Our Pub

The bar at the Red LionNestled on the green in the picturesque village of Litton, The Red Lion is one of a very few unspoilt traditional Peak District pubs. This historic inn combines character and quality in a way that is rare in modern pubs.

The Red Lion first became a pub in 1787 when it was converted from three farm cottages. Thick exposed stone walls & wood panelling in a number of small, cosy rooms with blazing coal and log fires, create a comfortable & inviting atmosphere

We do not do provide accommodation here but there are a number of B&Bs within easy walking distance – see the Our Village page.

Walker’s paradise

The Real Fire at the Red Lion, LittonThe Red Lion is an ideal spot to start (and end) a walk in the breathtaking Derbyshire Dales. There are five National Nature Reserves within a short walk of the pub’s from door. When you’ve had a great walk what better than to wash it all down with some traditional ales or wines. The Red Lion offers a good selection of hand-pulled ales, wine, malt whiskies and soft drinks, and is open from 12 o’clock right through until late! The Red Lion also serves really good home cooked pub food every day, except Mondays.

The pub is dog-friendly too, so long as your dog is well-behaved.

The Red Lion – a real community

Although it is well loved by walkers and tourists,The Red Lion is a real village pub and this is apparent in the wonderful mix of local characters that drink and eat here. Many a stranger has walked in for a pint and come away with new friends and interesting stories to remind themselves of their time in Litton.

It’s such a small pub that its not ideal for children but there is plenty of seating outside on the pretty village green, which is covered in daffodils in early spring.
