Describes itself as an "Eighteenth century (1738), grade II listed, stone built Coaching Inn set in the idyllic Teesdale village of Cotherstone. Within the walls of the Red you won’t find a T.V, jukebox or bandit. Just the crackle of the open fire, good beer and the pulse of conversation and laughter". Whilst it's like drinking in your grandmother's house in the 60s, it's ridiculously cheap and the Yorkshire Dales Brewery Rowantree and Aysgarth Falls were both quite good. Very different from its near neighbour The Fox and Hounds but well worth seeking out.

Does anyone actually update this website anymore ????
Red Lion still an awesome real ale pub with beers at only £2.40 a pint (that of 2015) which is truly great enterprise when supping and enjoying the "League of Gentlemen" clientele !

Great rotation of real ale with Jennings Cumberland as the default. Honest village pub which hasn't been mucked about with, long may it continue.
