The only Wetherspoons in Skegness. The Red Lion is positioned very close to the main town, so handy for coming for a pint or some food after looking round the town, pier, arcades....

This building was originally the Lion Hotel, built in 1881, with a large, red, stone lion on the roof. In 1904, the lion was placed at ground level and the pub soon became known as The Red Lion, and its location dubbed Lion's Corner.

The bright, bustling pub of today celebrates a history dating from 1881. This was when it first opened under the ownership of building-contractor-turned-landlord Samuel Clarke, from Nottinghamshire. A sandstone lion, carved by Richard Winn of Grimsby, was originally placed on top of the building over the corner entrance of this pub. The six-hundredweight lion, from which the pub got its name, was brought to pavement-level, for safety reasons, in 1904.

Always busy as you would expect. The pub seems to be split in two regarding the clientele, it feels like locals one side of the pub and tourists on the other.

We came on a busy Friday lunch time after a very long train journey, a pint was very much needed. A pint of Exmoor Gold was the winner of the day for me. My pint tasted just fine. We did not have any food this time but we have had food in the past and it has always been fine.

Now the toilets for both ladies and gents are located upstairs through the dining area bit.

After climbing the stairs we arrive at the gents.

Quite large loos in here. We have a wooden floor, cream tiles with a blue border running round the bog.

The toilet is split in two with three cubicles to the left, just one wash sink in the middle which is facing you as you walk in. There are three urinals to the right hand side of the bog with just one single urinal on the opposite wall and another two sinks.

Very packed in here with p*ssing and sh*tting blokes as you could expect when we entered the bog. So snapping a few pics away was hard work.

The cubicle was clean, with a white toilet brush provided and enough bog roll.

All good here for a busy seaside pub.

we rate-7/10.
