The White Lion Selston


About The White Lion Selston

The White Lion, in Selston, has reopened its doors, under new ownership, following a full transformation and refurbishment from the rather worn premesis which closed in 2013. The new look includes a 40 cover restaurant upstairs and has a open plan bar area with two small dining areas downstairs. The bar, which is open every day from 12pm until 11pm, serves fine wines and quality spirits alongside cask ales, ciders and lagers. Local chef, Daniel Parker, and his kitchen team produce freshly cooked food every day for your enjoyment. All produce is locally sourced wherever available and we make everything on site.

The young and enthusiastic team are all fully trained to look after you, and are lead by a management team with over 20 years experience in the hospitality trade. Food is served for lunch at 12pm until 2:30pm and then evening dinner from 5:30pm until 9pm. You can enjoy our quality food in the relaxed surroundings of the bar area or you can dine in our restaurant upstairs. The fabulous Sunday lunch is served between 12pm and 4pm and is fast growing a reputation for a good way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

The White Lion has been beautifully refurbished to a high standard, incorporating fully cushioned fixed seating and boast leatherback chairs in our small function room. The bar is oak-paneled, and feature walls finished in amazing slate. The refurbishment was completed prior to Christmas after a local family decided to purchase the pub. The doors reopened on 18th December for the festive period and the White Lion team are now looking forward to fruitful year, offering fantastic quality ales and fine food to the local community. Children are welcome to eat and can choose half portions from our menus. The menu offers a variety of food from a freshly baked Ciabatta sandwiches filled with various fillings, including the famous White Lion Steakwich!

Also offered is the popular home-made burger with winter slaw and fabulous triple cooked chips. The upstairs restaurant currently offers a different Á la Carte dining experience, which incorporates fantastic modern British food using our chefs talents and some innovative methods of both cooking and presentation. Selections from the menu include roasted guinea fowl, scallops with samphire and beef cooked three ways. The mouthwatering desserts include a delicious sticky toffee pudding, a fabulous traditional plum tarte tatin, and the beautiful white chocolate parfait with mango samosa.


The first month at the White Lion has been a great success, and the team welcome further comments from our customers always. The Chef wil be updating the menus on a regular basis, to tie in with seasonal ingredients but keep the more popular fayre for our more regular customers. New ales will be introduced to keep the bar up to date and interesting and everyone is looking forward to the better weather when the garden at the rear of the building will re open and all can enjoy the sunshine.
