Outdoor Facilities

The Red Lion is set within seven acres of Cheshire countryside with super panoramic views in the village of Lower Withington, near Macclesfield and Congleton. The rear of the building has a large garden with fields, and to the front a small paddock with Jodrell Bank Telescope a small distance away.


There are benches at the front where the sun sets in the evening making the perfect relaxing location. Food is also served in our outdoor areas where there are two heated smoking areas with cover for rainy days.


A large carpark is available to accomodate groups and there are various walks available from the car park, the routes can be obtained from the guidebook avaiable at the bar or can be found online. Please confirm with the management when leaving your vehicle.

The Red Lion's position in the countryside enables you to combine a quiet pub drink, bar snack, lunch, evening meal or even a favourite day out with friends and family and is only 2 miles away from Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre and world famous Lovell Telescope.
