The Red Lion Hotel
The red Lion
The Red Lion Hotel is steeped in history. Built in the 1850s at the beginning of the gold-rush, the hotel was host to many a miner who had ‘struck it rich’ on the goldfields, with beer being paid for in gold rather than coin! Alongside the prize fights that frequented the venue, quoits competitions were held out the back, with the main competitors being miners.
Today the Red Lion Hotel is a premiere entertainment venue featuring Leo’s Restaurant for a full dining experience; the Simba Sports Bar where you can catch the latest sports and events; the Nicholas Function Room & Simba Deck that caters to corporate events, birthdays and other functions; and our café and bar area for relaxed dining.
The children’s playground space is located just off the cafe area and features tunnels, slides, a TV and other fun equipment for the kids to explore while you relax.
From Prospect Cottage Ballarat, The Red Lion Hotel is just a 4 minute walk, or 1 minute away by rideshare/taxi .
