The Red Lion is the longest running free house in the Matlock area. We pride ourselves on the warm friendly atmosphere. What makes us unique is the combination of super comfy rooms great food in the restaurant or bar and a really friendly pub lounge where you can spend the evening enjoying a drink in good company.
The Red Lion is a family run pub B&B. The pub itself is the longest running free house in the area. Our rooms are finished at a very good standard with an emphasis on the cleanliness.
Our restaurant serves homemade traditional dishes with some of them as famous signature items such as the Red Lion steak pie or the fresh fish and chips (all home made) We also serve a great range of beverages from cask ales to gins to probably the best house wines in the area. Spend long evenings in front of the huge open fire slowly sampling the drinks with a stomach full of food then simply conveniently wander upstairs to your room last thing. You can not get a better location than Matlock green for your stay.
We are just on the outskirts from Matlock itself but only by a 5 minute walk through a beautiful park. So you are away from the (slight) hustle and bustle of the main town but close enough for a stroll around the sights. Matlock is a beautiful place to visit.
There are some amazing sights to see and places to visit. Plan a visit to Chatsworth House Hadden Hall (Both about 10 min drive away). Explore High Tor or Riber for the most spectacular views these can both be walked to from the Red Lion.
