Blackthorn _ left this review about The White Lion

A traditional old pub in a residential part of Nailsea, it’s very much a local’s pub and is unlikely to have changed much in decades consequently feeling somewhat dated rather than having any “olde worlde” charm. It consists of a couple of bars along with a beer garden at the rear.

The larger bar was to the left and a smaller snug to the right, although we did not investigate this. The central bar counter serves both bars. Decor wise it follows the traditional and unimaginative old pub ambience with red patterned carpet on the floor, red velour on the seats, red curtains at the windows, and so on. The paintwork is a mixture of deep salmon and cream and there are a few old black beams on the ceiling. Several copper pans were hung on the walls as well as a few horse brasses and such like.

Beers on tap were Butcombe and Sharp’s Atlantic, whilst a third pump appeared to have run out. Ciders meanwhile were Ashton Press, Thatcher’s Haze and somewhat unusually on draught, Natch.

I took over the pub in March 2005, the 2004 landlord is no longer associated with the White Lion. It is now exactly as you would expect it to be... a friendly, warm and welcoming traditional local that serves 3 excellent real ales along with a great selection of lagers and ciders.

I was a regular at the white lion in nailsea, i found out that the pub had been taken over by a new landlord in 2004, i have seen and spoken to the landlord and was not intrigued by his attitude, he wasnt the politest of people, he had a bad attitude
