Licensee Darren Crawford has welcomed back his loyal regulars to the White Lion pub in Alvanley, Cheshire, following a substantial joint investment by Robinsons Brewery and The Broad Oak Pub Company.
The pub, which was closed for 3 weeks, has been completely transformed internally with a rustic country style design featuring exposed timber beams, roaring fires and a stunning panelled bar.
“Whilst our last investment was around 6 years ago, we wanted to freshen the pub up a bit so it was really important that the refurbishment kept a real timeless Cheshire look whilst modernising throughout” explained Darren. “The new look is a contemporary throwback to a warm, homely country pub that feels welcoming as soon as you step through the doors.”
The pub is full of cosy pockets throughout with quiet areas to catch up with friends or enjoy a meal from the White Lion’s ample menu. The new menu is packed full of British classics including a selection of delicious homemade pies and mouth-watering burgers.
“Our menu is really perfect for every occasion” explained Darren. “We’ve got plenty of classics to suit everyone’s taste and some more premium pub dishes for special occasions. We’ve always prided ourselves on the quality and value of our menu at The White Lion so we are always proud when we can share new dishes with our customers.”
The bar is rightfully the heart of the pub. The new panelled bar offers a rotating range of Robinsons cask ales from 6 hand pulls alongside a selection of premium lagers, handpicked wines and an impressive selection of spirits including a gin selection that is guaranteed to impress all ‘ginthusiasts’.
Closing, Darren said: “We want to thank our customers who have been patient throughout the whole refurbishment. We are proud of the new look and to hear such positive feedback from our regulars has been wonderful. The White Lion truly is a pub for the community around us and we are happy that, with this new look, we can continue to provide the perfect destination for our customers for many years to come.”
The White Lion in Alvanley is open now serving a rotating range of cask ales, craft beers, lagers, wines and spirits alongside a home cooked fresh menu.
