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...More
