Our History

The Red Lion is a solid, stone building originating 300 Years ago as a sheep drovers pub and later as a stagecoach inn on the old road midday between Edinburgh & Newcastle, on the edge of Northumberland National Park. It was also popular with WW2 fighter pilots based at Milfield Airfield, which is now home to the Borders gliding club. The Red Lion is within easy reach of fishing on both the Till & Tweed plus walking routes in the Cheviot Hills and Battle Field of Flodden. The Red Lion offers a friendly welcome to all.
