The Red Lion Coaching Inn
Welcome to The Red Lion Coaching Inn in Ellesmere! Our family run pub is a 16th century Coaching Inn evidence of which can be seen as you walk around the building. We welcome you through the same doors that the horses would of come through to access the stables in our courtyard.
We are perfectly located right in the middle of Shropshire’s “mini Lake District” where you will find 9 beautiful Meres in total, with ours – “The Mere” – being the biggest and most popular with families and wildlife enthusiasts. We are also a few minutes walk from the “Shropshire Union Canal” and BlackWater Marina where you can pick up a canal boat up to enjoy as part of a canal holiday!
Here at The Red Lion we pride ourselves on our warm, friendly and vibrant atmosphere which makes for a perfect setting when enjoying one of our home cooked meals, accompanied by some of the most popular thirst quenching drinks.
So please come and visit us! We welcome walk-ins, dogs (and their well behaved owners!), families, parties and private functions. You can even stay over in one of our newly refurbished rooms to experience the whole package. We have family rooms, ground floor rooms with disabled access and rooms with baths. We hope to see you soon! Cheers!
