The Red Lion is situated in the village of Thorpe in Surrey, between Egham and Chertsey. It lies just inside the circle of the M25, near the M3. The River Bourne or Chertsey Bourne flows through the south of village. The south-east of the village is the location of Thorpe Park, one of England's largest theme parks, which is also a Watersports Centre, it’s a very affluent area with the famous Royal Ascot racecourse also nearby.
The Red Lion offers an interesting and varied bistro style menu from Mediterranean, Steak & Grill and Sea Food to Thai in very warm and welcoming surroundings. This lovely characterful building dates back to the 18th century and benefits from having a well presented bar and restaurant which have been recently refurbished (we estimate the fixtures and fittings value to be in the region of £50,000), a large garden with an extensively equipped children’s play area, beer garden, a covered patio area and its own private car park with spaces for up to 45 vehicles.
The restaurant accommodates 70 covers, the bar a further 20 and the covered patio and beer garden at the rear can provide up to an additional 80 seated customers. The Red Lion also caters for wedding sit down receptions, evening discos, funerals, birthdays, Xmas parties and client meetings. The current incumbent has successfully operated this profitable business since 2007 and is now looking to sell due to a change of career.
