The White Lion, Allesley, a country pub in Coventry
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
Originally a family home and then a shop, The White Lion was a fully licensed pub restaurant by 1835. Before this the village shop sold local beer, but it was forbidden to drink on the premises, so the farmers drank their beer in a hedge down the lane. The White Lion now welcomes guests to join us in comfortable surroundings to relax and unwind.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
