White Lion Inn Llanelian, Traditional Pub Fair

Simon and Nina Cole welcome you to The White Lion Inn, Llanelian yn Rhos, just outside Colwyn Bay, in Conwy, North Wales; a beautiful and famous historic Olde Worlde Country Pub and Restaurant with log fires, good traditional food, fine wines, and cask conditioned real ales, all served up with a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

The White Lion is possibly the oldest country inn in North Wales with parts of the building reputed to date back over 1200 years; part of the existing pub served as a shippon and a granary, very apt you might think.  The current building still retains its original Welsh slate floor and oak beamed ceiling: a 19th century church pew is utilised as one of the seats for customers.  We have not though forgotten the 21st century; we offer a free WiFi service to help people keep in touch with today’s electronic age.

The pub has featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for 20 years and this year we have received an award; we are also one of only five “Approved” entries in the Good Pub Guide within a twenty mile radius.  In addition to our excellent range of beers, we have developed, with our local supplier, an extensive Wine List to offer customers the perfect accompaniment to their meal.

We offer a wide selection of food from sandwiches to beautiful home cooked meals, all offered with our personal service to make your visit memorable and hopefully one of many. See our Restaurant and Lite Bites Food Menus
