About the pub

Welcome To The Lion Tavern

Just a minute’s walk from Moorfields station on the corner with Tithebarn Street in the city of Liverpool, sits the beautifully restored Lion Tavern pub.

We are a traditional pub, proudly providing a refreshingly different and constantly changing selection of beers from local breweries and further afield. Cask ales, real ciders, spirits, and an ever growing selection of Irish Whiskey, alongside Scottish single malt Whisky and Bourbon. Not forgetting our locally-sourced pork pies.

We have gained a number of CAMRA awards, having been voted Liverpool CAMRA Pub of the Year 2020-2021, and Pub of Excellence 2022.

The pub consists of a central serving area with the bar at the front, and two cosy lounges to the rear of the bar, both with fireplaces. We also have one of the best jukeboxes in Liverpool, which is free to use.

A subtle combination of English and American hops, with an initial taste of bitterness followed by grapefruit notes in the aftertaste.

Oakham
Citra

4.2%

A light, refreshing beer, Oakham Citra is gold in colour with grapefruit, lychee and gooseberry aromas leading to a dry, bitter finish.

Leeds Brewery
Leeds Pale

3.8%

An easy drinking pale ale. Brewed using Slovenian Bobek hops, this session beer is light and hoppy with delicate floral aromas and a well balanced finish.

Peerless

A delicious amber ale. Tradition with a twist! Good up front bitterness gives way to a modern style hoppy finish from the use of Cascade and Goldings.  A final flourish from a modest dry hopping with Chinook hops.

Wily Fox
Crafty Fox

An amber‐coloured ale, brewed with Maris Otter & Crystal Malts, triple‐hopped with classic English varieties Northdown, Fuggles & East Kent Goldings to create a full bodied bitter ale with a spicy, earthy aroma.

Darkstar
Hophead

3.8%

A full bodied and full flavoured beer, hoppy and golden with a distinct floral aroma and mighty elderflower hit from the Cascade hops. A stellar session beer.

Coach House
Gunpowder Mild
