Victoria and David Harber with daughter Éowyn welcome you to The Red Lion pub in Overton, a venue with 300 years of history... and a more recent sprinkling of JRR Tolkien.
Victoria is an award-winning hospitality manager with 30 years experience in making people feel welcome at venues from small pubs to large event venues.
With his first pub job in 1990, David says he has learned that the key to successful pub management is "agreeing with the wife".
The Red Lion is a popular stop for visitors to the Bombay Sapphire distillery, which is a 20 minute walk down the road (and 40 minutes back!).
We are also the village's exclusive home of 'The Lionheart' and Brighton's favourite tipple, Tuaca (read more here).
Victoria and David (no, not the Beckhams) welcome you to this beautiful village pub in north west Hampshire.
The Tripadvisor #1 restaurant in Overton, we are proud to serve quality food, a range of cask ales and provide live music and the occasional fun quiz.
Voted Pub of the Year 2023 by readers of the Basingstoke Gazette and Andover Advertiser we host Free Music Friday's to the village each week as well as our potentially world-famous Sunday meat draw.
We hope you'll come and experience our offerings and let us know whether you agree with our customers that we really do serve an exceptional homecooked Sunday Lunch.
Oh, and Lord of Rings fans must 'ask about Aragorn'
