Serving Mayfair for well over 200 years… The Red Lion has long known the importance of great tasting food and expertly stored drink. Pull up a chair after a day of shopping along Regent Street, or enjoy some street side socialising outdoors, and let us take care of the rest.

When there only for a few pints before restaurant. So nice atmosphere! The kind of old, strange decorum that you need to drink and talk nicely. A perfect drinking place, easily crowded as the space between bar and walls is pretty narrow, the way it...More

A favourite with locals and also tourists - a quintessential ‘good old boozer’ in the heart of Mayfair. The staff are wonderfully friendly, the choice of drinks and food is sufficient. The food is superb whatever time of day.

Close to Big Ben and Parliament you'd think this to be a tourist bar. It's not. It's definitely authentic with mostly a after work crowd. It's not big but has lots a charm. It's a great spot especially after seeing some of the nearby tourist...More

Love this pub, very London spilling out on to the street. London Pride was very popular with my group. For a busy pub there were plenty of staff who were quick and friendly. Always a good choice.
