The pub dates from the 15th century and was one of the coaching inns for which Chipping Barnet was famous. It lies on the Great North Road, of which High Street, Chipping Barnet, forms a part. By 1817, 150 coaches a day were passing through the town. It became the Red Lion Hotel and, in the 20th century, the Felix and Firkin pub before reverting to The Red Lion. The pub was rebuilt in 1930 by the Meux Brewery to the designs of their in-house architect, William Foster.
