Restaurant description

A welcoming village pub with traditional style and modern gastropub flavours, The Old Lion is an inviting spot for leisurely meals. Dogs are welcome in the bar area, and there are crackling log fires to relax by with a glass of wine or cask ale.

The Old Lion menu is a modern example of British gastropub excellence, with classic dishes sitting alongside contemporary flavours. Artisan breaded brie with a red berry jelly is a great sharer to start off with, moving on to pub favourites like cod and chips or homemade pie of the day. There are rustic pizzas cooked in the stone oven, and succulent steaks and burgers from the grill menu too.

Enjoy generous Sunday roasts at The Old Lion in Rugby, featuring a choice of slow-cooked meats with all the trimmings. Local cask ales and ciders are served at the bar, as well as a concise wine list and extensive choice of international spirits.

A homely pub with modern updates and a gourmet menu, The Old Lion is a 9-minute drive from Rugby Rail Station.
