The traditionally furnished pub features an inviting fireplace, red leather booths and the dart room has an authentic, vintage red phone booth with house phone imported from London. Intimate seating areas, soft lighting and a gleaming brass beer tap behind the barstool-dotted bar. Televisions visible for sporting events. The Red Lion Pub showcases the best beers on tap and a selective wine list, premium single malts along with fine spirits and cigar friendly.
Menu items include classic dishes such as bangers and mash; fish and chips; and Shepherds pie. We also have burgers, Indian quesadillas and free pizza bites at the bar Monday through Friday 3pm-7pm.
Places to pretend it's winter: Sit next to the fireplace in the little side room and pretend you're in bloody bitter cold England.
Really Authentic – I have been going to red lion now for a couple of years, the food is amazing (try chicken tika or indian egg rolls)the pub itself is really cozy and decorated well.
The wait staff are great, very friendly and helpful (my favourite one is even english!).Well worth a visit.
Great atmosphere, bad kitchen crew – Ordered the veggie samosas, had to send them back twice because they were stone cold in the center. Waitress was pleasant. Order the "sushi grade tuna salad" and it had to be send back because it was way over cooked. Good beer and wine selection and good atmosphere.
great drinks, great food, great fun! – Been to RL many times. Great for a rowdy fun night or an intimate date night out.
An overseas experience! – I had a lot of fun hanging out with my friends at the Red Lion Pub! The service is excellent and it was a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
I had a simple salad with chicken breast as I'm not as adventurous as some. I tasted my friends dishes (the Shepherd's Pie and Chicken Tikki Masala) and everything was so flavorful! The desserts were by far my favorite. The bread pudding and the chocolate mousse are delicious and decadent!
Old Speckled Hen .... on draft? i am in love! – Fresh Newcastle is VERY hard to find in Houston. I have never had a bad tap from here. I had a small tear form on the corner of my eye when I saw the Old Speckled Hen on draft too!! The fish and chips are AWESOME.
Come for Dinner, Stay for Dessert – There is a great range of food here--everything from traditional English fare like Shepherd's Pie to the Chicken Tikki Masala, which I think is the best thing on the menu. Except for maybe the desserts. The bread pudding is amazing, and the chocolate mousse cake (I forgot the actual name) is the best I've had.
GREAT FOOD – The food was absolutely delicicous. I had the quesadillas and dessert following. Both dishes were GREAT!! I have never had quesadillas taste so tasty. I will definitely be going back for another fabulous meal. Also, the service was good. Bartenders, waitresses and staff was very friendly and accommodating. Nice Ambiance as well.
Great food, beer, and atmosphere! – The Red Lion Pub is a great place to relax and unwind. The beer selection is excellent, as is the food. The Shepherd's pie is delicious, and the desserts are amazing. Give it a try! You won't be disappointed.
