I've been drinking in the Old Red Lion on and off for a while. Staff are brilliant and the drinks are varied at great prices for a central London pub.
First time theatre goer there and now I'm hooked. Intimate setting where we saw Lamplighters...More
Saw Plastic here and it was a good, intimate venue. However, I think they sell too many tickets for the venue as there were people sitting on the stairs which isn’t great when you’ve paid for a ticket! Also the football was on just before,...More
When travelling out with friends for a bit of a day out drinking in London, we always like to stop at the Old Red Lion as a first stop. It's welcoming, quirky and feels homely with a cute dog mooching around to greet you and...More
I've been to a few shows at the Old Red Lion Theatre and it's always a great time. It's very small with limited seating and they really pack everybody in, but for me that just adds to the experience. Given the size, you're right on...More
Brilliant setting to round off an evening! The venue has so much character every which way you choose to look, however, it's the people in attendance that really makes this venue. Once inside, you feel surrounded by individuals who do not want to just 'Fit-in'...More
Located upstairs from a popular local pub, this intimate theatre has comfortable bench seating for about 60. The start of the play was delayed until the Arsenal-Chelsea match wrapped up on the big screens in the pub (the cheering was constant) but the wait was...More
I visited this theatre with a friend in Feb 2017 when we went to see The Listening Room, a drama about restorative justice. The stairs leading up to the theatre (above a busy pub and you can take your drinks up there) are quite steep...More
4 of us went to see 'Benighted' last week. The play was enjoyable and the cast were very good. However - I don't know who is responsible for ticket sales and numbers but they clearly can't count! The seating is unallocated and the theatre was...More
We only stopped by for a pre Theatre drink, Sadlers Wells is just down the road.
Friendly staff reasonably priced drinks loads of atmosphere definitely not boutique.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site of an ancient meat market which remains in operation today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough time wondering through the area's maze of streets and you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
models passing between Clerkenwell's handful of fashion houses. Far outnumbering the models are craftspeople and designers, many of them are more than happy to welcome visitors into their studios and showrooms.
