The Red Lion Water End

Pub and restaurant between Berkhamsted and Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire


  • Garden
  • Wireless Broadband

The Red Lion at Water End is a modern interpretation of an original Public House... a warm and friendly meeting place, serving great food and drink all day to local people, businesses, families and visitors.

The Red Lion combines comfort, atmosphere and style in a building that dates back to the early 1700's. The original listed building has been renovated sympathetically to create a warm and cosy bar with open fires and the more modern part of the building showcasing Oakman Inns & Restaurants' signature open kitchen and airy and contemporary restaurant. For the warmer months, this opens into a stylish outside paved area for alfresco dining.

Join us for breakfast, morning coffee or tea, and a selection of fresh cakes and pastries. 

Lunch and Dinner. Our Mediterranean-inspired food menus offer an appetising range of dishes to suit all tastes and requirements, from bar snacks and light lunches to more substantial dinner choices, including a daily specials board.    The restaurant menu is changed twice yearly to reflect the seasons, and features newly-created dishes as well as classic favourites. Our unique charcoal Josper Oven infuses a delicious chargrilled flavour to our fresh meat and fish dishes, is a distinguishing element of our food menu. The Red Lion also boasts an authentic wood-fired pizza oven which is used to create genuine Italian handmade pizzas.

With an open kitchen running the length of the restaurant, you can enjoy watching your dishes being prepared fresh to order. We also offer a special children’s menu, and cater for a range of dietary requirements.

We also offer an extensive drinks menu, comprising a wide array of wines, real ales, bottled and draught beers, and an exciting selection of cocktails.  A choice of freshly ground coffees, teas and soft drinks are available all day, as well as fresh, homemade cakes and pastries.
