Sister Pub: The Red Lion Hinxton
– let us help you party
Our services are being increasingly sought after for private events, whether for a private party in one of our pubs or a special event at home or nearby private venue.
Each one is unique and tailor-made to the specific occasion. At each pub we put on a limited number of wedding receptions, as well as special birthdays/anniversaries and family gatherings. They range from drinks & canapés to buffets, to seated four-course dinners.
If you would like to discuss any celebration coming up that you might want some help with, please do get in touch with Mike, who would be very happy to help.
Mike was recently crowned Front of House Manager of the Year. Having been organising special events for most of his career, Mike brings a wealth of experience and a particular passion to this role.
Peter is the other vital ingredient to the Red & Black team – he can deliver whatever food you and Mike dream up and he loves a challenge.
“We had a really really fantastic time so thank you very much. We were really impressed with how the day went, it was just the feel we were after and the food was lovely. We really want to thank all the staff as well, everyone was really attentive, professional and friendly, which made the occasion – so many of our guests commented on this as well so please do pass on our thanks.” Fiona and James
Alongside our own Red & Black Ale we have a great selection of craft beer. Most frequent favourites are Woodforde’s Wherry and Adnams Bitter. Other regulars include beers from such local breweries as Crafty Beers, Brandon Brewery and Nethergate.
The Black Bull is now available for weddings and party hire.
