Cathy Price – The Red Lioness

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!
