The Lion and Unicorn

Rupert and Jo Clevely, co-founders of the award winning pub group Geronimo Inns, launched The Lion and Unicorn in Kentish Town, London in May 2011.

Situated below a working theatre, The Lion and Unicorn features a re-designed dining room and two garden areas. A long standing local pub, it will remain a location where diners can enjoy fresh British produce, real ales, and a wide selection of spirits and wines.

The Lion and Unicorn serve a range of real ales from a prominent central bank behind the bar, with favourites including Doombar, Dark Star, Redemption and Young’s PA. The extensive wine list, chosen by Master of Wine John Clevely, is accompanied by a selection of classic cocktails and a distinctive ‘stickies’ list featuring a range of digestifs such as Cognac, Armagnac, Calvados, Madiera, Sloe Gin, and fine Malt Whiskey’s. Soft drinks on the menu include real milkshakes and juices by the Feel Good Drinks Co.

The food menu serves a range of British classics as well as an extensive range of bar snacks. Theatre goers can choose to enjoy a starter and main course pre performance and a pudding after the curtain goes down and popcorn and ice cream tubs are always available at the bar. The Lion and Unicorn will also offer Steak specials each Wednesday and Fish specials available every Friday with additional BBQs and Hog Roasts in the summer months.

The main menu is in keeping with Geronimo Inns’ traditional approach, which is to create affordable food that is simply constructed and effectively delivered.
