The Lion at Basford

Situated right next door to Black Iris Brewery, The Lion is a haven for cask ale, craft beer, live music and great food...

Playing host to four live music events per week and with an extensive food menu filled with burgers and other lighter bites, including plenty of vegan and gluten-free items, The Lion has become a staple in the local pub scene. They recently opened a new beer garden and patio, so it can accommodate even more people in the summer.

With eleven real ale pumps dominating the bartop, five craft taps, ten traditional ciders and over forty beers in the fridge, The Lion truly has something for everyone.
