Red Lion

The Red Lion in Leytonstone is a place for everyone; they have 10 hand pumps and 5 guest kegs for the ale and craft beer connoisseurs, and the decor is chic enough for a date, or just for relaxing with friends. Their garden is HUGE, everyone hangouts on the picnic tables when the sunshine comes out, or gathers under the heaters at night and is where The Red Lion hold their fun themed parties.

Get competitive every Monday with their pub quiz, or there is live music all weekend for those wanting their musical fix. DJs get your blood pumping Friday and Saturday evenings, or there's a more chilled out vibe on Sunday as a background to your board game and roast. Oh, and of course their food; classic British grub that will keep you coming back to sample more of the menu  time after time.

Have been regularly visiting to drink excellently cellared cask beer for 4 years. Treated family to birthday meal which was of high quality. Good ingredients skilfully cooked. Thank you. Visited Red Lion on 2018-01-05

Love this pub and it has great vegan options - but our drinks order got lost and it took nearly an hour for food to arrive (it was busy, to be fair). We also had an issue with incorrect items being added to the bill, though we were refunded and apologised to. Might just be that more staff are needed at weekends - it’s such a beautiful pub it’s a shame for issues like this to let it down. Visited Red Lion on 2018-01-01

Really good food and the experience overall was great. The only small comment on having to get our menus ourselves as the staff seemed to keep missing our table when we were waiting to be served. Once we got them, the service was really good and we were happy with it. Visited Red Lion on 2017-12-16

Fabulous food and service, as always. Shame that they had no record of my booking!!! Good job I'd printed it off and there was a table free, otherwise we'd have been really stuck. Had come a long way for a special event. Always rung them before. Will have to do that next time. Visited Red Lion on 2017-11-18

Nice location but a bit over priced, music can be very loud and definitely not too everyone's tastes, Leyton technical is owned by same company and had a far better experience there as it felt much more relaxed and had quieter areas to go and talk, best thing about this pub is the garden but can become very busy after 8 or on a nice day. Would give 2.5 but no option to
