the rear. With weekly quiz nights and entertainment, this pub is set to be the hub of the community, and able to cater for every occasion.
All it needs is the right person to help it realise it's potential. So, could that be you?
