Red Lion

The Red Lion was situated on Warwick Road.
 
I grew up in Kineton in the 60's - I was a patron of the Red Lion from 1966 (when I turned 18) until 1973 when I left the village for a new life in California. USA.
I have a lot of fond memories of the Red Lion. There were the Sunday night dances in the Rodney room and at one time there was a Friday night disco.
For a while we used to play the game of Aunt Sally in the small parking lot located between the actual pub and the Rodney Room that was out in the back of the premises.
Jim Young was the great no nonsense land lord. They served pies and chips at a the side window. The pub was always alive from Friday night through Sunday night.
People like Desi Smith, Roger Dymond, Richard Eliff, Keith Howe and of course Andrew 'Speedy' Harrison and his brother Tony, Barbara Paice (all sadly no longer with us) Eddie Paice, Brian Bennett, Hazel and Martin Maloney, Jenny and Dave Prickett, Tony and Trevor Bennett, Dougie Gillam, Philip 'Tich' Gillam, Billy Prickett to mention but a few. It was the focal point of the village and when it closed so did a big part of Kineton. We used to pub crawl between the Lion and the Swan and the Carpenters (affectionately known as the Carps) Three different pubs with totally different personalities. But the Lion was the kick ass pub. Many many personal memories of the Red Lion. Too many to mention here.
