I have only been to this pub on rare occasions however I was walking passed and noticed it was open for takeaway draft beer as well as delicatessen food. I took away a 2pint plastic bottle filled with an excellent Brewdog IPA and three plastic...More

Having been a fan of Santa Maria since it opened, I was delighted when they took over the Red Lion. It's just a shame the original Italian owners don't seem to be at the Ealing branch any more, as they were friendly and good fun...More

Poor service and poor staff but nice food when it eventually came. Messed up the order 3 times and all 7 of us ate at different times over. 2 hour period. Also asked for a veggie calzone and ended up with a meat one. If...More

Completely agree with so many of the recent reviews. The food may still be good but the service is terrible. This used to be such a great pub with great food. I used to come all the time. Think will give it a miss going...More

Visited the pub with my family for an evening meal and had an awful experience. We ordered 3 pizzas and 2 main course salads. The main course salads arrived reasonably promptly but no pizzas. After repeatedly asking the manager and being given various pathetic excuses...More

The adjoining restaurant is small so we like many others ate in the pub itself. The calzone was excellent as well as the other 3 pizzas. They are quite high on the tomato level but we like that. Some may not. I took off the...More

”London’s best pizzas” with London’s worst service. 6 ordered, only 4 arrived, queried the other two at the bar, told they would be “7 minutes”, at least 15 mins later two pizzas arrived, one cold and the other looking like an Asda price margarita. When...More

Pizzas were great - lovely dough, good toppings etc. But the problem is the staff . . . Surly, rude, unattentive - couldn't seem to care less. and to top it all, having had a 10% service charge added to the bill, the card machine...More

Ate in the restaurant part of the pub for the first time, rather than ordering at the bar and eating at one of the pub tables, as we usually do. Enjoyed the excellent pizza and beer as always, and when presented with the bill I...More

Not sure you can in the pub but you can in Santa Maria the pizzeria next door. They own the red lion and serve the same food in both establishments.
