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.

    have had a drink here but have not had a meal for quite a few years after a very bad meal . Went for mothers day as could get in last minute . Was a bit sceptical about what our experience would be after the last time . Food was ok and enjoyed it . The only thing that spoilt it was that one of the starters arrived after we had finished ours . The girl had forgotten to place the 3rd order with the kitchen . May consider trying White Lion again

    Bad seating, by a draughty vent, spotlight shining in face. Gristly steak.

    Appalling service. This took customer service to a new low.
    Starters were fine, then a 45 minute gap when we were completely ignored apart from fresh cutlery brought to the table. When asked to stop taking fresh orders until we had been served our main courses, I was told not to be rude he would sort it in a moment.

    There was then raised voices in the kitchen and within seconds our meals arrived !

    Sea bass dried up, potatoes warm, carrots cold.
    Short rib of beef burnt on edge, carrots burnt on tips - rest cold. Mashed potatoes had a skin where they had been under the lamp, Luke warm underneath.

    Requested FRESH meals and again told not to be rude.

    At this point we put on our coats and left, never to return.

    Worst experience eating out ever

    Disappointed. Both had Sunday lunch. My beef was as tough as old boots and parnios inedible as they weren't cooked. Really disappointed and for the money it wasn't a cheap disaster.
