At the heart of London’s Covent Garden district and close to the world-famous Royal Opera House, the White Lion serves well-loved British pub classics in a friendly atmosphere. A retreat from the bustle of the city, the pub dates back to Victorian times and is a favourite among musicians from the opera house.

With Nicholson’s pubs first established in 1873, the fleet has become synonymous with warm hospitality, heart pub food and a speciality stock of ales. Constantly featuring recipes are bolstered by a seasonally-changing range of specials on the Nicholson’s menu, with favourites including home-breaded chicken Kiev, or a sharing cottage pie. Also enjoy old-school desserts and nourishing breakfasts.

At the Nicholson’s bar, expect to find 25 guest ales changing with the seasons, a resident cask master, and carefully-matched ale and food pairing suggestions. Compiled with equal care, the White Lion drinks list features easy drinking wines, artisan soft drinks and classic cocktail mixes.

The White Lion in Covent Garden is just a minute’s walk from Covent Garden Tube Station.
