Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

A Courage cockerel stands guard above the bar of this madeover pub, formerly a bog-standard boozer but now a wannabe-boho hangout.

Here congregate comparatively grown-up drinkers, slightly more sensible than the hedonists and cutting-edge creatives who fill other Hoxton spots; they gather in the main bar, beads of illuminated baubles strung around it like a fairground, alleviating the otherwise accurate impression that you’re standing in a bashed-up pub. The fireplace and the glitterball add to the confused decorative impression. There are more rooms on the upper two floors, but few venture up there.

The beers are standards, as are the snacks (toasties, ciabattas, tortilla) and the mains (pizzas, fish ’n’ chips).


Red Lion says
Located in the heart of Shoreditch, The Red Lion is a purveyor of quality drinks and food.
Having been around before Shoreditch exploded into what it is now, a busy and trendy area full of bars, pubs and restaurants, it can be hard to find the right place.
