The Red Lion comprises a detached period property that has been Listed Grade II for its historical importance. The property occupies a prominent position on the A417 less than half a mile to the east of the village on the junction leading to Ampney St Mary and Quenington.
It has been fondly run as an award winning CAMRA ale house for many years providing locals a friendly and traditional hostelry. It has now ceased trading.
The property sits within grounds of 2.68 acres (1.09ha) currently set out as car park and paddock land. Within the ground lies a charming small Cotswold stone outbuilding with adjoining shelter.
The Red Lion has been constructed of natural stone elevations beneath a pitched Cotswold slate roof with later addition providing a double storey extension of reconstituted stone. The accommodation briefly comprises entrance hall with access to the public and saloon bars, internal door leading to the private quarters. A lower level basement provides a well-proportioned cellar. The ground floor offers open plan living room with hallways serving access to the kitchen. To the first floor the property provides four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Stairs lead off one bedroom to the two connecting attic rooms.
