Welcome to The Red Lion Manningtree

The oldest pub in town. Described in the Observer Food Monthly as “A great traditional freehouse, with a focus on East Anglian ales.”
We are a cosy old pub with little space for food, so we thought we’d leave that to you. Customers are welcome to bring their Fish and Chips, Indian, Chinese, Pizza or Thai with them to the pub, with cutlery, plates and napkins provided free of charge. Just order a glass of your favourite ale or wine while you chose from the selection of menus – many of the local takeaways will deliver direct to the pub! Fantastically different and more fun than a restaurant meal without the high prices.

In keeping with traditional pubs we have an open fire on through the colder months, perfect to finish that walk with the dog and relax with a pint of quality ale. The Pub has a large 60 -130 capacity function room to the rear of the property for parties and private events, it does get booked very quickly so please don’t delay. During the summer our Courtyard garden is a real sun trap offering a sheltered space to relax late into the evening.

As Manningtree’s best freehouse we source a superb selection of Guest ales and ciders from local breweries and some more traditional brews from further afield. These can all be sampled and enjoyed in our comfy chesterfields and when it’s time to go home we have flagans perfect to take home 2 or 4 pints of your favourite beers.

Function Rooms

We now have two function rooms available for meetings, classes, private parties and events.

Our upstairs Function Room is 905 sq ft, with air conditioning, portable stage, stage lighting, built in sound system, tables and chairs for up to 80. This room is ideal for birthday parties and celebrations with larger parties of 40-100. For parties the room is £75, this includes opening of private bar, stage, set up for any music/band, and cleaning post event. More convenient than a Village hall, with a built in bar, well trained staff, flexible curfew and no cleaning up late! If you are looking to host dance, yoga, singing or similar classes, the room is private from the rest of the Pub and can be accessed from the South Street without having to enter the pub, but obviously after a tough class a hot drink or wine would always be welcome. For classes the room is available daily from 10am at £7.50 per hour, please contact us on 01206 391880 for more details, and availability.

The Pump Room is our new smaller room downstairs, ideal for parties of 20 – 30, nice and close to the bar, this room is available for parties and meetings. With a separate audio system and 55″ display available for use for meetings.
