"The Lower Red has developed a disappointing attitude problem since the last change of management. The premises are still delightful, and the beer range just as extensive, but service can be slow and surly (I walked out a couple of weeks ago when the I heard the barman use the f-word to some customers), short measures are the rule rather than the exception, and the place is infested by bar-hogging cliques who make non-regulars feel quite unwelcome."

"One of the best real ale pubs in SE England. Never fewer than 7 different beers available, plus some Belgian beers plus wholesome grub at lunchtimes. Runs its own beer festivals. Teenage lager louts will hate it, but for everyone else it has a lot to offer. A "must visit" pub."

"Another Mecca for real ale lovers in St Albans. The left hand bar known as the "Lower Lower Red Lion" has an ever changing range of guest beers from microbreweries plus good regulars. The walk back up the hill into St. Albans can be a little challenging after a visit, but donít let that put you off."
