The former White Lion Hotel had been empty and increasingly derelict for some time before it was transformed during 2014 into the Red Door Cafe and Bistro. With great food and lovely surroundings, the Red Door quickly became a busy destination cafe as well as a comfy, welcoming hang out for locals and a place for the perfect get together, family celebration, or just a Sunday coffee and a sausage sandwich with the papers. December 2015 and again in November 2017 brought change in the form of the arrival of the flooding river Lune. The water level rose to 5ft 2” in the cafe and the cellars and back yard areas were completely engulfed. We are now fully renovated after months of hard work – restoration complete – come and see us soon!
