The Red Lion Pub
Formerly a working public house in Stoke-on-Trent, our Red Lion Pub has been rebuilt here at the Museum, brick by brick, and is a popular part of our recreated street scene. Open daily, currently offering snacks, hot drinks and a fine selection of cask ales, the pub is popular with all our visitors, including our furry four legged dog friends, who are made welcome. See the Major’s Bar Drinks and Snacks Price List 2022
Our group menus are based on a minimum number of 24 and maximum number of 60 diners and are subject to availability. These need to pre-booked at least two weeks prior to arrival. Please see the group menus below:
In recent years the pub has been gathering a following all of its own, as people come especially to sample the wide variety of real ales, the majority of which are sourced locally. In 2014 we had a visit from the Matlock and Dales CAMRA club, who were intrigued to find out more about the Red Lion. The Rural Real Ale Drinkers have featured us in their newsletter ‘Rurad 0415’.
