Still very much closed, and does not look like any visible works would have happened either...

According to the London Drinker- (Aug edition) published by CAMRA it is closed for refurbishment for at least 5 months commencing from May. It will remain a pub.

Looks like refurbishment is presently under way.
The external facia has been removed, revealing the original name of The Red Lion, a Truman Pub.

...wrong thread

Went past earlier and saw the window dressing. Google reveals Windmill Taverns is behind this Irish Boozer and Thai Kitchen and will be called Mc&Sons.

I assume the Twitter photo is not Union Street?

Great the pub is re-opening, but disappointed about the Thai food

Windmill runs most of the pubs around here now... says "reclaim your heritage" on the Twitter page, but seems to be about Irish heritage, the owners are maybe Irish, judging by the name? I'd rather it connected to the local history which in itself is rich enough.

Good point, lots of stories in the area to draw upon, but just another boozer serving the same food as two other pubs within 10 mins walking distance. Just a little dull!

Is that Windmill Pubs that run The Kings Arms on roupell st and the Windmill on the Cut? Neither of them seem particularly Irish, or am I misunderstanding?

An Irish boozer is a boozer where lot's of Irish people go, otherwise, it's just a boozer.
