Important Covid information

Due to the latest lockdown regulations, pubs can no longer sell alcohol for takeaway or click & collect. Delivery is still permitted, as is the sale of takeaway food. We will update all entries on this site over the next few days to take account of the new situation.

Pubs providing takeaways continue to be listed on this page.

Mendham Lion

Mendham Lion

also traded as Red Lion

Closed between 1970 and 2000

The Street

grid reference TM 270 830

Although there are references to the Lion having closed in 1915, the Hoxne licensing records show it still open at least as late as 1968. It may have remained open after that year, but we have no concrete information.

The pub is shown on this old OS map of about 1903 (interactive map)
