Red Lion

23 Crown Passage,
SW1Y 6PP

Although this pub is not on the London Regional Inventory, it is a grade II listed building. It has retained some original panelling and its bar counter although it must have lost a screen that would have created two separate rooms. The listing description is as follows: “Terraced public house. Mid C19. Yellow stock brick. 3 storeys. 3 windows wide. Simple pilastered public house front on ground floor with decorated stops to the cornice and 3 cast iron brackets with later lamps; early C20 leaded casement lights and glazed and panelled doors. Revealed sashes under flat gauged arches to upper floors, parapet with coping.”

The Red Lion featured on the Four Lions, a Badger and the Garden of Eden: Evening Crawl of Westminster and St James's in August 2008.
