About
the Red Lion

Situated in the rural, picturesque village of Milfield, The Red Lion Inn is a classic stone building dating back to the mid 1700’s.

Originally frequented by the Sheep Drovers of the northern counties and became a major resting point for the Mail Stage Coach carrying passengers and mail between Edinburgh and London.

We’re located on the edge of Northumberland National Park, with the Cheviot Hills in walking distance; making us the perfect place to visit before exploring the area.

Traditional DINING

Diners can be assured of wholesome home cooked food, freshly prepared using locally sourced seasonal ingredients. Come and visit us and try our menu.

Ales, Wines & More

There is plenty of choice of beverage to accompany your meal. We’ve a range of ales, an extensive wine selection, as well as low and zero alcohol options for the driver.

ACCOMMODATION
