A bit about us…

Established in 2004 by friends and founders Mark Robson, Mark Williams and Julian Clarke, Red Mist Leisure has grown from a single pub to a family of 12 unique pubs and inns across Surrey and Hampshire. Using their previous experience and journeys on various paths in hospitality, including Royal Ascot, the Epsom Derby, American fine dining and the British Grand Prix, the three set upon a new adventure, fuelled by their passion for a great British pub experience and combining superb, local food and drink, with fantastic, friendly service.

As the business grew and more pubs were taken under its wing, saving several from closing their doors completely, so too did the team grow, with a group of talented and eager individuals coming together to strive towards one vision; to deliver the most enjoyable and authentic pub experience.

In 2021, Red Mist became part of the Red Lion Holdings group, a specialist hospitality investment group with a growing collection of beautiful venues and a wealth of experience and expertise to help that continued growth and development towards excellence.

What you will find in every Red Mist pub is a warm welcome, a delightful and comfortable surrounding and a delicious choice of food and drink, sourced locally wherever possible. Behind the scenes you’ll find a team of people ensuring every element of your visit is the best it can possibly be, while supporting the local community and upholding strong ethics and values, working together to bring you a memorable and enjoyable experience, every time.
