The Red Lion and Manor house is privately owned and run by the Grayshon family. The Red Lion was purchased in November 1991 by Andrew and Elizabeth Grayshon, as the years have progressed Andrew and Elizabeth are now retired and ably help to look after their 10 grandchildren as well as enjoying time at their house in France. They remain in Burnsall living at the Old post office and have an active part in village and family life.
Andrew and Liz’s 4 daughters now run the Red Lion alongside their partners.
Eldest daughter Sarah organises all the weddings. Victoria is in charge of all accounts and her husband Jim is bar manager. The youngest daughters are twins Katy and Eleanor who deal with all staff, marketing and conferences and whose husbands both ably run the kitchen. Even the next generation are getting involved, with their children working front of house.
We of course have plenty of help. Our reservations manager is Rachel. Our restaurant manager is Pepa and front of house manager is Jim. If you need any assistance during your stay we or any of our friendly staff will be on hand to help out and have a chat.
