New Red Lion, 181 Harrow Road, Paddington W2

Paddington pub history index

A pub called the Red Lion has existed in this vicinity since at least 1730. A Courage pub, this was situated on the south side of Harrow Road at the east junction with Westbourne Bridge. It was standing by 1962 but was presumably demolished as part of the A40 (M) Westway road project which opened on 12th October 1967. The annotated photo shows the broad location and massing of the pub looking east towards Westbourne Bridge. ***

The Red Lion was run by my Uncle Tom Swain during the war years and up to the early fifties he then went onto the Half Moon in Herne Hill which may still be there. *
