Introducing The Lion At Malpas

If you’re looking for great pub food in Malpas, paired with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, then look no further than The Lion at Malpas, our newly renovated pub with rooms – positioned within the heart of the high street.

Dating back to 16th century, the Lion at Malpas (formerly the Red Lion) is located in the beautiful south Cheshire countryside. We’re excited to welcome both locals and those from further afield, but before we open, we wanted to tell you a little bit more about what to expect.

When Does The Lion At Malpas Open?

We are opening our doors on 16th September 2020, with room bookings available the following week. Table reservations are now being taken for this date onwards and the best way to book is by calling 01948 807 070.

What’s The Lion At Malpas All About?

We are opening the doors to a beautifully refurbished, warm and vibrant pub where customers can enjoy food, drinks and quality time with loved ones. The pub is newly renovated aims to combine a quality offer in a relaxed environment that reflects the vibrant history of Malpas. 

The pub is cleverly segmented to offer ‘an area for everyone’ whether you are looking to drink and chat with friends or choosing to sit quietly and relax with your well-behaved four-legged friend when watching the racing.  There is also a range of dining areas too, whether the light and airy Orangery or a quiet corner for a candle lit dinner with a special person. It goes without saying that all areas of the pub are child-friendly for family meals.

Our aim is to be your local pub and then some, a place where you can relax, unwind and create great memories. We’re also fortunate enough to host a local treasure – a centuries-old chair that was believed to have been sat upon by James I himself when he once visited to watch a cock fight. It is owned by the residents of Malpas, who have kindly chosen The Lion to display it. You can find this wonderful piece of history opposite the bar area, where you’ll also find out more about its heritage.

Fabulous Food

We’re excited to soon be unveiling our menus. The kitchen will showcase the very best local produce with meals prepared to reflect the seasons alongside the pub classics one would expect to see. The menus are updated daily to showcase the fresh ingredients, each cooked in a variety of ways including on a state of the art Josper oven, using Cheshire coals to produce unique and beautiful smoky flavours.

Our Rooms

Alongside our pub, we also have 16 rooms on site. When you enter The Lion at Malpas, it feels as though you’re stepping into a miniature community, which is exactly what we’re hoping to capture. There are various room types available, including a converted bakery which is our luxury suite, to classic B&B style rooms with an exclusive breakfast area for those staying overnight. Each room echoes chic and contemporary designs. They are open and airy with plenty of natural light – perfect for an overnight stay or a longer break.

There’s plenty of things to do in Malpas, whether you’re planning to stay in the village, or head out into the Cheshire countryside. Our village and country rooms are also ideal for shutting away from the world and unwinding – you need not ever leave the site if you don’t want to.
