About the Pub

Smartly renovated pub/hotel on the main Belper to Derby road. The bar to the right of the entrance has 5 hand pumps dispensing beers mainly from the Marston's range. There is a pizza oven and separate restaurant; meals can also be eaten in the bar.

Historic Interest

Horse drawn coaches passed through daily but ceased operating upon the opening of the railway around 1840. The Lion operated an omnibus from 1852 that attended all trains at the old Belper Station which at that time was on Goods Road.
