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.
