The Red Lion in Kenninghall

Double room from £65 per night


  • Open Fire or Stove

This is a charming country pub, serving real ales and good food, as well as offering comfortable guest accommodation in the peaceful surroundings of the Norfolk countryside.

The Red Lion had been closed for approximately seven years before being re-opened in February 1997 following our extensive refurbishment. The work included the restoration of the original fireplaces and one of the main features of the pub; the "snug" which is one of only two of its kind in East Anglia.

The bar and snug are warm and friendly all year round, with fires burning in the cold winter months to complete the ambience. We have a range of cask ales, fine wines, spirits, and soft drinks for your enjoyment.

We believe the main building to be approximately 400 years old and the premises have been licensed since 1722.

We have four guest rooms, each sleeping two people. All rooms are en suite. We have 2 double bedrooms and 2 twin bedrooms. Rooms 3 and 4 can be linked for family use, giving one room with a double bed and another room with two single beds.

The Red Lion features in the CAMRA good beer guide. During 2000 we were voted Norfolk and Norwich CAMRA branch pub of the year. This followed being voted Pub of the Trail in the CAMRA winter ale trail, and we also came third in the East Anglian Pub of the year. During 1999 Bruce Berry, your landlord, was awarded the Cask Marque Certificate of Excellence for the outstanding quality of the range of cask ales served. In July 2001, Norfolk and Norwich CAMRA voted the Red Lion to be the County Mild Pub of the year. More recently in September 2006 Greene King Brewing Company named us as East Anglian Pub of the year. In September 2007 we were named Greene King's Free Trade National Community Pub of the Year.

Our restaurant boasts a range of traditional fare as well as chargrilled steaks and fish, and a constantly changing specials board. As all our food is freshly prepared and cooked individually to order, you may experience a delay of approximately 30 minutes.
