A Warm welcome to
The white lion Inn


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.

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.

White Lion Inn Sunday Roast Dinner

Celebrate with us

Join us in December for some festive cheer. While regrettably we are not open on Christmas Day, we are running a lunchtime and evening Festive Menu. We also have a New Year's Eve menu running which we hope will be an evening of celebration as we say goodbye to 2020. Covid restrictions apply.

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.

Historic pub

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.
