Ian Mapp left this review about Red Lion

Find of the date.... tucked away down an unappealing alley from Pall Mall to King Street, lies this historical gem.

Outside indicates that its the 2nd oldest licenced pub in the area. Doesn't name what is the first. Rumours of tunnels used by Nell Gwynne to visit King Charles II. But aren't these rumours everywhere?

Inside, its has quite a feel of a 1930s pub to it.... wood pannelling, bench seating.

Slowly on a Friday evening, the pub filled with a mixture of tourists, regulars and the knowledgeable who know it as an oasis of calm to escape to.

Only Tribute on - in decent condition - but sometimes a pub is more than the just the beer served.

Worth finding.

A nice little pub down an alleyway with one smart wood-panelled room on the ground floor and something labelled the Mirror Lounge upstairs. As usual for the area, there is vertical drinking in the alleyway outside. On handpump were Tribute and Adnams Bitter, in good order.

Tucked away down an alley quite basic one roomed interior but nothing wrong with that. 2 real ale taps. Dodgy steps down to the toliet.
