The Red Lion is one of Weymouth’s finest and most famous pubs. It is recognised for being the pub nearest to the Weymouth R.N.L.I. and is known as the lifeboat man’s pub. On the walls are great pictures and artifacts from the history of the lifeboat and its crews over the years in Weymouth. The Red Lion is also famous for being the Old Devenish Brewery ‘Tap’. The Devenish Brewery (now closed) is opposite the Red Lion in Hope Square. The history and heritage of being an ale house is reflected in the pub too with one wall made from old barrels originally from the brewery. On the back bar are over 60 rums to celebrate the pubs naval and seafaring connections and of course the food menu reflects the abundance of seafood available here in Weymouth. The Red Lion has always been famous for its ales and still is today, but now the pub has developed a good name for its home cooked food and amazing collection of rums and whiskies on its splendid back bar shelves. The Pub has its own ‘bible’ of whiskies and rums for enthusiasts to look through.
