About The Lion

London is home to plenty of top notch pubs: indeed, it is one of the great watering holes of the world, and many tourists report that the pubs were their favourite aspect of the city. But old school Cockney dives don’t cut it anymore – people’s expectations are higher and the beer-and-pork scratchings combo no longer suffices. Any new pub must offer something special to make a mark. Lucky, then, that The Lion on Houndsditch 31 in Whitechapel have a menu like they do. They boast small plates of wings, sausages, squid and onion rings, sharing platters of nachos, mezze and charcuterie and cheese as well as hand-stretched pizzas, sandwiches, burgers, steak frites, fish and chips, truffle mac and cheese and more. Add a fully-stocked bar, an extensive wine list, a cocktail selection and all the trappings of a proper British pub and you’re well set for a night out in London at The Lion.

Remember, The Lion is available for private hire.

Great service and easy to book. Been here a few times now the latest for a staff party of about 20 people who were well looked after even though it was a busy Thursday night

Good food, a good selection of real ales and nice decor. Small pub, feels less like a London establishment and more like something rural. Most excellent.

Food was good as well as the service , Slight problem was that they didn't seem to know of the booking but not an issues as being a Monday there was plenty of space. Overall an enjoyable experience and will definitely go again

Really buzzy pub in heart of the City - felt more like a club. Good food and choice; very efficient staff who were friendly and constantly clearing the bar and tables.

Great service, revamp looks nice, menu is good but they have removed the Yorkshire Pudding, Sausages and Mash. If they bring that back, they would get a 6.

Very good food, service 'ok' could have been a bit quicker. Had to move from our reserved table as not suitable as had a central pillar preventing conversation with guests. However overall experience good.
