Dear Friends and Customers,
It is will a very heavy heart that I want to announce the closure of our restaurant. We have served our wonderful meals for three years which is an achievement that I am proud of and it has made my dream come true. We have always maintained high standards and for the last 2 years we have been in the top 10 restaurants in Powys which is no mean feat for a small pub in Knighton. For a very brief period this year we even topped that particular table beating off the experiences of some great restaurants including those with Michelin ratings. I think that counts as success.
The Red Lion will continue to provide Bed and Breakfast accommodation and do its part for the walkers and the many visitors to our town. We will keep it looking smart because the worst thing we could do was to close completely and have another Knighton landmark closed to public. We plan to still be a relaxing stay for those who come through the door.
I could say that all good things come to an end, but apart from being a bit cheesy I would rather say that all good efforts deserve a new start. Cath and I are going to work on the next phase of our hectic lives and two things are really important; We will have more time with our family and friends and some time to get ourselves back to good health.
Thank you so much for your custom over the last three years. We have had great times, lots of laughs and you have made us feel welcome as part of a super community. We have not gone away so we will continue to reap the benefits of the Knighton hospitality.
We’re going to be holding a ‘Regulars night’ on Thursday 27th September from 8pm to celebrate our time in Knighton with our customers support. We’d love to see you there.
With much love.
Neil and Cath
