Red Lion Inn, Hawkshead

The Red Lion Inn is a traditional 15th Century Lakeland Inn situated in heart of the beautiful village of Hawkshead, part of the English Lake District. The Inn is the ideal base from which to explorer the Lake District and is perfect for those wishing to visit the villages of Hawkshead, Ambleside, Windermere, Keswick and Bowness. It is also a great place for a relaxing break in one of the quieter, yet more interesting corners of the Lake District. At the Red Lion you will find home made dishes made using high quality ingredient many of which are sourced from within Cumbria which you can enjoy in the bar. From the bar we offer a wide range of wines, spirits and superbly kept cask ales from around the area. Here at the Red Lion you will find comfortable individually styled rooms with a homely feel. Why not while away the hours in a cheerful, relaxed and informal atmosphere with friends old and new. Paul, Lynn and Jake Larkin will work to provide you with a warm and friendly welcome to their establishment. Be warned, a sense of humour is a must!
