Built in the 1960â€™s replacing the old building erected in the 18th century, the name White Lion has been a pillar of the community for many years. Situated on Newbottle Street in the centre of Houghton le Spring. The White Lion boasts great amenities and a friendly community atmosphere and with a car park situated on the premises this makes it easily accessible for all. A quiet and pleasant place to enjoy good honest food and an excellent selection of beer, wines and spirits during the day. Whilst at night we offer outstanding entertainment, such as darts, dominos and pool competitions as well as discos and karaoke. The Friday and Saturday disco and karaokeâ€™s are probably the best in the area. This combined with our theme nights makes The White Lion a busy, vibrant and energetic town centre pub. For all special occasions coming up why not join us, with a fantastic, large function room upstairsâ€™, which holds around 150 people, perfect for that wedding, birthday, etc coming up. So whether itâ€™s a quiet drink with friends or a busy night of a weekend youâ€™re sure to find it at The White Lion.
