Red Lion Pub

2316 S. Shepherd Houston, TX 77019 | River Oaks | 713-782-3030

Location Description:

Don't let the red pleather-upholstered booths and faux Tudor timbers fool you. This isn't just another fake British pub. This is an authentically fake British pub. Founder and owner Craig Mallinson is the son of British folk singer Sarah Mallinson, and he bakes the Cornish pasties himself. He even has the "Fruity" variety of H&P sauce to slather on your sausage rolls. Order up a hearty ale to go with your curry and prepare to into a world of pleasure. Or sleep.
