Description: The Lion's Den pub, located downstairs at The Red Lion Inn, offers entertainment seven nights a week, and never a cover charge. There's different entertainment each night, with regular appearances by local performers including David Grover, the Sun Mountain Fiddler, and the Housatonic Philharmonic, offering everything from acoustic folk to R&B, and reggae to the blues. Some nationally recognized performers have been known to grace our humble pub stage from time to time - James Taylor, Lauren Ambrose and Roger Salloom among them.On chilly nights ask for a table by the fireplace and enjoy a genuine pint of ale or stout, a glass of your favorite wine, or a mug of hot mulled cider - all accompanied by our classic pub fare.The Lion's Den is open (until 1 a.m. on weekends), with entertainment from 9 p.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday and entertainment from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday. House guests can access the Lion's Den through the Tavern, or by entering beneath the red awning on Main Street.

I have been many times and the atmosphere is cool and the music is usually entertaining. But time and time again, I try to like the food and it's horrible. This last time, we asked the waiter what the best thing on the menu was and he was stumped. He finally said "I like the hummus." When pressed further he... More

A quaint, dark little pub below the Red Lion Inn. Some traditional and creative pub fare, with plenty of fresh, local ingredients. Highly recommend the "hot dogs" on the menu -- but be hungry: you get two of them, much longer than your average ballpark dog, and rather than the standard frank, they are delicious, mildly spiced locally made sausages....

Lions Den is located inside the Red Lion Inn. Small pub with a great atmosphere. Serves food and drinks. Also live music nightly with no cover charge. Limited seating so get there early. Front desk provides you with a line up of the various bands for the week. Cool little place. Went twice. Very enjoyable. Again excellent service

stopped in here for a quick bite to enjoy the music. We had a sandwich and soup. Both items were delicious -especially the onion soup. Much better than one we had in a finer area restaurant.

The limited menu was no big deal. There is live music every evening and we had the good fortune to hear world class jazz musicians perform the night we were there! Awesome experience!

In the basement fo the Red Lyon Inn, the service is always friendly and the food is reasonable and tasty. The Red Lyon sources alot fo produce locally, so you can always be assured of a great meal. In addition there is music here nightly, so it is a great place for all four seasons in the Berkshires

Just what the name describes, a Pub under the Red Lion Inn, not pretentious at all, Good pub food and wait staff kept us with beer and cheer all evening. The local musicians were entertaining with original music and traditional folksy blues. It made for nice evening entertainment.

I walked here to listen to music one evening, a very loud place where you couldn't hear the music, very dark and dated! The food was good and service was friendly

We were having a special meal and chose the Lion's Den because of its good reputation. As my wife was eating her salad she discovered a fly in the dressing!. . . the waitress brought the manager who timidly said he was sorry but said "things like this happen" in a restaurant. Their attitude was cavalier and only mildly circumspect... More
