About Us

The Lion is a cosy little family-run, family-friendly pub, found off the beaten track in deepest, darkest Cliftonwood. Step inside and enjoy a warm welcome, whether as a seasoned local or inquisitive newcomer. Enjoy the cosy fires on chilly nights or the compact and bijou garden and adjoining park on balmy warm ones.

The kitchen is open every day, with the exception of Mondays and Tuesdys, and all the food is cooked from scratch. From homemade bread, a slightly off-the-wall range of burgers, risottos and legendary Scotch eggs, to indulgent Sunday lunches, the frequently changing menu offers something for everyone – it’s mostly gluten-free and includes dishes for vegetarians and vegans too.

With a lovingly selected wine list and carefully nurtured cask ales, The Lion is the pride of Cliftonwood.

The Lion will be closed from 1pm on Christmas day and will reopen 3.30pm on new years eve.
