History of the Red Lion Room
The Red Lion Room was officially re-established in 2019. Pictures from c.1979, tell us the Red Lion Room was here before. We are not sure how long it was here, or how long it lasted, but it was here.
The Red Lion Room is located in the Windsor Hotel. “The Windsor Block” was built in 1873 and extended to Downie Street. Over the last 100 years, the hotel has carried a few other names, 23 Albert Place being one; finally, it arrived back at the Windsor Hotel.
The decision to open the Red Lion Room as a jazz lounge was easy, especially after speaking with many people in Stratford and looking at what Stratford was missing after Down The Street sold and was remodeled.
Simple understandable food; support for the craft beer movement; delicious value vino; a quiet place to relax. That’s our twist on history.
