About the Pub

Once a traditional 3 bar mock-tudor style pub the Lion has moved with the times with light coloured wood on its exterior façades and a single large room inside. A pair of Chesterfield sofas dominate the front part of the pub and more leather sofas on a raised platform make up cosy alcove dubbed the 'VIP' area. Plenty of modern artwork decorates the walls and even the ceiling. The art decoration also extends outside to the small courtyard. More traditionally there is a pool table & table football. Fairly quiet on weekday lunchtimes, the pub joins in with the local 'night time economy' at weekends with Karaoke Thursdays, A DJ Friday & Saturday evenings and a free jukebox on Sundays.
