Coronavirus Update

The Red Lion Pub and B&B

We are now open! 

Since the 17th of May we have been welcoming back all of our regulars and new visitors back to the Red Lion in Matlock.

Do you have anything in place to make it a safer place to visit?

Of course. The government provided a document of guidelines that businesses like ours can implement to lessen the spread of the Covid19 virus.

We have complied with these guidelines very strictly. 

NHS track and trace.

If you have the NHS App, please scan the QR code when you enter, if not, just fill in the card and post in the bucket please. This is mandatory. 

Table Service.

Speaks for itself. Come in, do the above and park your bum. We will come over and take your order. We can also take payments from there.


When you are on the Red Lion premises, you must always wear a mask until you are seated. You can take it off then, but don't forget to put it back on when you go to the loo.

If you are exempt, please let the member of staff on the door know this rather than them guess it.

We have removed a lot of the tables and chairs inside to ensure there is sufficient distance between groups. Our staff regularly clean their hands and sanitise them between processes. We sanitise the toilets more regularly. We have a 'one entrance at the front route through the pub. We limit outside smoking to the rear of the pub. There is a no vaping policy inside. 

All of this is designed to ensure you not only have a relaxed and comfortable experience, but you can feel assured we are doing our part to control the virus.

Do I need to book a table?

You don't have to but it may be advisable.


If you have any further questions about steps we are making to ensure the safety of the staff and visitors or general enquiries, please contact us..
