Was located at 15 Hankow Road, TST. Opening and closure dates are unknown, but closure was 1966 latest when Ho Tung Mansions were demolished.
The Red Lion Inn probably moved to Lock Ashley Road after demolition of Ho Tung Mansions. See this photo from 1982:
The lion looks pretty much the same as it was at Hankow Road.

Hi phil and moddsey,
thanks for correcting me. I originally meant Ashley Road, but for whatever reason I wrote Lock Road. Regards, Klaus
Hi Klaus.The Red Lion Inn was a much-travelled watering hole in TST. Found the following addresses through matchbook covers and the internet:
57 Hankow Road;
15 Ashley Road and
9 Lock Road.
There also appears to be an Old Red Lion Inn on Lock Road in one of the posted photos.
Hi moddsey, well spotted. Here is a photo from 1973 showing Lock Road with the Old Red Lion Inn.
I have created places for the subsequent generations of the Red Lion Inn based on posted photos, information from travel guides and matchbox labels.
