Scroll through other Monks Eleigh closed premises
The pub is shown on OS maps at least as late as 1958, but by 1974 it's shown as "Paddock Hall", so presumably closed some time between those dates.
A report in the Bury & Norwich Post** on Oct-30 in 1866 when George Manistre was the landlord states that :
William Radcliff was charged with stealing a stone bottle from the Red Lion. It was clear to all that at the time of the robbery Radcliff was "so drunk as not know what he was about. The jury aquitted the prisoner."
