The Red Lion in Madley is a wonderful place to loose yourself. Come with friends or family and stay for lunch or enjoy an evening meal. The atmosphere is very unique set in a historic listed building. Circa 16th century. We have a lovely lounge complete with roaring open fire and leather chesterfields. A garden room which is looks out onto our patio and beer gardens. A bar complete with a snug perfect for conversations and laughter. Our service is exceptional with great meals including home-cooked meals , English olde pub feel and new inspired Canadian dishes. We are children and dog friendly but ask that your dogs be happy and socialised. we have a great parking lot ( free) and offer 8 letting rooms all ensuite. We are a family run business and you are always welcome.
