Welcome to The Red Lion

Welcome to The Red Lion, a beautiful 200-year-old traditional country pub in the village of Stodmarsh, just 5 miles from Canterbury City Centre and a 10 minute walk from the Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve. 
In April 2023 the pub reopened under the new management of Sarah.
Open Wednesday to Sunday from 12 noon every week, the kitchen boasts gorgeous, home-cooked dishes alongside quick fix bar snacks, and a locally renowned roast dinner every Sunday. The Red Lion also hosts live music, quiz nights, private events and more and has two fantastic B&B rooms for those who’d like to make their visit a bit longer. 
As a family friendly pub, we have beautiful gardens with a small play area, games for the children and a reliable children’s menu. The pub (inside & out) is also dog friendly – make sure you find the treats on the bar!   The Red Lion, Stodmarsh is thriving and we can’t wait to welcome you!
