Could you run this pub in Rossendale?

The Red Lion is a cosy community pub with original features oozing character basking in the warmth of two open fires. You’ll discover a compact kitchen, providing an opportunity to produce a small food offer. The astute operator would also seize the potential to develop the beer garden, which guests love for its picturesque views.

Here you’ll discover three trading areas with a small bar, two open fires and a basement cellar. There’s a small outside smoking area/beer garden to the side of the pub with a currently unused basement beer garden area which you could bring back to life, increasing footfall.

About the local area

Situated on the outskirts of Rossendale and close to Rawtenstall, Haslingden and Bacup, the pub is located south of Burnley and east of Blackburn. It sits away from the town centre in the Rossendale valley, known as the Adrenaline valley, in the South Lancashire Pennines. You’ll be living and working in a picturesque part of the world.

Ideal operator/s

We’re seeking an experienced, community wet-led operator who knows the area. You’ll love managing cask ales and running local events such as darts and dominoes. We would explore the potential for joint investment in the pub business with the right operator. You’ll be the operator who knows your regular’s names, what they love to drink and where they like to sit. Yours will be the pub where everyone is welcome.


This fantastic pub opportunity comes with domestic accommodation that consists of two bedrooms, a private kitchen, and a lounge.
