Popped in for a couple on Sunday afternoon. Had well kept pints of Truman's Runner and Hackney Best. Good to see a chain pub supporting local microbreweries! Nice traditional and cosy interior and clean toilets. Could have lived without the TV showing football, especially as there was music playing as well. Worth popping in for a couple if you're in the area.

Terrible on all counts. I arranged a private booking of the function room at this pub. I visited the pub a week before the event, a colleague visited a few days before the event. Everything was agreed: our group would have exclusive use of the function room for two hours. When we arrived, they weren't ready for us even though it was after the agreed time. Thge two people from another group showed up. We told them we'd hired the room for our group. they told us they'd hired it for their group. The room had been double booked and was far too small for both groups to use. The attitude of the staff in trying to resolve this problem was appalling. They did not apologise and did not offer any kind of solution. We ended up at the Flying Horse pub in Wilson Street, just up the road from this one. At no notice at all, they let us use their function room for free. We love the Flying Horse. The Red Lion showed a dismal lack of professionalism in every way. Avoid!

Popular and traditional street corner pub just off Moorgate. The beer range was Bath Gem, Directors, Pedigree, Youngs London Gold and Sharp's Doom Bar on my Thursday visit. The bar was decorated with large flags of World Cup competing nations, something which I found a little unnecessary. There were only 3 tables that I could see, and all seating was on stools. A single TV was showing Sky Sports News. There was a games machine in one corner. The snob screens are a nice feature and I particularly enjoyed the dim lighting which made for a pleasant ambience. All too often, lighting in pubs is far too harsh these days. I'm sure I've visited this pub before at a weekend, as it's one of the very few open outside the working week. I'll probably be back again some time.

Was pleasantly surprised to find an open pub in the city on a Saturday. Popped in for a couple of what turned out to be very well kept pints (Buttcombe and Doombar). I'll definitely be back.

Really nice traditional pub (especially for this area). Relaxed atmosphere. well kept beers and I'll definitely be back when I'm next in the area.
