We are currently undergoing a refurbishment at The White Lion and will be closed from 27 October. We re-open on 12 November so please come in and see us after this time and let us know what you think of our new look.
Welcome to The White Lion
You will find The White Lion in Covent Garden London within a short stroll of Covent Garden Tube, Long Acre and Floral Street - however you won't find another like it.
Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.
A fascinating past
The White Lion is at the heart of the Covent Garden district. While its origins and history date to Victorian times, our pub has mirrored the wider changes of the area. Our regulars were once exclusively locals and market traders. Now we welcome local office types, tourists and party-goers, and we're also a favourite with musicians from the nearby Royal Opera House.
One of a kind
The White Lion is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
Famous for serving Covent Garden market traders since Victorian times
