|scotty2007 has posted on BITE only three times,all three posts concern the Red Lion which he praises to the hilt and virtually no other poster has a good word to say about the place, he is the manager or a paid stooge, the consensus is clear that this pub has rude and unpleasant manager and is poorly rated. How childish and obvious can you get! I recently looked in the door on a nice sunny day and the place was empty, the public have voted with their feet.|

|We didn't go here on the first night of our three night stay in Weymouth because of the poor reviews here............BIG mistake.|
Visited on Tuesday 24th Sept and just loved the place, a proper pub with a great range of 5 different beers, even selling one Hopback one, Redsell's EKG for £2-50.
The food was also lovely and the bar-staff VERY friendly, just goes to show that you should really take the comments on this site with a pinch of salt and try the pubs for yourself (trust me though, this is a good pub).

|The manager is one of the rudest men in Weymouth. He pays his bar staff very poorly if at all sometimes and the kitchen is disgusting....I have been in there........the chef is doing his best to produce good food but is constantly scuppered by the management. Last week the main fridge went down and was found to be above the recommended temperature by a large margin.... and the boss (Brian) told the Chef to serve the crab that was in it to the cutomers and an Audible argument between chef and boss was heard. This pub should come with a health warning. The rest of the staff including the deputy management are actually good people trying to work in a bad situation...that which is brought about by the brutish boss Brian. If you are going to go to any pub in weymouth make sure its not this one.|

|As a regular visitor to this pub i know for a fact it has nothing to do with Punch. I have also been told the reason it is not listed in the Good Beer Guide is due to the fact the local Camra guy is not allowed to bring his dog in.....how petty is that?? I'm thinking the previous poster is that same person. I find it strange that The Good Pub Guide list this pub as the only highly recommended pub in Weymouth and GBG have no mention whatsoever but they do list every Wetherspoons in the country. You wouldn't have to dig too deep to see where their priorities lie...........|

|Just to correct Scotty2007, this is NOT a Free House despite the claim Free Trade (what on earth does that mean anyway) on the pub sign. Before the refurb it used to claim to be a Free House. It is actually one of five pubs run by a small pub company based in Cheshire called Cheshire cat Pubs & Bars Ltd. They don't even own the pub but lease it from the giant pub chain Punch. However this pub has always been economical with the truth - it claimed to be Weymouth's favourite pub back in 2009 before it was even re-opened.|
