The Red Lioness

One Woman. Four Years. 90,000 miles. 650 Plus Pubs

by

It was Grand National weekend and Cathy Price had just popped into a pub in the Lake District to see how her horse was doing. A sign alerted her to the fact that this was the most common name for a pub in the UK. "I wonder if anyone has ever visited them all?" she thought. The name of the pub was The Red Lion. And so, the quest began... In a journey of 600 plus pubs and nearly 100,000 miles through a recession and better times, she thinks she has visited every UK RED Lion from the very worst to the most magical. Taking in Enid Blyton, James Bond and Clark Gable plus royalty and rock 'n' roll, births, deaths, marriages and ghosts, and of course her own personal life story evolving over more than four years, this is a heartwarming story that captures the essence of everything quirky and British. Part-guide, part adventure meet the characters and stories behind the Red Lion pub in this unique journey as Cathy saw them one at a time. Welcome to the quest!

Cathy  Price

I am a personal trainer from Preston, Lancashire. Divorced mother of one and my passion is to travel any where and everywhere discovering exciting new places and people.

In April 2011 I set out to visit every RED LION pub in Britain after randomly reading it was the most common name for a pub. The Quest was completed on Sep 5th 2015 at Northmoor Red Lion-my 656th. The book tells of the quirky 4 and a half year journey round our amazing Country, the people involved in my travels and the many interesting facts I discovered.
