Aqualung . left this review about The Red Lion

This pub seems to have fallen into the hands of the Beast From The East (Greene King). As noted below it's all open plan now but split into areas. There is a proper darts throw at the rear and a fair sized garden. Ominously the front area has an idiot booth over to the right. There was hardly anyone in on my Saturday afternoon visit.
There are two hand pumps but one was unused leaving just the Bury abomination of Old Speckled Hen. I noticed a keg GK Hardy & Hanson Mild so went for that (£2.75). It wasn't anything special.
I thought this place was pretty hopeless and wouldn't return.

The Red Lion is a fairly large three storey pub that is on Hucknalls main shopping street.
The pub used to be an Home Ales tied house with a very nice drink of Home bitter on the bar
Once inside the pub had been opened out but still retained distinct areas which used to be seperate rooms,there were two rooms off the entrance these had old style seating and looked pretty much unaltered for quite a while,the bar was further into the pub on the right and there was another room still further into the pub this was in darkenes but had flashing lighs on and very loud music playing,this was in mid afternoon.
The pub advertised Tetley cask outside but there were no real ales on here,the keg beer was Tetley smooth crap which it was.
The pub was fairly busy with a mixed bunch in.
