For beer-lovers, purists and the just plain nostalgic the White Lion serves a selection of real ales straight from cask to glass on our traditional stillage. Only a handful of pubs in East Anglia still do it this way: no gas, no pumps, just a cooling jacket to maintain optimum temperature. The original and best method to ensure a perfect pint. We are listed in the Good Beer Guide 2012.
