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 serving hot and cold food, 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.
We apologise for the fact that on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th September the pub will be closed whilst a new boiler is installed. You can still purchase drinks (including alcoholic drinks) and snacks from Rita’s Tearooms on these days.
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’.
