About the Pub

A traditional pub in a two hundred year old sandstone building close to the centre of West Kirby. The pub is a little quirky and laid out over several different levels with lots of cosy nooks to sit in along with a real fire to keep you warm in winter. During warmer months you can enjoy the lovely beer garden to the rear. There is a quiz on Monday night.

Historic Interest

Dates back to at least 1891 as a pub, acquired by Birkenhead Brewery. Selling Whitbread beers in the 1980s. The old photo of the two gents sitting in the garden of the White Lion is of Thomas Ryan (left) and his son Frank. Thomas was licensee of the White Lion in the early 1950s and had previously been licensee of the Canada Hotel in Birkenhead which was destroyed by bombing in 1941. His son Frank was the licensee of the Bank of Ireland in Birkenhead from 1948 until 1962. After Thomas retired from the White Lion he was succeeded by his daughter Annie Teresa Davies (known to the family as Nancy).
