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.

“Cellar local bands”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Located in the cellar of the Inn, it offers pub food, and usually
not very enjoyable music. At least there's no cover charge!

“Great place to relax and have a drink.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The Lion's Den Pub is a low-key choice for good food and drinks and live music. The bartenders are friendly and attentive. The live music is always enjoyable. There is a solid mix of locals and weekenders, which gives the pub a friendly and eccelectic vibe.

“Off and on”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The food is ok but we go to the Den for music, and that is usually very good.
The service is fair, nothing special.
They do have a very good bread pudding dessert and the turkey special on Sundays is ok.
It is located below the historic Red Lion Inn, an Inn that has served travelers for over 200 years.
No cover for music all year round.

“Good Food, Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

Old-style New England pub atmosphere with a good menu makes for a great experience. Featuring simple comfort food with excellent value. Good beer and wine selections with some excellent craft brews on tap. Service efficient. Will eat here again when we're in South Berkshire.

“Live music and great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

It was a cold winter night and it was very cozy by the fireplace at the Lion's Den Pub. We enjoyed clam chowder and delicious warm grilled ham and cheese. The live music was excellent! Such a great spot. Awesome that this place is hundreds of years old!
