Moby Duck left this review about The Red Lion

As mentioned before me, obviously an old pub, but given a modern shabby chic makeover and not particularly successfully in my view, it just doesn't feel right. Two pumps on the bar with just the choice of Portobello Westway Pale which was in rather average condition.
Didn't really do it for me.

This is clearly an old pub which has experienced a designer refurbishment, an old boarded floor remains as does a fireplace but that's about it. The island bar is located towards the front but the counter for some reason is constructed from cut up old doors, there are hit and miss panels of wallpaper with a flamingo pattern, seating is mixed with much of it being at various reclaimed dining tables including some that look like old café versions with all kinds of seating. Shelves have a selection of games, books and kids' toys.
The rear area is bright and airy with a large rooflight, many tables here being set for eating, placemats were old 33rpm vinyl albums.
Beyond an outdoor decked area on two levels was popular on a sunny afternoon. Food served but I didn't see a menu.
Two handpumps, Hogs Back T.E.A and Twickenham Mosaic Pale, expensive at £3.85 for a 3.2% beer. Despite this worth a look, I understand the beer range varies so a bit of a lucky dip I guess.

Review below is still pretty accurate. It does seem a shame to have rather wrecked a classic pub interior, however having random decor and furniture is possible an acceptable price to pay to retain the pub and keep a couple of very local ales available in very fine form.
