About The Red Lion & Sun

As a pub for locals, the genuine warmth of the staff, who are keen to build on their core base of regulars, is evident from the start. Efficient and keen for a spot of a banter, they are friendly to newcomers and you’ll soon feel like this is only one of several visits you’ve made to the Red Lion and Sun. A gastropub edge doesn’t encroach on the drinkers here, either, with a happy lack of pretension

Superb, classy pub! Gourmet, high quality cuisine... just love the mussel starter in a rich cream sauce....enjoy the Sunday Roast here...it's so popular that you need reservations!

The lamb was so tender it melted in your mouth!...more

What I like about the Red Lion & Sun is that I feel so much at home every time I go there: there's something to be said about low ceilings, wooden interior and a...more

This is going to be a weird post for this pub since we actually attended a private function here. Heath the landlord will kill my friends for this but we actually went to a wedding reception here (but they don't do wedding receptions, okay???)

Purple Pineapple and Pluto, Orange Antelope and Venus (Pub names make me giggle)

This off the beaten track pub, we stumbled upon while waiting for a tardy bus turned, out to be a chance to feel separated from the buzzing motorways and noise pollution of London.

While Lions may not be Red, the Sun was surely shining on me, plunked happily in the rear garden. The goat's cheese and tomato...more

The Red Lion and Sun is an impressive gastropub situated in the beautiful Highgate Village. The inside of The Red Lion has that slightly darkened, old-fashioned feel that suits traditional pubs well. What attracted me to the place wasn't its traditional décor; it was its impressive front garden with a multitude of tables to dine at.
