Previous reviews are pretty accurate descriptions. Boasting a name that’s unique, this is a long(ish) narrow pub with conventional furniture and conventional tourists in search of the Ye Olde Londone pub experience. Carpeted, two TVs showing something of no merit with the sound down, mid-level music, unattractive sauce bottles on the tables, dated 1960s/’70s bar furniture and historic prints on the walls.
Ales: 1 pump unused, Sharp’s Doom Bar, Fuller’s London Pride and Timothy Taylor’s Landlord at a smarting £4.70 a pint but good. The pub’s website reads ‘Yet as soon as you enter its premises the first thing you notice is the ambience - something money can't buy… you cannot help but grin on entering’ – indeed you can’t buy the ambience if you’ve blown £4.70 on a pint and that’s not a grin, it’s a grimace.
The Cock & Lion serves a purpose of sorts but is a bit of a dreary backwater tourist pub serving expensive ale in dated surroundings, so I won't be returning though opening times are generous which is a bonus.

One room with bar to the left. Four real ales - all weak. Not worth the visit.

A pretty typical single roomed pub common in this part of London,a rather pedestrian set of beers,Doom Bar, Landlord,Pride and Tribute, the latter being cold and bland.
