Inside as described by K below, very gastro, one way system, sanitizer and perspex screens all present and correct. We sat in the nice beer garden, a bit of a trudge across the car park for the staff, especially as the staff comprised the guvner coping alone mid-afternoon. Anyway once we'd worked out the drill some very nice, if ambitiously priced (£4.80), Hooky bitter arrived which we enjoyed in the sunshine.

A pleasant enough stop if you are nosing around the area and we felt perfectly safe.

Recently re-opened after a few years boarded up, this is now owned by the same people behind the nearby Joiner's Arms and is now no longer under Fuller's auspices, despite the green and gold nameboard up against the side of the building and now increases Bloxham's going concerns from two to three. Located on the A361 which bisects the village, the focus seems to be on the dry stuff and several tables were occupied by people dining and plenty of be-aproned waiting and front of house staff bustled here and there on my Sunday lunchtime visit. Beers are from the Marston's camp with Lancaster Bomber (£2 a half and good) and Top Hat - brewed for the pub and whose clip had the same logo as the new pub sign, so you can probably work out what it might really be. Clean inside as you'd expect, the only reservation was that all available tables were laid out for dining, so if the weather is inclement, you're going to feel in the way, despite the presence of a decent beer garden, but maybe this will change in time.

The Red Lion is a smart looking white painted pub that is on the main road through Bloxham.
Once inside the pub had two seperate rooms,we had a drink in the room to the right,this was a large squarish shaped room that was carpeted,the ceiling was beamed and the seating was normal tables and chairs.
The pub is a Fullers tied house and there were two real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Gales Seafarers which is not brewed in Hampshire but Chiswick in West London,this was a pretty bland drink,the other beer was London Pride.
The room to the left was out of bounds as another group of drinkers found out after getting told off for trying to use it.
The front door to the pub was locked,but the back door was open very strange!.
We thought this pub was very bland inside and a bit of a let down,on the up side there is a very large garden to the rear which looked well looked after.
