Red Lion, Holborn, London   2 comments

Red Lion Holborn

The wife had a 1 o’clock appointment in London that got pushed back — at 12:30 — by another half hour so we wandered the neighbourhood to kill some time.  We chanced upon the park in Red Lion Square where I was happy to spot a statue of one of my heroes, Bertie Russell:

“The time enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.” Bertrand Russell, whose birthday is next week

 

Needing a place to wait out the impending rains, we trundled down Red Lion Street to the Old Red Lion (the neighbourhood is not called Red Lion, but this was getting strange).  We were the only customers — and at these prices, no wonder — until we took up residence in the window seats when suddenly all these suits started arriving.  The tariffs must be set to discourage riff raff like us…and, it is working!

Here it is.
