Welcome to the Redlion

Lee and Lisa Sainsbury, accompanied by their young family purchased the business at The Red Lion in Wareham in January 2011 when the building was closed due to disorder, in extremely poor repair and infested with small creatures (and not the cute kind!).

After 6 months of hard refurbishment we opened our 8 ensuite bed and breakfast rooms, bar, snug, courtyard and restaurant. For the last 6 years we have continued on a planned programme of works, increasing our rooms to our total now of 12 rooms, including doubles, twins, family rooms and a family suite.

We work hard to always do the best we can for our guests and hope to have created a welcoming, professional atmosphere for a quiet coffee, a bite to eat, business trip or a short break exploring all that the wonderful Purbecks has to offer.

Please refer to the pages within this site for further information about our rooms, menu, bar, location, what’s on and some photos to give you an overview of the lovely place that we call home. If we haven’t answered any of your questions here or if you would like to talk to a “human” please do call us and we will do our very best to help.


Make sure you “like” our facebook page for weekly information and updates. Just search “Red Lion Wareham”.

We look forward to meeting you
