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

Lovely theatre upstairs in the pub. Small and very atmospheric. The pub is fine too. There is only one ladies toilet so you need to go before the show!

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

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.

Clerkenwell
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

I believe so -- the box office is at the back of the pub and you go up a flight of stairs from there. There is probably an emergency exit but no other entrance.

I found the stairs quite steep and very narrow. there is a handrail but someone with mobility issues might find it challenging both going up and down. check with the venue.
