  • The Red Lion
    A pub that celebrates its naval history accordingly with over 80 rums behind the bar (they even have a separate menu for them!) The Red Lion is also the closest pub to Weymouth’s RNLI, meaning there’s lots of lifeboat photographs and artefacts displayed on the walls. The pub has cosy, sinking armchairs hidden away in nooks and a light, spacious and modern dining area. The pub has a good choice of quality pub food, serving dishes like local ale-battered Haddock and the awesome homemade Steak and ‘Lifeboat’ Ale Pie served with minted peas. Definitely one of Weymouth’s best pubs.
