Down the stairs, enter a rustic, cozy atmosphere. A good place for lunch. There are plenty of tables and the bar seats 10+/-. The food is very good and the staff is prompt & courteous.

Two servers and a crowd mentioned we waited for service and food. Soup was not and tasted okay. Evening special was tasteless and very sparingly sauced spaghetti with mushy pasta. Disappointed on every level.

Live music every night. Apple pie is their specialty but was ruined by heating in microwave. This is not the upstairs dining room and the staff is not the same.

Yes, we were in town for a bachelorette weekend, but we were looking for a fairly low-key after dinner scene. The Lion's Den was perfect. Our group took over a large booth in the back corner and enjoyed the live music. The bar was busy but not packed, with a good mix of locals and out-of-towners.. Great music, good Moscow... More

We visit every night when in town. Live music and pub fare. Try the pizza and a hot chocolate chip cookie. The house specialty is a hot cider in the winter. Mingle with the locals, enjoy great music, dine in leisure.

Great to have a nice place to listen to music at the end of the day in our hotel! Friday nights music wasn't much, some members of the band had a bit much to drink.. last night was very good lots of original music and good vocals and harmony, Woodford way.

Comfy pub in the basement of the famous Red Lion Inn. Opted for this casual spot instead of the main dining room because we wanted a more casual atmosphere. The fact that live music was included was a big plus. We were immediately greeted by a friendly server. I opted for the chicken sausage. It was inedible. My friend's turkey... More

convenient and has extended/late night hours, but the acoustics are horrible, and the pub food average.

Went at 9:00 PM for a post-theatre supper. Crowded, so we were forced to sit up front, next to the musician. Not a good idea if you want to talk. I had the Cobb Salad. Very tasty despite no avocado and very little bacon. My husband had grilled cheese with ham and roasted peppers. I thought it was great. The... More

This is much less expensive than the restaurants upstairs and it is open later (that is, past 9:00). There is live entertainment. The service is excellent. But the popular items on the menu may sell out early, which is disappointing.

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.
