Aqualung . left this review about The White Lion

This town centre pub consists of a single open plan rectangular room where the carpet has certainly seen better days.
There is a dart cabinet but it was obstructed and seemed to be rarely used. A jukebox was playing some early David Bowie tracks.
The bar has just two hand pumps which had the disappointing choice of Directors or Young's Special. I went for the Young's Special (£3.55) which was in good nick.
This one seems to be mainly aimed at locals rather than tourists but is let down by the poor choice of cask ales.

Busy pub on Greenmarket, at the bottom of Causeway. Courage Best and Youngs Special served and both were excellent. One big room with music playing and there was a dartboard. A bookcase of available books too. Good atmosphere.
