Description: Welcome to the White Lion Selston. Following the refurbishment of the old pub, we have re-opened to the public, with a new stylish interior, 50 seat restaurant upstairs and a pub menu served downstairs. We serve carvery meals in the afternoon and bar meals in the evenings. There is of course a selection of cask beers and wine and spirits available. If you are looking for a place to just relax and unwind or some thing a bit more special then pay us a visit. We are open from 11.30am Thursday to Sunday ( and hope to be opening during the week soon) and look forward to seeing you. The Team at the White Lion, Selston.

What an excellent transformation of the White Lion. This pub has been refurbished to a very high standard, turning it into a real gem for the local area. Very welcoming on our arrival; staff were friendly as well as professional, great range of drinks on offer and extensive wine menu, really impressive. The food was excellent! Really blew us away and completely rose above our expectations, the menu’s are intelligently created and pricing is very good for the quality of each dish. I admire the use of locally sourced ingredients and the honest cooking methods. With such top end food like this, the pub is certainly going to be a great success. Hugely impressed and will be visiting again!

Great refit and decor. Most of all STUNNINGLY FLAVOURSOME FOOD. Spoilt for choice - yes! Everything made in kitchen, including the sourdough bread. Yummy! REAL FOOD. Keep it up guys. Head chef - Daniel is inspired in his flavour choices, good ingredients and skilled execution of dishes. We'll be back. Hannah the waitress was attentive and interested - lovely person. Cyril behind the bar was welcoming, engaged and informative. What a great team. NEGATIVE: was the owners are thinking of putting in Sky Sports!!! NO - you wouldn't want to do that ... if you do it'll KILL the slot in the marketplace you're beginning to establish and ruin customers expectations. Then unfortunately we'll not then visit! Sports screens in pubs around are '2-a-penny' and you will become just like the others ... samey and lost! Feel sorry for all guys that work there if this happens because it will denegrate their roles. Then before too long it'll be chips and deep fried everything - Ugh!! We ask the owners to have patience and see the project through at least past summer without making major changes that will change customer base. It's early days ... formula is good and people are spreading the word about the great food ... see it through! Thanks to the committed staff - you're tops!

Having visited the white lion a few times since it re-opened I think it is well worth a visit. The food is freshly prepared and I will definitely be going back to try other meals on the menu. The decor is very nice as it has recently been refurbished and the prices for food are very reasonable. Try and leave room for desert as they make their own ice creams which are very good and so are the deserts especially sticky toffee pudding!!! Sunday lunch is also very good
