The Red Lion located off the A20 between Ashford and Maidstone is a beautiful old English country inn situated in 4 acres of superb surroundings. It was originally built as a thatched farm house in 1562 during the reign of Elizabeth I. A six-day ale and cider license was issued in 1709 at which point the thatch roof was removed. 1762 saw a Wine & Spirit license granted and the property was registered as an Inn under the title of The Red Lion. Used as Customs & Excise posting house where mail was collected and sorted before being distributed to the outlying areas by post boys. A delicious gastropub menu is served six days a week, with traditional classics and other tasty dishes prepared from fresh, locally sourced ingredients and homemade roast every Sunday.
