History of Establishment

The Red Lion Truck Stop is over 300 Years old. It started off as a sorting office, where the horse and cart would have a break and then go back on the road to deliver the mail. The lay by that is there now, was in fact the main road which, when the main dual carriage was being built became the lay by that we see now today.

The Red Lion establishment slowly grew from not just being a place to stop for postal workers but everyone alike, and soon when horse and cart slowly evolved to 4 wheel drives and then to trucks, The Red Lion was the place to stop, to eat, drink and have a rest.

Ever since then we have always tried to maintain the same ethics to offer good quality food and drink to anyone that wants to come and take a break.
