Meal at the Red Lion

Now that places to eat and drink are allowed to reopen, we are very pleased to see Wiltshire’s pubs, restaurants and cafes opening their doors to visitors once again. With new safety measures in place (you’re likely to see one-way systems, new outdoor seating areas, hand sanitising stations and table service) Wiltshire’s places to eat and drink are ready to welcome you back! If you feel more comfortable enjoying a takeaway meal or drink, many of our restaurants, pubs and cafes are also offering this service.

Please be aware that opening hours may have changed, and cafes, restaurants and bars may all require you to book a table in advance. You may also be asked to provide contact details to help with the government’s Track and Trace scheme. Remember to abide by social-distancing guidelines and take a look at our advice on how to visit Wiltshire safely and responsibly before you arrive. Keep an eye out for the We’re Good to Go logo which certifies that a business has put in place necessary COVID-19 safety precautions.

Lots of our Wiltshire pubs and restaurants will also be taking part in the new Eat Out to Help Out scheme - so keep an eye out for these!

We will be endeavouring to keep this page up to date and adding more information as we are made aware – however please check directly with the specific business before visiting.
