The Red Lion at Handcross re-opens

Following the disastrous fire in 1978, the joint licensees, Bill Farleigh and his son-in-law, Gonzalo Burillo, decided to open the doors after a couple of months in the largely un-damaged part of the Red Lion, being the old ostler’s cottage next to the car park. However, this was on a very small scale, somewhat akin to a bistro.
Meanwhile the major renovation works to the rest of the building continued apace, and on 3rd November 1979 a party was held to celebrate the re-opening.
