Great Sunday lunch, excellent ale, really welcoming. Plenty of parking, and the outdoor play area would be great in the summer.

The Red Lion is situated in the village of West Deeping just outside Peterborough and en route to Stamford. We are a family run Grade 2 listed freehouse pub. There is a outside patio area where you can sit and enjoy a drink and a large enclosed play area with adventure climbing and slides for children. For those chilly winter nights we have a beautiful open fire. All food is cooked fresh when you order. Our hand cut seasoned fat chips are superb but don't take our word for it come and try for yourself. We aim to source good local produce where possible. We want families to enjoy fresh home cooked food in friendly, comfortable surroundings.
