See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Close to Chester's town hall square, the Red Lion was built in around 1600 although it is heavily modernised inside. Notable by its black and white style of the Tudor period it claims a haunted cellar, a tale emphatically retold by a previous landlady. Today it can be a lively pub popular for its sports TV. There is a single bar area with a dedicated dining room behind, though meals are served throughout.
