There's plenty to enjoy on the Red Lion menu from traditional pub grub such as home made pie of the day, to classic pub grills, sandwiches & baguettes along as a selection of vegetarian & children’s dishes, through to traditional English puddings like apple & rhubarb crumble, chocolate fudge cake & much more, accompanied by good wines at sensible prices, or

The Red Lion Parlour in 1925

Stacks Image 92175

The Red Lion was built back in the 16th Century and originally consisted of two cottages before later being converted into one large house. This rebuild took place in the 17th Century and used the old framework.

In the 18th century it became known as the Black Boy Pub, where
cock fighting was provided to attract aristocratic clients.

A journal written in 1883 refers to the old Witham Fair, during which two greasy poles were set outside of the Red Lion, for which their use can be left to your imagination.
