The White Lion is a Free House and traditional country pub in the village of North Kilworth, in the region of Market Harborough, Leicestershire, serving a good selection of real ales, wines, spirits and popular drinks, great country food and lots of friendly atmosphere!

"Sometimes we wonder what happened to the traditional country pubs of England - the ones where you got a warm welcome and everyone's friendly".

Well, we are pleased to have found a gem in The White Lion at North Kilworth, a free house now under the management of Cliff Wynn who has successfully restored the country pub character and high values to the delight of the local villagers.

A good local pub is often the heart of any village and a great place to eat, drink and socialise with friends and family and that's exactly what you'll find at The White Lion.


And it's great when visitors from outside the village, from Market Harborough or further afield leave a positive review, like these recently left on Tripadvisor:

"Excellent welcome, cheerful staff, good choice of Ales, and very good value food.
The family called in for lunch following a visit to the Canal Museum at Foxton. Although a busy Saturday lunchtime, we were accommodated very quickly and efficiently. Excellent quality meals - reasonably priced. Also good choice of Ales, including Woodforde's Wherry." Geoff P (Nov'18).


"Great place to eat. Just a short walk up from the canal side, we stopped by on our holiday for an evening meal. Very stylish pub with friendly accommodating staff. Good choice of wines, and food, including a specials board. Plenty of options and the meals were well cooked". Tracey N (Oct'18).

But it's not just the quality of food and drink that makes this a good pub, it's also the atmosphere generated by good management, a landlord that cares what the locals want and then provides it.

Occasional live music and quiz nights provide entertainment and the special steak and curry nights are always popular. A Skittles team and Darts team fly the flag for the pub in local leagues and occupy a function and games room at the back on designated days of the month.

The White Lion is now a country pub serving real ales and lager with regular guest beers and local beers. The food is described as 'simple non fancy and plentiful' with great home cooking from a varied lunch and evening menu. And judging by the many reviews, they offer great value for money.
