About the Pub

Originally a coaching Inn – the Red Lion Hotel dating from c1720 the Lion no longer performs that function and some of the property has been sold off, supposedly it once stretched to the corner of High St though the adjoining shop next door bears the name Lion as well. An outdoor drinking area for smokers is found down the ex carriageway & arch, inside the current landlord markets it as a Newtown’s top sports pub and sky screens and sport tv abound. The bar is located on the left hand side and towards the backs there is raised area which has been given over to Karaoke and Discos at the weekend. Recently the one hand pump has had its badge steadfastly turned around and it appears the serving of real ale has been given up.
