“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Beautifully finished interior, this place feels really special. The food is amazing - the kitchen really know what they are doing. Smoked haddock was delicious. The steak pie was superbly judged, presented with a jug of gravy, minted peas and the best chips I've had in a long time. A must for your Weymouth itinerary.

Food excellent, all the staff are wonderful, especially the cheery landlord. I'll be back to sample their pie and ale week.

“Always Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is the best located pub in Weymouth being a total sun trap in the summer months. The atmosphere is always good and all ages mix at this cosmopolitan venue. The food is excellent value, and a wide variety of drinks are always available.

“Great pub just off the harbour with plenty of outside seating.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013

The Red Lion is favourite, having been there regularly when down visiting relatives. This time I was there out of season, and it it still maintains good food along with local beers. Plenty of outside seating (although too cold in February). Having been decorated over the last year it it really looks good inside. Staff were friendly and traditional pub food very good. I will return again in the spring.
