Red Lion, Drayton

The Red Lion was sympathetically refurbished November 2014 and is a listed building situated next to the Post Office in the centre of Drayton, a suburb of Norwich, some four to five miles away from the town centre. Historically it has been a coaching inn since 1768 and today it is attractively adorned with flowers. This is a great place to meet with friends offering sharing platters, fizz Friday offers, Sky Sports with several TV screens. This comfortable venue, which rebranded to the new Golden Oak Inns concept in Autumn 2014, is consistently busy, very popular and well known. We welcome a good mixture of people popping in for a drink with friends and diners. Many are regular locals, others just happen to be passing. All our food is freshly prepared serving up great steaks, mixed grills, sharing platters and also our great carvery with a choice of roasts. We have a bar menu and specials board alongside. The carvery is served in the restaurant but the bar is a useful area when we need it, which is quite often! Be sure to call in when you are next passing and enjoy a meal or sample a quality drink with us. You will be most welcome.
