About the Pub

The Red Lion has existed on this site for over 260 years and has many associations with Doncaster's most famous horse race: the St Leger. It was here in 1778 that the idea was first mooted for Doncaster's oldest horse race, the St Leger: an association commemorated by a wall display and a brass plate, showing winners from start to present. Converted to a JD Wetherspoon about 10 years ago. The lively atmosphere is popular with colourful local characters, especially on market days. Re-opened in May 2015, the pub is now a hotel and the original central horse-shoe shaped bar has been replaced with a long straight bar at the side equipped with twelve hand-pulls. Re-furbished to a high standard and greatly enlarged, an outside enclosed courtyard adds to the dining and drinking areas.
