Are you looking for a friendly local boozer serving real ale, a darts team, a pool table, or somewhere to hold a party or private function? Or are you just interested in the origin of the UK's pub names?
Pubs with animal names such as The Lion generally refer to hunting. When combined with colours, eg. The Red Lion, this usually refers to heraldry. A red lion was on the badge of John of Gaunt, for example, and is one of the most common charges in coats of arms. Therefore the Red Lion as a pub name probably has multiple origins which might explain its prevalence.
A man walks into a bar with an alligator under his arm, and asks "do you serve lawyers here?". The landlord says, "yes, of course we do". So the man says "OK - I'll have a beer for myself, and a lawyer for Snappy!"
