In the early 20th Century the pub's interior was remodelled by the sculptor Henry Poole, who created a vision straight out of medieval England. The Red Lion claims to have the second oldest continuous beer licence in London. For most of the 20th Century the pub's official name was The York Minster.

If you're looking for the cheapest pint in the city, you won't find it here, but the unique atmosphere and great location along the Thames make the price worth it.
