Graham Coombs left this review about The Old Red Lion

A small traditional corner pub with a well-run, efficient feel and some sensible beers despite being a Greene King house. The ground floor bar is mainly for vertical drinking, with a few stools, and another bar is signed upstairs. Draught beers at time of visit were TT Landlord, Black Sheep Best Bitter, Deuchars IPA and Wadworths 6X plus IPA and Abbot of course.

Small Greene King pub on a corner with a nice old exterior. Didn't visit the upstairs bar. 6 real ale taps 5 on.

This pub was established as The Red Lion in the 16th century and rebuilt in 1899. I haven't been here for a good 25 years so don't remember it well. It's a Greene King outlet as is almost everything in central London. It's very small with no tables, just window stools with a second bar upstairs, not visited. It's very gloomy with two chandeliers and is bare boarded. Muted music played and no TVs were in evidence.
Ales: GK's Abbot and IPA, Timothy Taylor's Landlord and Darwin's Origin at a steep £2.20 a half which was ok.

I can't see any special reason to return, perhaps that's why I hadn't been back for so long.
