Who we are

New Dawn Pubs was created in 2022 by the original founders of Red Mist Leisure, the award-winning pub company established and run for 18 years by friends Mark, Mark and Julian.

Following the acquisition of that business, Mark Robson, Chair of the British Institute of Innkeeping, has lead a team with over 100 years of experience in hospitality, to set up New Dawn Pubs with 4 of their original venues; The Royal Exchange in Lindford, The Rose & Crown in Upper Farringdon, The Castle Inn in Farnham, and The Red Lion on Odiham High Street.

This smaller collection of unique pubs, has enabled Mark and the team to get back to doing what they love; serving the communities they reside in with great food and drink, and supporting local businesses, suppliers, makers and growers.
