Safe Transport:

Although our courtesy bus is no longer available due to an accident in early April, management and staff wish to encourage safe transport options. We will be happy to call a taxi for any patrons requiring one.


In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, The Lion Richlands has introduced specific safety measures in an effort to safeguard the health, safety and wellbeing of persons attending our venue.

The safety measures that are being and have been introduced are intended to minimise the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus, but this risk cannot be completely eradicated. Visitors enter The Lion Richlands at their own risk.
