Drink at the Old Red Lion, Kennington

Built in 1929 in mock Tudor style on the site of an earlier pub which traces its history back to the mid-18th century, the Old Red Lion in Kennington is a decent local pub with Grade II listing an interesting architectural style inside and out. Its inter-war quirks continue throughout, and whilst much of the interior is now given over to a modern idea of style, it retains its two bars separated by low doors, and its adzed oak ceiling and interesting beams.

It's even worth a visit apart from its architecture, with decent beers, friendly staff and plenty of board games, dolls houses and that sort of thing. They claim  like many London boozers to "pride themselves on their relaxed and friendly atmosphere that emanates the feel of a village local", but to be honest, when your author visited last week, that wasn't far off the mark.
