Whilst it is not apparent from the outside, the Lion has yet to re-open following lockdown. Speaking to the owner, they are hoping to re-open in the not too distant future.

Real Ale Ray left this review about The Lion

A two roomed micro with a very small front room with bar and a slightly larger back room. The front bar was busy on our Friday Eve visit, so it felt a bit cramped. It was also very unusual to see a large harp shaped Guinness font stuck on the front of the bar, dispensing what did look like a good pint of the black stuff. Three ales were served from the cask, at the back of the bar, which was Wye Valley HPA, Ludlow Blonde and Bullen Best Bitter. We went for the Ludlow, which was ok, but served too cold for me. The interior had a hessian cloth clad wall on the right hand side, which also featured along the front of the bar. The lighting was pendant ceiling lamps which were made from rope, dangling down with clear filament bulbs. The bar had an polished oak counter and two fonts serving Appleshed cider and Wye Valley 1985 lager.

Really enjoyed our visit to this micro-pub which is in the 2018 Good Beer Guide. There was a corner bar with 2 real ales being served direct from the cask and we enjoyed both the Ledbury Dr Rudi's Extra Pale and the Ludlow Stairway. Unobtrusive background music was playng. There are two rooms, a few tables and chairs in the front one with seating round the bar, and the rear room has a sofa.
