The Lion, Houndsditch Review

Top 10 things you need to know about The Lion, Houndsditch:

1) You know when you’ve had a long working day in the City of London and all you want is a warm meal with a stiff drink in a cosy place? The Lion, Houndsditch is just that place.

2) Is it a pub, a bar, or a tavern? Well, let’s see. It’s small, but what it lacks in size is more than made up by its charming, intimate vibe. The range of craft beers on tap could be a clue.

3) Take time to sit back in your plush leather seat and admire the Victorian decor, with its dark mahogany wood, old saloon-style frosted glass, and posters recalling the past glory of the old world.

4) Retro it may look, but there’s nothing old about The Lion’s menu. It’s hearty, modern British fare with an ever-changing drinks menu to boot.

5) Peckish? What better way to start than with the humble Scotch egg? Runny, golden yolk surrounded by meaty goodness encased in a crisp outer shell served with tangy Piccalilli. Order two. Honestly, you won’t want to share!

6) For mains, the chicken may have been fried a little too long for some discerning diners, but all is forgiven after a liberal dunk of that tangy buffalo sauce. The best menu option is the steak; done just right. It’s served with a side of chunky chips and a smooth garlicky butter so good even Dracula could be tempted.

7) Try something different from the cocktail menu: such as the sweet Rose and Lychee Martini. a sure hit with ladies; for the gents, a refreshing New Amsterdam Mule. The evolving menu promises a more sophisticated affair.

8) Come with a friend or two, and bag yourself a table in the dark, cosy corner for a relaxed night in. Planning a special event (birthday, leaving party, team celebration)? The Lion caters for a group functions too.

9) Just because it’s one of those places to eat near Liverpool Street station doesn’t mean it’s just for the suits. The cool kids of nearby Shoreditch and Whitechapel hang out here too. Fancy a quiet evening? Monday and Tuesday nights is your best bet.

10) So, is it a bar, a tavern, or a pub? Whatever you want to call it, it’s for all patrons of every taste. One thing is for sure, you’re in for a warm welcome, an old world away from the towering skyscrapers of The City.
