Carl Urmston left this review about The Red Lion

Recently reopened under the auspices of the team who run the impressive Top Lock nearby, this is a pleasantly ungentrified village local just off the main road. It consists of 2 main rooms, an open bar room and a games room on a slightly higher level with a pool table and darts. Furnishings are mostly traditional, with wall-mounted leather sofas and tables/stools. A real fire can be found. Beer-wise, the pub serves 3 changing real ales, which included the excellent Coniston Bluebird and Hawkshead Bitter on my visit. Local CAMRA leaflets are available. Service friendly on my mid-afternoon visit, with only a few others in the bar. This is one to head to when in the area in my opinion.

The Red Lion is a traditional village pub in the heart of Wheelton, with an excellent food offering and a wide rage of spirits, wines and cask conditioned ales. Our menu features traditional favourites like Steak & Ale Pie with homemade chips to Ostrich & Kangaroo Steaks for those of you with more adventurous taste buds.
