Russians, Stags and Knights

Named in honour of the Redan victory over Russia in 1855

Location: 1 Westbourne Road, W2 4UA

Description: A pub with real history this...

The 'Redan' was named in honour of the British and French victory over the Russians of Redan in South Crimea in 1855.

In Plantagenet times, stags were chased in the district surrounding the tavern, and the pub marks the spot where a knight was accidentally killed whilst hunting with King Henry II.

The tavern was originally known as the Redan Stores and the thoroughfare now known as Queensway was then called Black Lion Lane.

The pub today is a distinguished example of a mid-Victorian establishment and is notable for its engraved mirrors and hand-carved mahogany bar.
