Pub looks a bit grim from the outside but is clean and tidy once inside , the interior looks like it was knocked about in the 80s leaving one large L shaped room , the bar is straight ahead as you enter , to the right is the dining area which leads to the function room , on the left of the entrance is a piano above which is a rack well stocked with papers/magazines .
The left of the pub is more lounge like with a few different seating areas and a full bookcase for use not decoration , the walls are decorated with a variety of paintings by local artists and are all for sale , the patio doors lead to the raised outside patio area with lovely views of the car park and local martial arts club .
Two banks of 3 handpulls with four on during my visit , Caladonian Deuchars , Flying Scotsman , Golden IPA and Theakstons Old Peculier , service was friendly as were the locals on my midweek afternoon visit .
Its not really my sort of pub but it seems to be doing its job as a community pub (its got an ACV)and was pretty busy with a good variety of ages eating and drinking.
And for the previous Xenophobic reviewer the annoying foreign music was Fado from Portugal .

Update:

The White Lion has had a major refurbishment,i was'nt going to do this pub,but when i looked at the gawdy outside signage i had to go in and see if it was as bad inside,it was.
Once inside the pubs layout is pretty similar to my last visit,there is a large L shaped room with the bar facing,the seating is mainly bench type and small stools,the floor is carpeted.
There are now three pumps on the bar,i had a drink of Caledonian Golden XP which was ok,the other beers were Caledonian Flying Scotsman and Deuchars IPA.
The pub was almost empty on my mid Tuesday afternoon visit,there was some very annoying foreign type music playing during the short time i was in this pub.
This is a very dissapointing pub,my rating goes from a 6 to a 5.

The White lion used to be an Home Ales tied house.
This pub is on the corner of a busy road junction and is now very close to the new tesco supermarket.This is quite a large pub and it has been knocked into one large room that has got different drinking areas there was only one real ale on here which was Greene king IPA this was too warm.
This is quite a smart pub but lacks customers and is up for let at the moment i hope things improve here in the future.

The White Lion has just undergone a huge face lift. The outside has been repainted and the inside looks freshly painted too. To entice customers (probably in anticipation of the tram coming to Beeston) the pub has been renamed "The White Lion Bar and Kitchen" Unfortunately there is a very limited supply of ale on the bar. on calling in, all that was to be seen were three hand pulls all proclaiming Duchers IPA? We walked out again and went round the corner to the Crown. Must be ten years since I last went in the White Lion and it will probably be ten more before I try it again.
