The Red Lion Inn is a Quakertown staple - it's been there since 1747, and was the first tavern and hotel in the town. It's across the street from Liberty Hall, where the liberty bell once spent the night en route to somewhere else. The "McCoole's" part of the name was added after an ownership change. This restaurant has a lot of historic charm. Some of the interior walls are original field stone and mortar, and there is a lot of dark wood paneling and exposed wooden beams. Next door is the old Main Street Theater, which has now been turned into an event space and shares a courtyard area with the facade of the restaurant.
