The Lion can be found in the backstreets between Teddington and Hampton Wick. There are drinking areas all around the central bar, which dispenses Doom Bar, Naked Ladies & Shere Drop. It was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday night, given its out of the way location. Food appeared to be fairly popular. The interior is fairly bright. But, it makes for a nice space for drinking or dining. One of the better pubs we tried in the area.

I haven't been in the Red Lion since it was the CAMRA London pub of the year back in the day, but was in the area last Sunday so looked the place up..
Oh dear....another one f**ked up by the Gastro pub make over crew and has succumbed to the usual sterile farrow & Ball pastel shades characterless make over. Also bad move to visit on Sunday as it was overrun by families whose parents are unable or have no interest in controlling their little brats who were running amok throughout the pub.
For the record there were three beers available and one of these was a decent pint from the Twickenham brewery, but it wasn't a pleasant experience drinking it here..
Sad, this used to be a great pub.

I was around these parts yesterday and fancied a pint. I used to live locally at Elton Close therefore, I always like to pay a visit to one the local pubs for ole times sake.

On my walk back from Kingston I planned to stop for refreshment but was undecided on the venue. The pub I tended to use most frequently when I lived locally was The Old Kings Head however, when I went past there was not a single person in there so gave it a sweve for fear of looking like a saddo. The Swan looked shut (although it was probably open) and the Foresters was the same story as the OKH. The once magnificent Stykers Railway has long since been converted into a house by some toff which left one choice....The Lion.

My last review wasn't overly complimentary but this place has grown on me a bit. Whilst I did prefer the Lion before when it was a proper boozer with carpets and pool table/dartboard etc I did find it quite pleasant and really enjoyed my pint of Surrey Hills Shere Drop. Other ales were Doom Bore and one from Twickenham with one hand pull unused (at the time anyway) Prices are average for the area

There is a large area at the back of the pub near the kitchen which is set up for dining so there is plenty of room to just go for wet refreshment. The garden looks like it has been restored to somewhere near its former glory and looked like it would be good for the warmer months.

My rating has increased and I hope to go in again sometime in the not so distant future (well less than decade away at least)

I have to agree with Meurglys on this one.

I used to pop in to this pub from time to time when I lived at Elton Close a stone's throw away. I worked in Twickenham and used to get the train back to Teddington and walk from there to get a bit of excercise to try to combat my rapidly expanding gut (due to the gallons of beer being poured down my neck)

The Lion was my last oasis of peace before returning to moaning child/nagging missus etc. Pub had plenty of character back then. Always a good selection of well kept ales, a pool table and a nice garden.

After the refurb the place has become a bit sterile and lost its soul unfortunately. Place is now very foody and is aimed at people such as Pubfan67 and his boring family... not really one for me anymore.
