What a place!
As i stumbled through the iron-clad doors i entered paradise........the blinding, strobe lights hit your face like a bitch slap from the missus. The slamming beats make you want to move like an epileptic near a police light. Truly remarkable place! 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

One word to describe the red lion is heaven. Many weekends i have found myself in the fantastic toilets on a saturday night fixing my makeup. What a top class spot it will put the town of Blackwood on the map.

had my first kiss there!!!
it was about 2 weeks ago now. id heard of this well-appointed publis house in blackwood. me and my friends decided to go there to spice our weekend up. Little did i know that lurking in the shadows was the most magnificant creature mankind could behold. Her name was sasha. didnt catch her second name. it sounded like griffiths. she had a black dinner gown on, and as soon as i saw her i fell to my knees. i knew she was mine. please help me find my sasha!

that place really makes my loins throb. I remember it was just last night, while i was tugging off on the exquiset dance area, when all of a sudden a slipped on a girls glass slipper. i spent the remainder of the night sliding around on my back looking up girls skirts! oh how i crave the lions atmosphere!!!!

I love the lion
I wish i could unite with the red lion himself. He must be a glorious character and i soon hope to entwine our two souls to be as one. His rhythmical masterpieces send shivers down my spine, and his beer is of the highest standard

The lion is the most mystical of all pubs. i loose all conciosness when i enter its steel clad doors. A subtle wink off the bouncer and behold, i am in the most glorious place on earth.
