The Red Lion Inn at Stathern has been named Leicestershire & Rutland Dining Pub of the Year in the Good Pub Guide 2016.
The Red Lion, which won the same accolade in the 2015 Guide, was praised in the 2016 book for its service, ambience, cooking and drinks.
Ben Jones, joint-proprietor of The Red Lion with Sean Hope, said: “To win this two years in a row is fantastic. The whole team works very hard to ensure The Red Lion Inn is a great country pub. This award is the culmination of everyone’s hard work.
“Our aim is for the Red Lion to be a proper pub offering a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone to enjoy, serving great food and great drink. Quality remains very important to us.”
The pub has held a Michelin Bib Gourmand every year since 2003.
