Away from the animated life of the main city centre, The Red Lion pub sits in the leafy suburbs of South Manchester's Withington. This Wimslow Road favourite is one of the most popular neighbourhood pubs in Manchester, famed for its endearing environment and welcoming staff. 

Close to other popular Withington bars, the main pub boasts a great array of live music, entertainment and lighthearted fun, making it the perfect destination to start your pub crawl over the summer. 

The Red Lion's excellent alcohol list includes your most well-known brands to the smaller obscurities that could easily be sourced at any one of Manchester's city centre hip new lounges. If beer isn't your preference, then fear not, as the bar serves a selection of great wine and spirits too amongst some other little surprises. If after a long day you fancy something to accompany your beverage then the bar also produces a tasty menu of home-made pub classics. Make sure you're hungry because from as little as £5 you can create you own humongous burger tower - and we're not exaggerating! If the kids are not ready to tackle the main menu just yet, there is a smaller one just for them. Sunday has recently seen the return of the pub's much-talked about roast carvery, a must for any Yorkshire pudding lover.

When the warm weather arrives you can pick between any two of the pub's gardens to unwind in. The main one seats a wide selection of benches whilst the other overlooks The Red Lion's very own immaculate bowling green. From quiz nights to karaoke there is always something to get involved with - though not everyone can sing very well - don't say we didn't warn you.
