The Red Lion is located in Newbrough 41/2 miles from one of UNESCO World Heritage Sites Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland. Newbrough is a quiet and pretty village which lies on the north bank of the South Tyne river about 5 miles (8km) west of Hexham.

The pub, of which is one of Newbrough's oldest buildings, a hostelry dating back to 1190's is on the Stanegate Roman road, built in A.D. 71, runs from east to west and formed the original northern frontier before the building of Hadrian's wall.

The Red Lion has been brought back into the 21st Centuary with all the charm of a country-side bed and breakfast.  A spacious area to drink, with it's original wood and stonework, open log fires and comfortable chairs.  Our bar has locally sourced ales and our wine comes from all over the world.  The Red Lion prides itself on providing very high quality, delicious food.  The menu is seasonal and the produce is locally sourced with home grown vegetables. Freshly cooked with a twist.

We have 5 letting bedrooms, 4 en-suite and can accommodate 12 people.  We have one family room which can accommodation 4 and the rest of the rooms can be either single twins or double. (All our beds can be linked together to create doubles)

The Red Lion is ideally situated on the National Cycle Network, with the popular Route 72 passing directly infront of the pub.  This can provide a welcome and refreshing break for weary cyclists.  There are also a number of other cycle routes around the area as well as a reliable rail network linking various routes around the country.  We can provide secure bike storage, maps, packed lunches available on request and laundry facilities.
