Welcome to The Golden Lion, Lancaster’s smallest BIG venue.

A pub has existed on this site for hundreds of years and we are rumoured to be the last stopping place for the Pendle witches on their way to the gallows……some say our cellars are haunted by the ghosts of the Pendle witches along with other hauntings in the building too!

The Golden Lion is about more than ghosts and witches though. With live music every Thursday and Saturday, Lancaster’s longest running open mic night each Tuesday, and our Sunday folk night, The Golden Lion is the place for regular live and local music every single week.

We don’t just do music though, oh no. We also have four screens for live sporting events, including but certainly not limited to, The Premier League, The Championship, F1, Six Nations, England Cricket, PGA golf and many, many other sports. If it’s on and we have a spare screen, then just ask at the bar and we will try to get it on for you.

We have a fantastic selection of lagers and real ales for you to try, including our house ales, Theakston’s Best, Moorhouse’s Pride of Pendle and Butcombe beer. We also have one of the finest collections of single malt whiskies and we now also stock a vast array of exciting gins for you to try too.

We look forward to seeing you soon and don’t forget to take a look in our “Witches Room”……if you dare,

 Jon, Macy and the team…..oh and 🦁 me.
