Morgan Owners Club Lunch at White Lion, Llanelian

Morgans in Car ParkWe had a selection of the iconic British Morgan Sport Cars on the car park the other week as the local owners club came for lunch.

This British built car has achieved fame throughout the world due to their unique blend of charisma, craftsmanship and performance and has now been in existence for over 100 years, not quite as long as the White Lion.

New Wine List May 2018

White Lion, Llanelian New 2018 WinelistWe will be introducing our New 2018 Winelist on Wednesday 2nd May which will again be supplied by Majestic wines.  As there have been quite a lot of inflationary pressures due to poor harvests and currency movements we have changed a few wines after exhaustive tastings in order to keep our wine prices at a level that we believe suits our customers.
We have additionally introduced three new quality Red wines, an excellent Pinot Noir from Burgundy and also two new wines from Languedoc-Roussillon, Baron de Baussac Carignan and a Merlot from Pavillon des Trois Arches.  This area of France has been transformed over the last twenty years and now produces some superb wines.
We also have a range of House Wines to compliment this list.
