A good range of typical pub food. Service was fine. Food was tasty. Outside space was ok but nothing great - either at the side of the car park or the side of the (quite busy) road - but at least we could sit out...More

Super location with plenty of parking. No shortage of seats both inside and out. Later in the day the outside picnic tables are in the shade, so you can view the stones, the road, and the tourists from a cool and refreshing spot. Great meeting...More

Of course you are coming for the stones. The parking lot is 7 pounds at the Trust site. The red lion has a parking lot - so you could save yourself 7 pounds if there is a spot. The meal was good. The ultimate fish...More

We visited in mid week and ordered lunch and drinks at the bar. The real problem for us was the length of time we had to wait for a relatively straight forward order of sandwiches and jacket potatoes. We were told 30 minutes, in reality...More

The Red Lion is set in the tiny village of Avebury which is three miles in radius and some 2000 years older than Stonehenge! Refurbished Winter 2013 the pub is 400 years old and located at the centre of the stone circle where every six weeks a pagan festival is held. It is in the Top Ten list of most haunted pubs in the country and has been seen on TV as such. The main ghost is that of an old landlady "Florrie" who was killed here by her husband. Ghosts aside, this destination food house is a lovely thatched listed cottage with cobbles and a large mill stone in the car park and low ceilings, beams and traditional wood furniture with a modern twist inside. Food is served from an extensive main menu and specials board, offering a good selection of quality pub fayre with a good range of wines available to complement the experience or a choice of real ales if preferred. The Wadworth brewery is only two miles away! Our clientele are generally tourists and visitors but there is a friendly welcome for anyway wishing to have a drink or dine.
