Our picturesque courtyard offers a quiet and peaceful outdoors dining option, for those looking to eat alfresco on a warm summer’s day. With ornate cast iron tables and chairs, sympathetically in keeping with the hotel’s ancient character. As well as our centuries old Virginia creeper vine. Our courtyard offers a secluded retreat to dine outdoors, beneath a beautiful natural canopy.
Whether you’re looking for a shady spot to cool off, or a table directly in the sun, you’ll find it in our Red Lion courtyard. With our ancient Virginia creeper vine (one of the last remaining in the world) providing natural canopy. The Courtyard offers dining in the most beautiful of settings.
We serve traditional afternoon tea year-round in our Victoria Lounge but in the warmer months we extend this to our Courtyard too. Enjoy a seasonal selection of fresh finger sandwiches, petit fours and scones. Washed down with English tea, or a glass of something sparkling. Like a picnic (but fancier).
