The White Lion

The White Lion sits at the top of the high street and offers everything you would want to see in your local: friendly faces, personal service and a great pint. Due to its central location, reputation and local public transport links, The White Lion is a lively pub that is full of life and atmosphere. We are a real gem in Houghton-le-Spring.


We are more than a pint, we believe in bringing people together through good times and great hospitality.
