The Red Lion
Church Road, Dodleston, Chester, Cheshire, CH4 9NG 01244 661636
A country pub near you oozing rural charm and rustic character.
An 18th Century map suggests The Red Lion was established as far back as 1737, though then it was known as "The Red Lyon". Our quiet and peaceful history was interrupted in the autumn of 1845 when the inn became the scene of a battle between angry Irish and English farm labourers. More recently, we have won a Gold Award at the Chester Food and Drink Festival Awards 2007 and 2008.
A country pub near you oozing rural charm and rustic character, our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar. Soak up the sun in our pub beer garden, with plenty of seating, shaded tables and outdoor dining available.
