the place is dark and dingy. Seems to attract local barflies. The food is only okay and it's way over-priced.

You access the Lion's Den from outside in the front of the Red Lion Inn or from what feels like a speakeasy door in the bar on the main floor. The ceilings are low, and it's a cozy feel. The menu isn't extensive, basic pub food, but I enjoyed the food and the beer. Really, I enjoyed the whole experience.

Very limited menu but the food and service were good. Good place for a quick bite to eat without having to get dressed up.

I already reviewed the Lions Den two years ago, but it deserves another positive review because it has maintained its fun quality with good local entertainment and decent tavern food. Since i reviewed it in detail years ago and nothing big has changed, I won't be lengthy this time. But whenever I revisit a place and it has retained its... More

The Lions Den is a fun place to catch some local music and have some good pub grub. The menu is limited compared to what is served upstairs in the pub and main dining room. They have nightly specials for $14 and a nice selection of beers. They also have Peter, the bartender that makes every visit to the Lions... More

Our family was passing through and heard about this historic town. We were promptly greeted by our waitress who took our drink orders and also brought us each a glass of ice water. We had the cheese appetizer which was out of the this world. We chose a regional cheese and it was delicious. For dinner I had the grilled... More

I had a Chicken Sausage with Broccoli Rabe on a Roll. It was fine but nothing great. It was dark in the building and kind of tight for seating. It served the purpose since I was hungry but it is not a place that I would go out of my way to go to eat. Restaurants in general in Stockbridge... More
