The first pub I could find for a swift one before my train, others nearby were rammed whilst this place was just busy. Still Landlord and Wainwright on cask but the former was at least a good pint. The pub itself is a single nondescript room. Another Manchester pub that has had any unique character removed, no need to return here.

The White Lion is an L-shaped old school boozer with a central L-shaped bar counter that supports premium keg alongside Beavertown’s Neck Oil and two hand pumps that were drawing TT Landlord and Thwaites Wainwright. There is some seating to the left of the entrance and high tables run up the right to some raised seating at the rear. Televisions are found throughout for watching live football and there was some late 20th century music playing in the background. The barman was friendly enough, but there was a fat odious boomer in attendance with his bint. I don’t normally knock points off for a random nobhead being in the pub during my fleeting visit, but the barman was crawling up his arse so he must be a regular. Shame as the pub has had a recent refit and isn’t that bad, but I’ll not be returning.

Visited mid week. Five hand pulls at the bar, two of which were unclipped and a further one had the pump clip (Tim Taylor Landlord) turned round. The remaining selection was Doom Bar and Greene King IPA. I went for the Doom Bar and it wasn't good. Doom Bar is never my go-to drink but my mate likes a good pint of it, and this was not a good pint of it! We were even wondering if it was actually Doom Bar.

On the upside the place had a real fire (albeit not in operation) and it also does food. My mate went to the toilet (after a bit of guesswork as to which door was which) and reported back that they were covered in flies and were really rather unpleasant. I decided not to investigate for myself, and took his word for it.

The pub was quiet on Tuesday evening, and it is easy to see why. It could do a lot better.
