​The Red Lion is an old coaching house situated in the center of Whitworth Square where we are surrounded by 5 blue English Heritage plaques.

We are beautifully located with great surroundings. Just up the hill from the pub is open moorland with the Mary Towneley Loop, the Pennine Bridle Way, the Rossendale Way and other great walks or rides to explore.

The Red Lion is family-friendly and a comfortable, welcoming place for cyclists, walkers, dogs, horses and their owners. 

Once inside you will find a whole range of drinks too choose from. We have four real ale pumps on the go serving one regular of black sheep bitter and 3 rotating guest ales. On the taps we have firm favourites including fosters, carling, birra morretti, strongbow and guinness extra cold.

Our wine list which is specially selected from Yorkshire vinters, consists of wines not found on the high street or supermarket. The fridges are stocked with a large choice of flavoured ciders and bottled beer. If you're after something non-alcoholic we have a choice of soft drinks including appletisers, fusions, fentimans and frobisher juices. to tempt you further we stock a fine selection of whiskies, spirits and gin & tonics.  

The kitchen is new and refurbished producing tasty home cooked food using locally sourced ingredients, combining the usual pub classics with something a bit different. Our fantastic Sunday lunch always goes down a treat after a long walk over those moors. 

Our bed & breakfast rooms have recently been refurbished too and can accommodate families, couples or the single traveller. We have 5 en suite letting rooms all reasonably priced and including a hearty breakfast during the weekend.

Throughout the year we have lots on, live music, a monthly quiz, theme nights and bbqs. Serving bar snacks, food and offering sky sports for all your sports entertainment, we find theres something for everyone. ​
