Monks Eleigh Lion
also traded as as: Red Lionhistorical era: mid 20th century
closed between 1958 and 1974?
The Lion is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but by 1974 it's shown as "Paddock Hall", so presumably closed some time between those dates.
It's shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
