Old Red Lion – Red Room

The Old Red Lion is a delicious little grade II listed pub on Kennington Park Road. Built in the 1930’s but designed in a traditional Tudor style with a courtyard garden, conservatory and dark wood bar area it’s filled to the brim with comfy furniture and quirky decorations.  Inside, the pub is divided in two by a central bar, on one side the main lounge area and on the other, accessed through a low door, is the Red Room. Perfect for dinner parties and family gatherings, the room has it’s own bar and entrance out on to the road and can seat around 20 diners in one sitting. It is overlooked by the kitchen where their long standing chef works his magic, so if you are looking for a scrumptious little venue that has bags of character and one that will definitely impress, you may well just have found it..
