The Red Lion (St Albans Rd / The Green)



Dating from the 17th century, the Red Lion was by all accounts a small inn.  In fact, so small that it had no actual serving bar beer had to be brought up from the cellar in jugs.  It was very cosy, with a saloon room on the left, a public bar on the right and a passage-way between the two, but never too busy.  Back in the 40s, this was a regular stopping off point for Sunday cyclists, and a games room was added later on to attract more custom.  But unfortunately to no avail.  The Red Lion poured its last pint in 1961 and became The Noggins.
