Nina and Laz welcome you to The White Lion, an independently run family pub and restaurant in Leominster, Herefordshire.



Lily Little Legs

Leominster’s White Lion pub and Swan Brewery are joining forces to raise money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital with the launch of Lily Little Legs at the end of June, a 4.4% full bodied premium ale.

Available only in the White Lion, Leominster, for every pint of Lily Little Legs sold, a donation will be made to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

With the businesses only half a mile apart, Mervyn Mahoney and Serah Anderson of the White Lion and Jimmy Swan and Gill Bullock of Swan Brewery hit upon the idea of a bespoke brew for the White Lion to offer something not available elsewhere in the town, and one that Mervyn and Serah knew would be to the tastes of their customers.

They also realised it was an opportunity to give something back to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, where the daughters of both couples have undergone treatment and had excellent care.  Jimmy and Gill’s daughter Anna was born with an abdominal condition and had corrective surgery at 11 months.  She is now 8 years old and has only an “unusual” belly button to show for her condition.  For Mervyn and Serah the experience is closer, with their youngest child, Lily having had surgery on her ears this spring.  A recent check-up shows Lily is making good progress.

Mervyn commented, “Our Lily is such a brave girl.  Our nickname for her is Lily Little Legs, which is an apt name for a beer which will raise money for the hospital where she has had great care.  Serah and I can’t thank the staff at Birmingham Children’s Hospital enough.”

Lily Little Legs will be on the bar at the White Lion, Etnam Street Leominster from Friday 24th June.

Charity event – The White Lion’s ‘Mock Wedding’ – time to get a new hat! Sat 29th June 2013

Who doesn’t love a summer wedding… champagne reception, delicious buffet , a good old shindig and a little bit of true love thrown in to boot. You do?…. of course you do…. and you are going to love this!!

On the 29th of June 2013, The White Lion will be hosting a ‘mock wedding’ fundraiser event. This is something you’ve probably not done before. Let’s face it, it sounds a little bit crazy. But it promises to be something really different and fun, and the best part… it’s all in aid of the very worthy causes of St Michaels Hospice and Westfield School Bubble Appeal.

Whether you are a group of lads or girls, or that couple that are truly madly deeply in love, this wedding promises to be highly entertaining!!…….
The event will start with a drinks reception from 2pm. Then it’s the ceremony from 3pm followed by a hearty deluxe buffet meal in the evening. Then onto the dancefloor for live band TORN and D.J. Dizz-co who will be keeping the party going to the small hours in the true wedding spirit.

Who knows how the wedding will pan out, but one thing is guaranteed there will be plenty of food, drink, dancing and you know us, plenty of good craic!! There may also be some special guests in attendance!!!!
So you are hereby cordially invited to join us at 2pm for a champagne reception followed by a mock ceremony and buffet meal, all for £10.

Tickets are £10, with tables of ten being sold for £100 if you want to guarantee reserved seating.


Torn playing The White Lion Leominster 29th June 2013

The White Lion’s latest in the live music line up …. Torn, the hardest working rock band in the county. They’ll be here on Saturday 29th June 2013.

Torn are a four piece rock band based in the Herefordshire (ish) area! Started by Adrian Palmer and James Garibbo, Torn morphed out of other bands that they had been members of. A few line up’s and changes of drummers later the band gigged regular venues in the area with Andy Hodson on bass and Simon Richards on drums. Andy then moved on making Torn the local equivalent of Spinal Tap but for bass players. Dan Palmer, Ade’s son stepped into the breach and is currentl…See More

Although we have gone through our share of changes, our only aim is to keep
playing and making great music.

Gig starts at 8pm. Remember we’re also having our charity ‘Mock Wedding’ that day with champagne reception, mock ceremony, buffet, and DJ Dizz-Co. Promises to be a riot!
