Pub wins food award in first year

A PUB in Britwell Salome has won a competition to find the country’s best roast, less than a year after

A PUB in Britwell Salome has won a competition to find the country’s best roast, less than a year after it opened.

The Red Lion, which is run by Andrew Hill and Eilidh Ferguson, beat more than 300 pubs to take the prize in the Morning Advertiser awards.

The couple, who have been together for nine years, won several awards when they ran the Half Moon in Cuxham but said they were not interested in more accolades when they took over the Red Lion.

However, Miss Ferguson said they were delighted at their latest accolade. She said: “It has given everyone such a boost. As it’s a trade award, it means that people in the industry will know about us so is great recognition of what we do.”

The pub’s pork roast is made from meat produced at Red Lion Farm opposite.

The couple will be awarded a trophy at a celebratory lunch held at the Royal Oak, Paley Street, on Monday.

The Red Lion used to be called the Goose and was Michelin-starred when it was run by Ryan Simpson, who now runs Orwells in Shiplake.
