I've been meaning to get to this Norwich pub for some time. But I finally got around to visiting it for the first time yesterday. It's almost always the local CAMRA branch cider pub of the year. So, I was certainly looking forward to it.

It did not disappoint, with a decent range of ales in addition to a fantastic cider range. I'm fairly sure that The White Lion is no longer a Milton pub. It was under new ownership and there was no sign of any of their beers. Instead, the range was Ilkley Mary Jane, Shortts The Cure & 2 Tone, Mr Winter's Atom SMASH, Tiny Rebel Five Dollar Shake & Bull of the Woods Woodstock. Ciders were Ascension Wrath, Seacider Sticky Toffee Pudding, Pulp Mango & Lime, Broadoak Purple Haze, Gwynt y Ddraig Farmhouse Pyder & Black Dragon, Abrahall's Cracklin' Rosie, Village Green Dry, Sweet & Oak Staged, Biddenden Dry & Thistly Cross Whisky Cask.

I would say that this certainly rivals the Fat Cat and possibly the Duke of Wellington as best pub in the city. I'll certainly be back.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The White Lion

This well run pub is defo worth a visit. Friendly and chatty staff and serves fab ales and ciders. There were eight ales on offer on our visit. Five from the Milton Brewery Cambs and three from local micros. I went for Milton Sparta, Dionysus and Nike, also went for the White Horse Brewery Village Idiot. All the beers were superb, you can get very comfortable in this pub.

I enjoyed my visit to this pub with friendly staff and good beers. They have a range of Milton beers plus guests, and a good reputatation for their ciders. It is just within the inner ring road but can be reached by bus no 28. It has made it into the 2013 Good Beer Guide.
