Tucked away down a side street in the ever-so-posh St. James's, The Red Lion is a charming boozer. Its age and location may suggest a you'd encounter a soulless dive aimed purely at tourists, but by and large this is as genuine and a genial a pub as you'll find. The TV is muted on and there's no music, but what you do get is well-kept beer (Adnam's/Tribute), a cracking selection of whiskies and excellent sandwiches, all served up by some of the politest bar staff in town. It also helps that many of the punters - from businessmen to builders - are up for a natter. Granted, it can get very busy on weeknights (try for a seat upstairs if so) but it's a handy hideaway of a Saturday. If you're after a warm and comfortable pub, give The Red Lion a look. (Closed Sunday).

This is an incredible traditional old (possibly the 2nd oldest in London?) pub, located down a gaslit alley across from St James' Palace. The staff here are incredibly friendly, and the atmosphere has been extremely welcoming and convivial on all of our visits. My other half says the beer gets top marks, too! Well worth a visit.

Though the food was less than mediocre, but it was served to us quickly. It was easy to get a seat.
