About the Pub

A former Admiral Taverns pub which had been closed, the Red Lion was fortunate in becoming a free house under private ownership in 2009. It's homely and attractive inside and is sufficiently spacious to be able to cater for both diners and local drinkers. There are three public areas, a public bar at the front, a snug and a conservatory to the rear providing the dining space. The ambience is very much influenced by a low beamed interior (not always original!), a log burner and various old furnishing. Beer was being brewed here in the 19th century, and the tradition was revived when the Longden Brewing Company produced its first brew (Golden Arrow) in April 2013. The brewery was housed in the converted stable to the right of the pub but unfortunately brewing ceased in May 2017. The pub was once a part of the extensive local estate of the Shrewsbury & Wem Brewery. New ownership from March 2017, so bear in mind some of these details may change
