The Red Lion is a well established business located at the heart of the attractive market town of Beaminster, having been fully refurbished by the brewery 4 years ago.

The pub benefits from a function room, skittle alley, a well appointed commercial catering kitchen, and a large enclosed walled garden with a sheltered smoking area and outdoor seating

The Red Lion has built up a thriving trade and is popular with local customers and tourist trade alike during the summer season.  There is large private flat and separate barn for storage at the end of the trade garden. The pub would suit an experienced couple ready to continue to build the business, or those with a managed house background looking to take the helm in thier first business.  The pub currently enjoys a following for team sports and the skittle alley is well used by the local skittle league, and is perfectly set up to grow food sales in particular.

Beaminster has a large central car park opposite the pub and there is a bus stop service adjacent to the front entrance to the pub. If you enjoy being at the heart of the community then this is the perfect opportunity to join Palmers Brewery with our award winning support and partnership agreements.
