The Red Lion Inn is situated just off the Thames path as it passes through historic Cricklade. The pub dates back to the early 1600s and there are still many historic features playing a part in creating the perfect British pub atmosphere.

The Red Lion combines contemporary features in its stand alone restaurant with all the things that make pubs so much of an institution.

Roaring log fires, historic bric-a-brac, 9 real ales and ciders, unique guest lagers and beers from around the world, a fabulous pub garden and a warm welcome. These are all parts of what makes the pub so special. With the steady decline of the classic British pub the Red Lion stands out as one of a few true free houses, you only need to look at our daily changing list of beers to see this.

Food and eating out are very much a part of our society now and the Red Lion offers something for everyone from classic pub food to modern British dishes. Whether you are looking for a casual relaxed meal in the surrounds of a buzzing atmospheric pub or something a little more elegant in the adjoining restaurant we can cater for you.

Take a look at our sample menus to give you an idea of what to expect.

If you are weary after a long walk along the Thames path or just fancy a night away in warm and friendly surroundings we have 5 fantastic, newly decorated bedrooms available. Please see 'Accommodation' for more information.
