Will Larter left this review about The White Lion

This was my seventh pub of a crawl of Bridgnorth, so my notes, where they exist at all, are patchy at best. Two things stand out from my notes about this pub, though: "Beer in superb condition" and "A real locals pub". This is the tap of the Hop & Stagger brewery, based a few miles outside Bridgnorth, and I had a half of their excellent Beckbury Best; there were four more of their beers on, and two guests (see photos).

The White Lion is a decent enough looking pub that is on the nice looking West Castle Street.
Once inside there is a single irregular shaped room which runs to the rear,the floor is part carpeted and tiled,the seating is bench seating and normal tables and chairs.
The pub has ties to the Hop & Stagger brewery,so we had to give one of their beers a try,i had a drink of Hop & Stagger Shropshire Pale Ale,which was a very nice drink,the other Hop & Stagger beers on were Freyja, Golden Wander and Bridgenorth Porter,the guest beers were Thornebridge Wild Swan,Wye Valley HPA and one other i failed to note.
There was a bar billiards table to the rear and cobs on the bar,Pies and a pint for £5 were also on offer.
We really liked this pub.

Note: The Hop & Stagger brewery as relocated to the North of Bridgenorth.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The White Lion

This traditional pub with its own microbrewery ticked all the boxes for me. They had seven ales on handpump, out of which four were their own, brewed out the back. I went for a pint of Hop and Stagger Golden Wander which was superb, along with a hot steak pie for a fiver.
I also got a fresh cob on the bar to eat later. Their other speciality was the home made scotch eggs.
Unfortunately, we read the bus times wrong back to Wolverhampton, so had to revisit here and found Ludlow Blonde had come on handpump, so that was a bonus.
The entertainment was also good late afternoon, when Mrs Ale had put her handbag on a coat hook on the bar, with the long handle hanging down. I got up and caught my foot in this and flew across the lounge to land near a table full of drinks and luckily enough, never spilt one. Every woman in the room loved to see a bloke making a prat of themselves and the laughter lasted for quite some time.
