Nestled away in the south west tip of Cheshire, a stone’s throw from the borders with Shropshire and Wales – Malpas is a beautifully peaceful and historic village. The Lion has been a central part of Malpas village life for over three centuries.

In 2018 work begun to modernise the existing pub and add 16 stunning new bedrooms as well as a beautiful, self-containing event space, the Brereton Suite. The Lion was officially re-opened in September 2020 to begin the next chapter of its long and illustrious history.

Inside you’ll find oak beams, stunning candelabra and authentically comfortable furniture. Warmed by log fires with nooks and crannies to explore, the Lion has been lovingly restored for a great British pub experience.

Operated by the team at Bear Inns, you are sure to receive a warm welcome from the proud team at the Lion. You will find a range of beautifully cooked dishes at lunchtime and in the evening. We strive to use the very best local ingredients, sourcing up to 80% of our menu from within 20 miles of the pub. Our menus change frequently but we always retain a blend of pub classics, gourmet comfort food and more eclectic dishes.

The bar boasts 4 fine cask ales (supporting local breweries such as the award-winning Weetwood Ales), craft lagers, cider and an array of bottled drinks from around the world. A short but well considered wine list (selected by leading wine expert, Jon from Define Wine) will compliment any of our seasonal dishes. An artisan gin list and a fine selection of malt whisky complete the line up to offer you an experience for all occasions.
