Out and About

Lying at the foot of the Berkshire Downs, near Didcot, in the Vale of the White Horse, Blewbury is an ancient Oxfordshire village boasting a beautifully preserved collection of ancient, half-timbered, thatched cottages, and is close to two long-distance walks – the Ridgeway and the Icknield Way – making the Inn a popular base for both walkers and cyclists.

The Red Lion Pub & Kitchen is also conveniently located close to The Harwell Science and Innovation Campus (Harwell Campus) and the Diamond Light Source and MEPC Milton Park, Didcot.
