The Red Lion dates back as an inn to the 17th century, and over the years it has been sympathetically extended and now operates as a large destination food pub. It was refurbished to an excellent standard in August 2015. This outlet oozes character and is reportedly the oldest pub in Blackburn. The Red Lion enjoys a prominent location on a busy roundabout on the outskirts of Blackburn, just two miles from the town centre, and just off Junction 6 of the M65. It is surrounded by large residential areas and there is also a large industrial park nearby. The Red Lion has an excellent reputation for good quality traditional food, that is complimented by a great selection of beers and wines.
