Red Lion, Newmarket

This comfortable friendly pub full of rustic atmosphere and charm nestles within the ancient village of Kirtling in west Suffolk.

We’re Hazel and Steve and we’d love to welcome you to the Kirtling Red Lion. For hundreds of years the Red Lion has greeted locals and passing travellers with warmth, fine ales and excellent home-cooked meals and we are continuing with that tradition.

In the summer you can relax outside in our beer garden, enjoying beautiful views of the Suffolk countryside and watch our friendly chickens scratching around the vegetable gardens, while your children can have fun in the play area. If its cold outside, then the warmth of our roaring fire will entice you inside to enjoy one of our delicious home made pies, fabulous fresh fish on Friday's or one of our mouth watering Sunday Lunches. All our food is home cooked from scratch, and is locally sourced, either from our own garden or local growers in the surrounding areas. We have our own home grown pork and home grown sausages on the menu, come and try some before they all run out|| We have our own chickens which produce all the eggs we need to go with our delicious home grown and home cooked ham. The rest of the eggs go into our delicious home cooked puddings.

We have a games room which has a Bar Billiards table, Canadian Shuffle Board and lots of board games, books and colouring stuff for the kids to enjoy and keep them busy. Our in-house mascott 'Lionel' will be here to welcome the children, and there are lots of picturs of him to colour in too.

We serve excellent well kept Real Ales such as Admans, Woodfordes Wherry, Guest Ales, Guinness and an excellent wine list. There are plenty of soft drinks and snacks too.

We look forward to seeing you soon, Hazel and Steve
