The Bull and Lion (reputedly the only one in Britain) is a 17th century pub just a few miles from Ashby-De-La-Zouch and just off the M42. We are set in the beautiful national forest and the Gillewhiskaw brook runs through the village.

Every way you could walk from the Bull and Lion there are walkways.

We have a large car park and two gardens, which are lovely on a sunny day.

Inside the pub we have a bar area with BT sport and a darts board, a lounge area with a log burning fire. We also have a restaurant separate to the lounge bar if you fancy something a little more private.

We have a small cupboard with coloring books, wooden blocks and card games for the children.

Well behaved and clean dogs are move then welcome.
