Square Meal Review of The Red Lion ?

Regulars won’t thank us for revealing it, but this is a Mayfair secret worth sharing. Tucked down a mews, this bare-floored, wood-panelled boozer is as authentic as it gets: it was an 18th century country inn before Mayfair was even a twinkle in developers’ eyes. Greene King, Bombardier & Young’s are hand-pulled by a landlord straight out of central casting, while fish & chips, scampi & pies served in a starchy restaurant provide a trip down memory lane for anyone over 40. That includes sex bomb Tom Jones, who has declared this his favourite London pub.
