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
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.
