Very much a gastro pub with several tables already reserved for diners. However unlike many gastros there is a good selection of real ales.
Four Oakham ales and a Batemans guest ale were on when I visited recently after the cricket.
Quite a few drinkers present, mainly males having a drink after a day at the Oval which is about 15mns walk away.
The décor was smart. I understand the place was renovated awhile ago.
Have to mention the friendly staff too!

Very nicely gentrified pub/gastro bar at the moment. Great place to go for a date, have a good meal. Great interiors. I remember this pub as it was in 2000-2002. Very simple, old interiors, small selection of beers and spirits but man....that place had its own great character then! There was a Polish barman there who used to play some great tunes and had a bit of an attitude at times. There was a wonderful TV watching area - almost like a small cinema where you could watch football and music clips on MTV. The place was very spacious with some fantastic, old furniture and simple and rough local customers. The beer was cheap and of good quality. Good times.
Now....much busier than it used to be but much more expensive and completely different place.

A few steps from the Old red Lion is Oakhams Ales from Leicestershire flagship pub & restaurant. Oaka is very different to Old Red Lion in that it’s a very nice done up pub which is divided half as a bar and the other half as more of a dining area.

Appears in the 2015 GBG so it was on my “tick list”. Relatively quiet with 2 couples finishing their lunch and 2 guys have a quick drink. I took a stool at the bar and chose from the 5 Oakham ales across the 10 hand pumps, worth noting that each ale was on twice. 3 stronger abv ales are available on the keg lines.

I had halves of Bishops' Farewell @ 4.6% and The Burglar @ 4.9%. £4.00 for 2 halves which I assume is the cost of a pint. Both decent ales with no compliant of the quality.

Rugby world cup on silent on the television with ambient music playing gave the place a bit of atmosphere but with no many punters in it was hard to gauge what the pub would be like when’s busy. I assume it does get busy at it’s almost bang opposite Kennington underground station.

Went in here before cricket at the Oval on Friday. It wasn't quite what I was expecting. 3 ales were on - Citra, JHB & Bishop's Farewell. Their Oaple cider produced in collaboration with Hogans was on one pump. But there turned out to be very little of it in a bag in the fridge. It was very cloudy and I was warned of this. But it still tasted fine. I guess some people are put off by the cloudiness. The bar itself is L-shaped with the one side taken up by a dining area, where tables are made up and unavailable for drinkers. This leaves very little drinking space. Nevertheless I did still manage to find a table and the pub is far enough from the Oval to ensure it doesn't get too busy. Not overly impressed and I noticed that the pub nextdoor had more ales on and from more than just the one brewery.

As a keen student of Oakham ales, I was keen to try this place and the Citra was as good as I'd come to expect. Other than that, it's something of a curiosity, however - a pan -Asian restaurant area looks to deliver good, albeit over priced, food but the fact that takes over half the pub along with a needless big screen TV and some overly modern furnishing makes this something of a missed opportunity. That said, with drinks like this, still well worth a visit.
