Excellent Charity Day on Bank Holiday Monday

Many thanks to everyone who supported our charity day on Monday. Despite the weather loads of you turned out as we went indoors........live bands all afternoon, face painting, stalls and raffles were all popular as we raised nearly £500 for the Cancer Research Relay for Life.........

There is a superb line up of live music this weekend with Pesky Alligators playing tonight and Little Giants on Saturday.........both local bands who have been performing at the Lion for over 10 years now........mix that with some of the new talent from Nottm we are showcasing and it gives you an idea why The Lion is one of the top live music venues in the city...........don't forget live hot jazz on Sunday afternoons and open mic on Thursday.

The burgers have finally taken over........owing to overwhelming demand we are sorry to say that traditional Sunday lunches will no longer be served.........the Rock n Roll Burger menu will start from Midday on Sundays and run til 8pm........the amazing success of the burgers has surprised us all and we apologise for upsetting customers who came for the Sunday roasts, but the demands were switching around and we have had many customers walking out................

We have three IPA type beers on the bar today.....Thornbridge Jaipur , Oakham Green Devil and Oldershaws American Hopquad........all north of 5.5%...... All in world class condition!!

Congratulations to a couple of our sister pubs.....Steampacket at Swanwick has won a cider award from Amber Valley CAMRA. They organised an excellent cider trail through out the Summer and showed good support to everyone of the participating pubs.

The Blue Stoops at Chesterfield were nominated by the  Chesterfield CAMRA branch as pub of the month.......some tough competition up there but we have won the award before....good luck.

The Late Night Levy information has arrived........if only the council were as efficient with other things!!!.........The Lion has no choice but to pay it as does Bunkers Hill.........but come on!!!!........the Plough at. Radford and The Lord Nelson in Sneinton..........why should small pubs like that have to fund the city centre policing??...........a complete failure for democracy......what tax next from the City Founding Fathers!?!.........

Come and let us know what you think about the Late Night Levy.....
See you at teatime for a beer and a sarnie
