About

The White Lion has been at the heart of the Ash community for over 250 years, welcoming locals and visitors to enjoy excellent fare and a good natter. Over the years the pub has provided freshly cooked, locally sourced food and an excellent range of drinks.

In 2017, with the retirement of long-standing owners, the local community took the opportunity to raise money to purchase The White Lion and do some refurbishment, including the creation of a wild-flower beer garden. Over 170 people bought shares, raising over £220,000 to make The White Lion North Shropshire’s first community-owned pub. This was further supported by grant and loan support from The Plunkett Foundation through their ‘More than a Pub’ programme. This has enabled the Lion to keep roaring, and we go from strength to strength.
