Bar Type(s)

On a cold and rainy night, there’s nothing like sipping a 15-year-old Laphroaig Scotch by the fireplace at the Red Lion on S. Shepherd. This is the most authentic British pub in the city, according to no less of an authority than the British ex-husband of a Houstonia editor; furthermore, now that Feast is gone, there’s no other place in town to get a proper Sunday roast. The pleasantly family-friendly vibe and comfortable lounge-like seating all add to this pub’s legitimacy, as does the hybrid Indian-British menu. This is simply the perfect spot, whether you’re taking Mum for seared sea scallops over black truffle mash and a pot of tea, or meeting the lads for a pint of Fuller’s or a round of Smithwick’s—both on draft here.
