Chef/proprietor Phil Wild and wife, Arden, took over this dining pub with rooms in February 2016 and following major renovations, the couple re-opened in March 2016 and gave the Inn a new name, ‘The Red Lion Pub & Kitchen’.
Phil Wild is an enthusiastic and dedicated supporter of local producers and suppliers, including local game from the Well Barn Estate, meat, fruit and vegetables from local suppliers and fresh fish delivered daily from Cornwall.
Phil’s long and illustrious career as a chef includes working in iconic British inns and hotels, having started his career at the Michelin-starred Carlton Elite Hotel in Switzerland. Phil has also worked as Head Chef at The Bear Hotel, Woodstock (3 rosette) The Stonehouse Court, Gloucester (2 rosette), The Great House, Sonning (2 rosette), the Sir Christopher Wren, Windsor (2 rosette) and The Swan Hotel, Streatley.
The Wilds’ intend to restore the Inn to its rightful place at the centre of the community and offer a relaxing and convivial place to meet, drink, eat and sleep in picturesque surroundings.
