Location and contact

We would love you to visit The Old Red Lion. The leather sofas round the log fire are so lovely on the cold autumn and winter evenings. You must come and have a meal or sit and have a drink in the Green Room, which we have recently refurbished. The Welland Valley is one of the most beautiful areas of the Midlands and there’s nothing like a summer evening stroll along one of the many footpaths and bridleways, finishing off with supper and drinks at The Old Red Lion. The spring sees the lambing season and the fields around the pub are full of them.
