FAMILY HERITAGE

Our story

Nestled away in the south west tip of Cheshire, a stone’s throw from the borders with Shropshire and Wales – Malpas is a beautifully peaceful and historic village. The Lion has been a central part of Malpas village life for over three centuries.

In 2018, Si and Chrissy Lees Jones bought the Red Lion in Malpas and in conjunction with local operator Woody Barlow set about creating a fabulous home from home pub experience. With meticulous planning, work begun to modernise the existing pub and add 16 stunning new bedrooms as well as a beautiful, self-containing event space, the Brereton Suite. The Lion was officially re-opened in September 2020 to begin the next chapter of its long and illustrious history.
