The Old Red Lion is situated next to Oakham's London pub (Oaka). I'd been there before, but somehow missed the Old Red Lion. It's now an Antic pub, with a fairly trendy (eclectic) interior. Although the building itself is ancient. Ales were Vim Volden, Hawkshead Bitter & Dark Star American Pale Ale & Revelation. They also had a cider - Blaengawney Hallets Blindfold and a perry, also from Hallets, one of my favourite producers. With lots of nooks and crannies and a convenient location near to Kennington tube, I can definitely recommend it.

An impromptu afternoon of ticking in Pimlico and Kennington brought me to Antic's Old Red Lion.

This is a large 2 roomed pub that has obviously fallen on hard times and has now been 'brought back to life' by Antic. The Antic style is all over this pub with lots of books, various unconnected nick nacks, open fire place, exposed brickwork and mish mashed furniture

4 ales on, I went for a pint of Wild Hop @ 5.0% Antic's own Brewery Volden. A very good pint & as always in Antic pubs the ale is served in a jug. You can of course request a straight glass if you really want one.

Out the back is a large open area with a couple of very small snugs that have original tiles exposed. The pub is electric and trendy but is quite dark inside due to the lights having energy saving light bulbs I guess!

There’s also a garden and food was being served. Off to Oaka next.

Feels like a country village pub. Not unappealing, but the real ale hasn't travelled well and the Christmas meal was, er..rather hit and miss!! Not a bad pub in this impoverished age however.

Can't recommend this place highly enough. Great range of Ales, friendly Barstaff and a good mix of customers. With the Mansion House right next door things are looking up in Kenninton.

Nice pub, shame no wheat beer on draught. The food was good and reasonably priced.

The bar staff are nice and friendly apart from the young female prat behind the bar that is a bit too far up her own backside that likes to think she kind of runs things here. Known the pub for years and never known such a stuck up prat.

That aside, its pleasant enough.

Would have given at least 7 if not for the aforementioned individual.

Will come back and post an update when she leaves to make room for the needed improvement.
