Potentially dating back to 1737, The Red Lion – Chester has won 2 Gold Awards at the Chester Food and Drink Festival, serving well-loved British pub cuisine. In a beautiful, ivy-enclosed building, there is a cosy log-fire for winter, and eclectic decorations such as art, candles and classic oak beams. With a view on to the eye-catching pub, you can also enjoy the food from the pretty al fresco garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Red Lion menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Red Lion ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Red Lion is just 10 minutes’ drive from Chester.
