Serving beer in Needham for 180 years.
The Red Lion has been a pub for nearly two centuries. In 1836 the landlord was a certain Mr Samuel Alecock, but the building dates back to the 1780s or probably earlier. It is now a listed building and a couple of centuries of life as a pub have given it warmth and character.
The bar and restaurant has a crackling open fire, sofas and there’s a free pool table in a room off to one side. Outside, our deck area overlooks the garden and campsite and is a lovely place to sit with a cool drink on a warm summer evening.
Being a family run pub, we know that families will like the children’s play area and the pets corner with our rabbits and guinea pigs.
