|A detail in one of the Lion's windows|
The Lion survived more than 6 months' closure last year and a refurbishment early this year, and has come through largely unscathed. The licensee, Dave, was hoping to have a beer festival this summer but it looks as though the location of the pub on a very busy corner in the city centre close to a major railway station may make the logistics of all the deliveries a festival demands unfeasible. Blocking a busy junction while unloading dozens of casks may not go down too well with our constabulary friends.
A good choice of eight real ales and a real cider is always available.
The Lion is on Moorfields in Liverpool, diagonally across the road from the railway station.
