From the outside the White Lion gives a sense of Olde England, that sense is confirmed as you walk through the old oak door at the main entrance. A little off the beaten path this ale and food pub nestles in the village just across from the ancient church. A fine range of beers are available, all kept very well,... More

Two of us met an old school friend who lives locally for lunch. What a gem, thatched roof, wattle and daub walls and two lit fires. Two of us had the hot pot, with loads of bread roll and butter plus pickled cabbage. The hot pot was full of large chunks of really render good quality steak and all for... More

The White Lion is the quintessential English pub in the beautiful hamlet of Barthomley. A wonderful pub where you can just kick back and have a quiet drink.

Just what you want when you find a little thatched pub, next to the church in a little tucked away village. Beams, creaky floors, open fires and welcome dogs! The choice of guest ales and cider makes you drink more than you intended, the service is friendly and the food at lunchtimes is great. We'll definitely be back!
