Step into The Red Lion in Sturmer, a beautiful and charming independent pub steeped in history, tracing its origins back to the 14th Century. Today, it stands as a beautiful pub, offering not only exceptional food but also an impressive selection of beers, delectable wines, and premium spirits. The wonderfully inviting space extends to a delightful garden, providing a serene backdrop to your dining experience. For your convenience, The Red Lion offers ample parking, and rest assured, your furry friends are welcomed with open arms.

At the heart of the pub’s ethos is a profound passion for food. The dedicated team of highly skilled chefs prepares each and every dish with care and precision right on the premises. They take pride in sourcing ingredients from some of the region's most esteemed artisanal producers, ensuring a commitment to quality and freshness. While the menu undergoes regular transformations, you can always expect a delightful selection of pub classics infused with culinary influences from around the world. The Red Lion promises not just a dining experience but a journey through flavours, blending tradition with innovation for an unforgettable meal in a historic setting.

Start your meal off with Norfolk beef carpaccio drizzled with truffle oil, horseradish root and aged parmesan, or a dish of spicy prawn samosas with roasted coconut, mustard seed hispi cabbage and coriander raita. When it comes to the mains, that's where the flair really happens. Enjoy the pan fried sea bream with spinach mash, asparagus and caper beurre blanc, fisherman's pie of haddock, prawns, cod and salmon with minted peas and buttered greens, or panko crusted cauliflower steaks with spiced bean stew and chimichurri.
