Description:The Red Lion pub stands at the junction between what used to be the A344 to Botley - now pedestrianised - and what used to be the A3024 to Bursledon - now a quiet dead end.

The Lion statue in front of the pub has no connection to the Red Lion. It used to be on top of shops in Lion Place, about 150 yards behind the pub that in the 1840s to 1920s was the shopping heart of the village.
