Actually, looks like this is already fixed in emacs 25.2 too.

To fix it locally in emacs 25.1, you need need to add this to your config:

(with-eval-after-load 'eww
  (defun eww-tag-meta (dom)
    (when (and (cl-equalp (dom-attr dom 'http-equiv) "refresh")
      (< eww-redirect-level 5))
      (when-let (refresh (dom-attr dom 'content))
(when (or (string-match "^\\([0-9]+\\) *;.*url=\"\\([^\"]+\\)\"" refresh)
 (string-match "^\\([0-9]+\\) *;.*url='\\([^']+\\)'" refresh)
 (string-match "^\\([0-9]+\\) *;.*url=\\([^ ]+\\)" refresh))
 (let ((timeout (match-string 1 refresh))
(url (match-string 2 refresh))
(eww-redirect-level (1+ eww-redirect-level)))
   (if (equal timeout "0")
(eww (shr-expand-url url))
     (eww-tag-a
      (dom-node 'a `((href . ,(shr-expand-url url)))
(format "Auto refresh in %s second%s disabled"
timeout
(if (equal timeout "1")
    ""
  "s")))))))))))

But, please, just update to 25.2 :)
