About Tom Laithwaite

Tom, youngest son of Tony and Barbara Laithwaite, now taking over as our Company Chairman. Worked several years in Australia, helped build the new RedHeads winery. Heavily involved recently in bringing the Red Lion pub, Peppard, back from the dead.

The Red Lion

Our village ‘local’ reopens after over 3 years shut!

In 2018 the Red Lion in Peppard shut. The landlord just walked away. It remained untouched; a fully-licensed Marie Celeste, until my mate James called me to say the brewery were no longer looking for a tenant but wanted to sell the place…lock, stock and several barrels of very old beer.
