Old Red Lion, Kennington, London   1 comment

 

I had Dexy’s Midnight Runners tunes stuck in my head so the collection of blues on the tannoy in the Old Red Lion was a soothing distraction.  The Old in the Old Red Lion does not refer to the staff or clientele, though, and I doubt anyone besides me in there Thursday afternoon was even born before any of this music was recorded.

 

 

That said, the bar is sublime (and, again, some of these guys were probably conceived to Sublime) with a line of interesting ales on the pumps to choose from and at a lower price than most hipster joints (which I don’t think this one qualifies as — it’s just a good local that happens to be populated by children).  In fact, the prices here seem better than in most bars in London save for Wetherspoons houses.

 

 

The bar to the left, as you enter from the street, is a bit quieter and seems geared toward food what with the dining sort of tables and the kitchen right there and all.

 

 

It was Quiz Night albeit hours away.  They also have a Rockabilly DJ night and Folk Sessions on the calendar.  It’s an easy find, too, just across from Kennington Station a couple of stops down the Northern Line from Westminster.
