Lavenham Red Lionhistorical era: ancient
opened 14th century
closed before 1772?
8-9 Market Place
In recent years the former Red Lion has been used both as tea rooms and as a book-shop.
A reference to the pub appears in the Ipswich Journal, October 3rd 1772*** when a large Dwelling House, with the Yards and Buildings, formerly known by the Name of the Red Lyon, in the Market-Place, in Lavenham is being sold. (The sale appears to have been triggered by the death of Rowland Branwhite, Common Brewer)
