Once a family home, and later a local shop, The White Lion Allesley now runs as a watering hole and restaurant in the Coventry countryside. The anterior gravel courtyard caters for al fresco dining, while inside, exposed oak beams and a traditional hearth attest to the pub’s steep history.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The White Lion menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while the ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The White Lion in Warwickshire is home to a network of rural trails just off the beaten path, while Coundon Hall Sports Club is only a 2-minute drive away.

    Service very poor, waited 15 minutes before we saw a member of staff...tables and bar dirty, covered in glasses and bottles...40 minutes before taking our order then another 45 before food arrived which was of poor quality...would not go again.

    Not impressed with the Sunday roast. Roast potatoes burnt and mushy and everything drowned in gravy! Service was very slow.

    Before reading on i would like to say that other visits went to plan. Arrived in plenty of time, we were welcomed straight away, had explained to us that if we could order our meal soon we would get in before a large party in the main restaurant . we did this along with our drinks order. unfortunately the drinks did not come till after we had finished our starters. the mains went well. we had coffee which once again took an exceptionally long time to come to our table. my husband and I were disappointed on this visit :(

    Very disappointing. We went on a Sunday evening for our daughters birthday. Many of the dishes we chose were not available, including most of the roast options. We were told it had been a very busy day by the waitress only to overhear another waitress telling other diners it had been a quiet day. The food that was available was poor. Steak with four uncooked tomatoes. Hunters chicken without the barbecue sauce. Veggie burger with a few chips and no garnish. We will not be returning.

    I have to say we were very disappointed with our night out, waiter took our order for drinks and we waited 30 mins for them to arrive, in fact we had to tell the girl that brought our food order the drinks had not come. They were brought to us with apologies and taken off our bill. We also had to wait ages to flag someone down to order desserts as the waiter serving us seemed to find us invisible!. We asked for our bill and gave the waiter a voucher we had for %20 off total bill, he was not very happy as he said we should have told him, but when we booked our seats it came up about the offer on the e.mail so we presumed they knew. Overall we felt we were not particulary welcome, and were not that impressed with the food either. We will not be returning.
