Now Fully Open for inside and outside full service
At Last! From August we are not only able to welcome you back inside the White Lion for table service but you can now also sit/stand/order at the bar. There are still some Covid restrictions which are detailed on our Covid page such as wearing masks when not sitting at your table. It will of course help us enormously if you pre-book but we hope to be able to accommodate a few walk-ins. Our outside, weather permitting will continue to operate as now.
A TASTE OF THE COUNTRYSIDE on the north wales coast
Simon and Nina Cole welcome you to The White Lion Inn, Llanelian-yn-Rhos, just outside Colwyn Bay, North Wales; a historic Olde Worlde family owned Free House Country Gastro Pub and Restaurant less than 5 minutes from the A55. Join us for good traditional food, fine wines, and real ales, all served up in a family friendly relaxed atmosphere with log fires.
Good food and drink brings people together. That’s why we're looking forward to welcoming you back when it's safe to do so. Read about what we've doing ahead of our full re-opening on 17th May.
Award Winning food
We believe in traditional home cooked food using as much local Welsh produce as possible. Our goal is to offer the best pub food in North Wales at reasonable prices. The pub was recently awarded both the Food Awards Wales and Hospitality Award Regional winner 2019.
Real Ales & Wine
The pub has featured in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide for over 27 years. We are proud to be Cask Marque registered and always carry a mix of local and national real ale.
The historic White Lion Inn stands on the crossroads of the hamlet of Llanelian yn Rhos, just above Old Colwyn, Conwy. With stunning views over the North Wales coast, the pub offers rural charm yet conveniently situated off the A55 expressway.
