WELCOME TO The Red Lion IN Dodleston

leaves-linebreak.png

We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.

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.

Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.

Planning your Christmas celebrations? Our chefs have created special menus for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and during the festive period for you and loved ones to enjoy.  Take a look here and book your table for Christmas today.

We look forward to welcoming you!
