    Background: A regular caller at the Red Lion, village inn at Isham, Northamptonshire is 15 months old African lion "Simba"
    He likes nothing better on a hot day than to leave his den at nearby Wellingborough Zoo, and go in to the village pub for a nice long pint of cool beer.

    Time passes very quickly when drinking with one's friends, and all too soon the landlord's wife Mrs. Noble points cut that closing time is near.

    Landlord Noble himself pulls up the last pint for Simba who thoroughly enjoys these outings arranged for him by Zoo owner John Stevens.

    The villagers are used to seeing him leaning on the bar drinking, but visitors go straight home to bed and send for a doctor.
