About the Pub

The oldest pub in Withington (also Grade II listed) and the only one of the three Lions in the village remaining. This 17th century inn appears to be a ‘pub for all seasons’. The long, low whitewashed exterior festooned with hanging baskets gives an ‘olde worlde’ impression immediately at contrast to the ‘Free WiFi’ sign. The interior presents a similar bewildering contrast, with a low-ceilinged vault area opening up into a larger bar with a more mainstream feel that leads off into a cavernous conservatory. Behind this there is also a magnificent bowling green with extensive outdoor seating around it, making this a very popular pub in summer. However this mix of environments encourages a broad mix of clientele, although judging by the number of TV screens, their love of sport as well as beer provides them with a common ground. Quiz on Mon; Poker on Thu/Sun; Motown night every second and last Sat of the month.
