The Red Lion (Duke Of York St.), St. James
The Red Lion is an old-style traditional pub. It's small, has great beers and a stunning interior. This is a great pub to come to when you are out and about in the West End and fancy a quiet pub - unfortunately, the world and his mother often has had the same idea so it's seldom one you'll get a bit of peace in. However, if you time your visit with precision you'll be suitably rewarded. Lethal stairs to the toilets when you've had a few, though.

A real gem of a place, this, with some lovely ales, served at the right temperature, and, importantly, no TV, no machines, and no music. When the sun shines on the front, it's gorgeous inside with all that glass and mirrors. It does get quite busy, but never annoyingly so, as far as I can tell.

Given the wasteland that is the British pub these days, a situation inflicted by the breweries, pubcos, antismoking regulations and the demand for the gastro pub, it is a delight to find this wonderful pub wihich is small, intimate and gloriously decorated with so much engraved glass and mirrors that would be impossible to replicate. If Fullers did take this on of late, then it is a tribute to a firm that believes in that rarest of institutions, The Great British Pub.
