Great Beer & Company
since 1806

Once part of a hotel, the White Lion has been a pub since at least 1806 when the landlord was one Abraham Whitlaw. Currently owned by the Wickwar Brewing Co

Historic setting with legendary ale

The White Lion has a unique and cosy atmosphere due to the size and clientele which are made up of regulars, passers-by and Bristolian folk. Perfect for general conversation and occasionally a sing song. There is also an outdoor area which in the warm weather is perfect to sit out and enjoy the sun.

The first landlord was called Abraham Whitlaw

The back wall is the old Bristol city wall which used to mark the boundary of the medieval city of Bristol, of which there is a section still visible in the pub.

The steps down to the gents are from the old city gaol which has now been demolished

Around 50 years ago the pub was known locally as “cheese pub” as the landlord had a large display of different cheeses behind the bar.

The pub has been licensed since 1806

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year from all at
