Alternative experimental post musette folk
Garance Louis. Extrovert, eccentric composer, singer and accordionist from Perpignan, who finds a fresh and new way of interpreting the French Chanson tradition with her formidable band The Mitochondries. Her band is a mixture of Tom Waits, Edith Piaf and Frank Zappa, with the melancholy softness of alternative post-musette songwriting. Garance has appeared in the bars and street corners of her adoptive London for 4 years, always surrounded by the most curiously talented musicians she can find.
The ‘local’ is an age-old part of British tradition. At the centre of the community it is a place that we head to for some filling fare, quenching drinks and a generally good knees-up! At The Red Lion we have bought this tried and tested formula into the 21st century. Since our humble beginnings in 2011 we have transformed this previously neglected grand old building into the bustling hub of Leytonstone.
Our kitchen serves an ever-changing menu in keeping with seasonal produce and tastes. Our chefs use nothing but fresh seasonal ingredients. Don’t miss our Sunday feasts with a delectable selection of roast meats and equally delicious vegetarian fare, all dished up with Bloody Marys and board games. With the more formal dining area combined with casual bar seating and our rather impressive beer garden (apologies for the humility!) you’re spoilt for choice. We offer table service inside and have a separate lunch and dinner menu. Keep an eye out for our artisan bar snacks perfect to accompany a pint with.
Beer fans rejoice! With ten hand pumps, five guest keg lines and an innovative range of bottled beers, our ethos is simple; consistently high standards, taste and choice. Artisan wines and spirits make up our expansive core range alongside our own house selection, so you can choose your own delectable tipple. Cider lovers never fear; we have a great range of keg, box and bottled ciders. For a full list of beverages, please see our drinks menu.
At The Red Lion we recognise our place in the community, not just as a business but as a place to meet, eat and be merry. Our events allow us to bring people from the local area, and often further afield, together in an enjoyable and memorable atmosphere. From hosting some of the biggest names in hip hop, to throwing New Year’s parties of epic proportions, we’ve always got a surprise up our sleeve. No one’s ever excluded with events spanning the Leytonstone festival, our quirky Monday quiz night and our appreciative charity Christmas dinner for the areas’ older residents.
