The Lion was at the corner of the London Road and Colville Road (in Kirkley). Colville Road is now known as Clifton Road. In census returns the street address is shown first as 84 London Road and then 201 London Road. (Details from Jason Austin).
As the Royal Oak is on the northern corner of Clifton Road, the Lion must have been on the southern corner.
It's listed in the 1910 Lowestoft rate book as the Red Lion.
The site is now occupied by a fairly modern building, so the pub must have been demolished.
it was previously listed at 84 or 85 London Road, Kirkley.
