The Red LionThe public house of Myddle is The Red Lion, a now modernised country pub and restaurant.  This is an old building and is partly attached to Myddle Village Hall which was once the village school. It was built at least 300 years ago and is probably much older. It is a Grade 2 listed building. Outside the spaces between the old beams have been filled with bricks and these are younger than the beams.  Inside the rooms are low with oak beams showing on the ceiling and in the wall.  When cockfighting was allowed, there was a cockpit in the kitchen of this inn.
