Situated in the quiet, picturesque village of Slinfold, the Red Lyon is a pub with restaurant and B and B accommodation. Some parts of the building date from the 14th century. Comfortable, attractive wooden-floored bar area. Beers served are Fullers London Pride and Greene King IPA.

Large garden with BBQ for hire, canopied patio area (with gas-heaters for that chilly autumn evening) and play area for children. The pub is open all day.

How to get there

By car
Slinfold is a small attractive village west of Horsham/Broadbridge Heath between the A264 and A281.

The best route from Horsham is to cycle along the Guildford Road. Turn left on Hills Farm Lane and then right onto the cycle path that passes Tanbridge School. The path goes over the main A24 and finishes in the Tesco supermarket car park. Cycle out of the car park towards Broadbridge Heath and turn left on the main road [can be busy].

At the next roundabout, turn left towards Billingshurst and Five Oaks. After a short distance, turn right at the Toyota garage into Lyons Road [signposted to Slinfold]. Cycle along this road for 1.25 miles [2 km] into Slinfold village and the pub is on the left.

Suggested cycling routes from here

With your back to the pub, turn right and take the first road on the right [Hayes Lane]. After a short distance [1 km or 0.75 miles], the Downs Link bridleway crosses the road. Turn left on the bridle path towards Christ's Hospital and the Bax Castle.

or turn right on the bridle path towards Rudgwick.

Both these routes feature some nice off-road cycling.

Very slow service and the £9.95 two course lunch, scampi and chips consisted of five small pieces of scampi. When mentioned to waitress she said the £9.95 menu is only a half portion! This was not stated anywhere, surely a trade description issue. Avoid.

I recently had a birthday party at the Red Lyon for 30 adults and 14 children. The pub provided a lovely BBQ with lots of choice and very good value. We all had a super afternoon, it was so well organised by the manager Tot and the staff were fantastic...

Had a fantastic afternoon in the beer garden. Friendly staff and very good quality food. I think the pub is under new management. Well worth a visit.
