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.

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.

Wonderful decor and a good pint and a half of Guiness. You don't need to be too tall to go downstairs to the loo! Very quiet before the lunchtime rush? Enjoyed
