Paul, Lynn and Jake (our son) Larkin will endevour to provide you with a warm & friendly welcome
 to our 15th Century coaching inn.

We're a traditional Lakeland pub and B&B in the prettiest village in the Lake District providing a warm welcome and local food, honestly priced.

We have just completed our ninth year here at The Red Lion (where does the time go!) after many years of running managed houses, from the North West (The Peacock, Nantwich; The Harvest Mouse, Heswall; The Black Dog, Waverton; The Hotel Victoria, New Brighton; The Hinderton Arms, Neston) to the North East (The Black Bull, Wardley; The New Tavern, Stokesley; The Five Alls, Stockton~on~Tees; The Waggon Team, Gateshead).

Although the first six years were probably one of the toughest times to stay in business, the last 3 years have been pretty challenging too! We are still loving living in what is arguably the prettiest village in the Lake District.

The Red Lion is fast becoming an extremely popular Lake District Inn where you will find comfortable & clean accommodation that is full of character, traditional home cooked food, a wide range of wines & spirits and superbly kept 'Casque Marqued' cask ales from around the area.

Why not while away the hours in a cheerful, relaxed & informal atmosphere with friends old & new.

Be warned, a sense of humour is a must!

If you have any queries or questions, please don't hesitate to call either Paul or Lynn on 015394 36213
