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.
