Stoke Newington
A mix of vintage furniture, dimmed lighting and candles make for a cosy atmosphere at this Stoke Newington boozer. Real ales on tap are London Pride, Deuchars IPA and Harvey's Sussex Best, while the lengthy cocktail list eschews the classics for more unusual concoctions. A bison martini mixes Zubrowka bison grass vodka with smooth crème de pêche and apple juice, while the fruity mango daiquiri is not short of a strong rum shot. There's a small menu that offers Argentinean-style barbecued food such as chivito, an Argentinean steak sandwich.

I was walking on Chruch street in Stoke Newington on a sunny day. Suddenly, the quest for a beer garden overtook me. And there it was, The Lion. Not only does the beer garden have lovely fairy lights and loads of sun light, it also has a full burger BBQ kitchen! The smell was almost unbearable in my ever-hungry state.

The pub also seems to be the home to a life drawing class every Wednesday and show main sports games on its giant screen in the main room. The general decor is pretty traditional in the best possible way. #TOTastemaker
