Red Lion

The 200-year old clock in the taproom is a clue to the age and tradition of this pub. The bar itself is an antique marble slab which has played host to the inn's long association with pre-First World War games such as 'Toad-In-The-Hole', and `Nine Men's Morris'. A game known as `Goal Running' used to be played here too - a 20 or more a side combination of cross-tag, chasing and fist-fights! The pub has been in the same family since 1911 and has remained virtually unchanged since WWII. They don’t sell lager and all the real ales are poured straight from the cask, food consists of crisps and pickled eggs, and the toilets are outside. It’s also one of the few pubs to still open at 11am and close again for the afternoon at 3pm. CAMRA Romney Marsh Pub of the Year for 2015
