Welcome to the Red Lion at Northmoor

A community owned pub with rooms

Ian, Lisa and their team offer you a warm welcome to The Red Lion at Northmoor – A Community owned pub with bed and breakfast. Purchased by the local community in 2014 and set amid picturesque Oxfordshire countryside, The Red Lion is a pub full of character and charm, with log fires, beamed ceilings and pretty gardens. The menu features classic British dishes made with seasonal and home grown produce from the kitchen garden and sourced from local farmers and the bar is well-stocked with a selection of real ales showcasing the best local breweries.

Our brand-new trio of Shepherd’s Huts – The Den, The Nest and The Burrow are now available to offer guests a unique bed and breakfast experience. All fitted out with contemporary furnishings and all the amenities you need for the perfect country escape.

"We had a family lunch together at this super pub in Northmoor. It was suitably Covid-safe, principally because we were outside under cover, and yet warmed by a gas heater in the centre of the eating area."


"Went for pizza night on Tuesday and it was delicious. It was fresh stone baked pizza. The service is friendly and there are tables outside which are lovely under the trees"


"Excellent accommodation in beautiful setting. Lisa and team very helpful. Would recommend a stay in the pub grounds."


"Came here with all of the family for Sunday lunch and we couldn’t fault it. Beautiful roasts, drinks and service. If we were coming back on holiday in the area we would certainly visit again."


"After trying the majority of pubs in Oxfordshire, I can quite easily say, this is our new No1 place to eat. Large portion sizes and everything is cooked fresh."

"Lovely pub in beautiful countryside with the Thames footpath a short walk away. Staff were lovely, polite & helpful. Shepherd's huts are lovely with the most comfortable bed."

Hilary K

"Loved our visit here we stayed in the shepherds huts and had a lovely meal and drinks in the Red lion. The shepherds huts were lovely, cosy and comfortable and the bathrooms are of a very high standard."

Kiera McMillan

"A simultaneously enticing and welcoming ambience aided by both a glamorous "shabby chic" tent and a mature, extensive beer garden. Food was delicious and nutritious; staff friendly and efficient."

Mark Law

"Wonderfully done out to a really high standard. When we arrived the hut was immaculate and we felt at home immediately. The pub onsite also has great food and beers."


"Sparkling clean, comfortable and a lot more spacious than we expected. Lisa was very lovely and we’d recommend staying here to anyone :)"


"Top quality shepherds hut in immaculate garden of a village pub. Service and attention to detail was faultless and food and drink in the pub was perfect"


"Beautiful stay, lovely breakfast brought to you each morning and a great location for exploring the cotswolds or about a 25 minute taxi into Oxford city centre"

"This place is amazing - food in the pub is amazing and the huts themselves exceeded our expectations. Breakfast was yummy and the huts were so cosy, even on a cold night. Dried wet walking gear. Top tip - don't put too much wood on the fire as it can get too warm!"
