An attractive, homely stonebuilt pub in a little terrace facing the village green in a village popular with walkers. A passage leads into the pub, with spaces either side:to the left an antechamber with open fire leads into the bar, again, an open fire, some tables and chairs and a dogbed, where the barman’s dog held court.Going further into the pub is another area laid up for dining and some kind of games room.
Our visit was mid afternoon on a Monday early in December, so the pub was fairly quiet:even so a few drinkers and belated diners created a busy atmosphere. The food was generous-I think burgers were in order that day, and the beer list was equally suitable: Abbeydale’s Absolution, Barnsley Bitter from Oakwell Brewery, and Bradfield Farmer’s Blonde from West Yorkshire.I’m old enough to remember the controversy surrounding the closure of the original Oakwell Brewery,though I was never fortunate enough to try the famous Barnsley Bitter in its fighting heyday. The present manifestation is a very pleasant berry rich session beer that I would be pleased to be able to drink on a regular basis.
The Red Lion is a cracking little pub in an area well blessed with good pubs: good beer and a late opening kitchen make it a friend to walkers and locals alike. We would definitely return if back in the area.

This is pub is a true gem, trad stone built building with low ceilings overlooking the village green. Staff very welcoming, four ales on handpump, two from Thornbridge, one from Oakwell and an Abbeydale. Next time would like to try the food, looks good.

A rare example of a former restaurant converted back to a pub but still with a strong food influence (table bookings recommended). 3 rooms, the largest being the bar area, but tight inside and low doorways. Plenty of tables to sit outside in a very pleasant setting on the village green.

On handpull there was Buxton Kinder Sunset, Abbeydale Absolution, Oakwell Barnsley Bitter and Blue Monkey BG Sips.
