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.

    Very busy. We waited for over an hour from our booking time to get our main meal. Luckily we had ordered olives and bread to keep us going. No gluten free bread and youngest member asked for id to get a g and t with our starter. Have been before and service was much better. Food was ok - have had better here.

    Arrived 5mins early then guided to our table and waited for half an hour before drinks and starters/mains were ordered. After having had our starters waited another half hour or more before mains were served. Gravy was poured already over our meals when it shud have been in a jug according to menu. Asked waiter for bill .....never came so had to pay at the till. No tip given and wouldn't go back again although it was a lovely x cosy pub. Might come just for drinks as service be quicker.

    The White Lion is the best local eatery when we visit Aunt Sylvia, who lives in Allesley village. It's always clean and cosy, with a good menu. We almost always book ahead online. This time we had very comfortable seats at a good table, and the service was excellent to begin with, but then got slow as the place got busier. However we didn't mind waiting. We had to be moved to another table though, to finish our meal.

    Nice food but expensive for the type and quality of the food. We were over charged for a bottle of wine and disappointed at being charged £8 for a large glass of red in a normal pub environment. Basically they are charging Gastro pub prices but serving basic large pub chain food.

    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 :(
