Red Lion132 Stoke Newington Church Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Reopened March 2017. An inn called the Red Lion stood on this site in 1697 and behind it used to be the local lock-up and fire station. It went through a thorough refurbishment in 1988 when it became the Magpie and Stump, part of the Saxon Inns chain and became the Tup in 1998. Secluded garden. The older Truman's panels featuring the "Red Lion" name are still there and the (full) name is now picked out in a different colour of paint. Hence it seems to have reverted to Red Lion, at least by default. To try and protect it as a pub, an ACV app was filed on 04/01/2017. Decent keg beers include 40FT Pale, Beavertown Gamma Ray, Brixton Electric IPA, Camden Pale and Unfiltered Hells, Chapel Down Curious, Estrella Damm, Five Points XPA, Magic Rock Salty Kiss, Redchurch Brick Lane Lager.
