The Red Lion is Feltham's oldest surviving public house still functioning in its original building.
Threatened with demolition in 1969, petitions by regular customers, and a member of the Hounslow & District History Society, helped to secure a preservation order for the building.
The Red Lion's name was changed to KTM ROX in 2017.
