Red Lion Inn

McCoole's At The Historic Red Lion Inn

McCoole’s offers a multi-venue restaurant and bar in a building originally opened in 1750 by Walter McCoole as McCoole’s Tavern. Over the years this building has played a pivotal role in the history of the community it serves, including the Jacob Fries Rebellion, a stop on the underground railroad, an original serving spot for today’s birch beer and frequent lunch spot for television’s Lassie and his owner, Eric Knight, creator of the classic “Lassie Come Home” series, with Lassie eating steaks served off the dining room floor. Today the kitchen serves up a wide menu of interesting appetizers, all-American comfort foods, pressed sandwiches, burgers, and chicken, steak, seafood and pasta dinner choices in this attractively restored destination. The restaurant also features live entertainment on the weekends.

McCoole’s Arts and Events Place

Next door is McCoole’s Arts and Events Place, originally the inn’s carriage house, also renovated to match the restaurant’s décor. This unique facility serves as a venue for business luncheons, celebrations and special occasion catering downstairs with a 200-seat theatre for the performing arts upstairs. Here on any given weekend you are likely to find a live theatre production or musical concert performance. Spring and fall the facility becomes home to the increasingly popular beer festivals.
