It all started like this
Our family have been farming in the area for almost 100 years, and to link up with a local pub was a great way of promoting local produce whilst supporting and integrating with the community.
The locals of the Red Lion are a fantastic, friendly bunch who make everyone feel at home..
Welcome to the Red Lion Thorrington. Set in a quiet village on the outskirts of Colchester, The Red Lion has comfortable surroundings and atmosphere, a beautiful garden overlooking fields, and lots of parking.
Here you will find all the information you need to know about our food and drink, upcoming events and much more.
On the Farm we grow Cereals, Turf, Potatoes. Salads Onions and Carrots are
also grown in partnership with other farmers at home at Admirals and Brook Farm.
We have a Herd of friendly Pedigree Hereford Cows, which can sometimes be seen grazing David Edwards field behind the Pub.
Once you have browsed our website, George, Sue, and the team would like to welcome you, friends and family, for a drink, a bar meal, a sandwich or a meal, you will be made most welcome.
