The Stones at the Red Lion



The Stones at the Red Lion

Now called The Winning Post, the pub that discovered the Stones

Location: 265 High Street, Sutton, SM1 1LD

Description: A pub which helped The Rolling Stones on their road was added to a list of protected buildings in Sutton.

The Winning Post was among 170 buildings and landmarks that were added to the Local List, that helps to identify and preserve structures with local significance, after an appeal by Sutton Council.

The Sutton High Street pub, was where the Rolling Stones were spotted early in their careers playing a gig, when the venue used to be called The Red Lion, and hosted the young Rolling Stones back in 1963 when as few as 30 people showed up.

But one person in the audience that night was bigwig promoter Giorgio Gomelski, who signed the Stones up for a residency at Richmond's iconic Crawdaddy Club, just months before they hit the charts and became overnight stars.
