I remember this pub in the late 70s. It was a favourite on the Friday/Saturday night circuit before hitting the famous fleapit "Krumbles" just around the corner (commonlyy known as "The Pit.") Almost always a drunken scrap at some point, and everyone on the pull as long as they could still stand up. You never knew where you would end up next morning (sometimes better forgotten.) Anyway, back to the White Lion... it was always a bit more relaxed than the infamous Bears Head a few doors up the road. I wonder, do they still have that jar of pickled eggs on the bar? It had probably already been there for 10 years when I last saw it in 1990. But seriously, a decent pub and no doubt much nicer now than it was then.

Good old fashioned pub serving Speckled Hen and Bombardier bitter. Friendly service, good beer and homely surroundings including beer garden. Great!

Good pub, beers good. The landlady is friendly although sometimes a little bit moody. Young and old all drink together in somekind of perfect harmony. Good to see an old school pub making an effort and so doing well.
