The Red Lion Manningtree

The oldest pub in town. Described in the Observer Food Monthly as “A great traditional free house, 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. At the same time, 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. Our courtyard garden is a real sun trap offering a sheltered space to relax late into the evening during the summer.

As Manningtree’s best free house, 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 bottles perfect for taking 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 a 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. You can access it from South Street without having to enter the pub, but, after a challenging class, a hot drink or wine would always be welcome. For classes, the room is available daily from 10 am at £7.50 per hour. Please get in touch with 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.

The room is free to reserve from Monday- Thursday but does get booked up, so don’t hesitate to contact us for availability; for the private party Friday – Sunday, the room is £40.
