Welcome To The Red Lion

Situated in the heart of the picturesque village of Mawdesley, the new management team transformed the Red Lion into a modern and contemporary pub and restaurant.

From delicious, home-made food, to a superbly stocked bar - we have it all!  We are a family friendly establishment, and dogs are welcome in the bar area!  

It’s an ideal place to catch up with friends. If you need something more formal, we offer free wi-fi – ideal for that business meeting.

There really is something to suit all tastes here. Reservations are welcome, but if you’re passing by do just pop in. Nick and the team look forward to seeing you very soon!

The Food

The Red Lion prides itself on sourcing its food from local producers, and only the finest ingredients are used to prepare your meal in our kitchen. Whether you are looking for somewhere to treat the whole family, a formal dining experience, or simply a table for two, you can be sure of a friendly welcome.

We also love looking after families with small children and dogs are more than welcome in our bar area too.

And why not try one of our tasty snacks or nibbles? And if the weather’s kind, you can dine al freso at one of our outdoor tables, and just watch the world go by.

The Bar


In our fully stocked bar, you’ll always find a great range of real ales, many of them brewed close to home in the north west. 

Why not enjoy a drink whilst sat in our cosy bar area?  We have open fires in the bar area, making for the perfect setting to enjoy a drink with friends or family - including the dog!

As well as real ales - we also have a fantastic range of wines and spirits available for you to choose from.
