Stopped in for lunch recently. The food was very good but we really didn't like the seating area. I had read reviews so had expected something more like cosy, less like bleak. Every time the door opened it provided a blast of icy air. Our party of 3 was seated at two small round café table pushed together. The fellow... More

We enjoyed a flavorful lunch at this cozy pub. There is so much to see while dining. It takes you back in time while offering solid menu choices. THE Cesar Salad was delightful as were the burgers. I will return next visit to Stockbridge.

The specials are great and very reasonably priced. Desert looked amazing, but I was too full from dinner. I ate alone and the atmosphere was quiet, which I really liked. It was below zero outside but the Pub was very cozy. I wish I had stayed for the music, but I had another place to be.

A true pub atmosphere with live music every night. The waitress was very nice and appropriately efficient. The food was very mediocre.

A one of a kind pub that has all the atmosphere you could ever hope for. Good selection of draft beer, a well-varied menu (we enjoyed the portobello/eggplant panini), live music, and optional trivia game among the guests make this an enjoyable place to unwind. We enjoyed a small table next to the fire - perfect!

Lovely pub, with pieces of nostalgia hanging everywhere. Service was great. Portions adequate. A little pricey. Food was tasty and nicely presented. Pub is a more casual choice than the dining room. Same menu is served in both rooms.

If you are looking for dining options, we do not suggest the resaturant at the Red Lion Inn. We had a very bad experience there, with both the food and staff...it's a historic building, but they could definitely benefit from some major updating to their dining areas. You will have a much nicer dinner experience at one of the other... More

We went down to The Lion's Den on our first night in Stockbridge and had a blast. Tried a couple of the local beers and split the homemade hot dog while listening to an amazing jazz singer. It was a lively yet cozy little spot and we definitely enjoyed ourselves!
