Komakino . left this review about The Red Lion

Re-opened as The Red Lion earlier in the year after an incarnation as The Hammers, this is now under EI's 'Dirty Liquor' offshoot: the result of which has transformed this one-roomer into an Antic-ish wannabe, but all the better for it (perhaps ironic with their takeover of the nearby Denmark Arms). One central entrance door, which looks as if it could have been the Jug & Bottle judging by the non-functioning diagonally-slanted doors either side of it. An entrance-facing bar with beige leather booth seating in either window and standard tables and chairs on the periphery and middle. The bench seat extends against the right-hand wall, stopping at what appears to be a wooden DJ booth which itself leads onto the facilities and decently-sized beer garden. The wall to the right has its brick exposed, the floor is bare-boarded (as is the bar front) and there's a random selection of old electrical goods stacked up against the right-hand wall to boot. Three ales in the form of Wadworth Horizon, Truman's Runner and Ossett Nervous Turkey augmented by a real strawberry cider called Seacider on a fourth pump (it had a Day of the Dead-style skull on the pump clip). Busy with Sunday dinners and plenty of staff on to help. An indie-rock soundtrack played in the background and the impression was of a pub transformed for the better and this certainly justifies a visit as part of a triumvirate with The Denmark and Miller's.
