A VERY WARM WELCOME AT THE RED LION, PRESTON

The pub is the heart of Preston’s community and stands proudly as the first example of a community-owned public house anywhere in the UK, having been bought from Whitbreads in the early 1980’s. Find out more.

The Red Lion still thrives today as a successful community enterprise over 35 years after the venture was originally started; an accomplishment we are all very proud of. We are supported by wonderful patrons from within the village but have loyal and regular customers from much further afield who appreciate what a real country pub can offer.

Come along and see for yourself.

Breweries

The Red Lion boasts a wonderful selection of award winning real ales, wines and spirits. Here are just some of the breweries we have on offer.

We are proud of the wonderful offering we have in terms of a freshly prepared and varied menu – much of it locally sourced. Booking is advisable.
