The White Lion in Beeston is quite an old pub. We have not visited this pub for quite a few years. The pub has seen many landlords over the years. We were here recently for the local folk club night which is held at the pubs upstairs room.
We arrived around 8.00pm. We went straight upstairs to the folk club. A decent folk club here. We went downstairs to the bar to get a pint. There seemed a good choice of beers on offer. But shock horror only one beer was on! This was a pint of Bombadier I believe and it did not taste quite right. I asked the foreign gentlemen behind the bar how much it was for the pint so I could get my change ready. He initially said that it would be £3 but then changed his mind and charged me £3.60. Shocking!!!
It was a Friday night and the bar area itself was pretty much dead. I have heard good things about the pubs new owners but from what I saw the place felt soulless and the landlord appeared very miserable. Perhaps he wasn't having a good day?
After an enjoyable night at the folk club I decided to inspect the sh*thouse before I left.
The gents toilet here are located not far from the bar. Quite a surprise here! The toilets are actually quite a good standard.
We have one cubicle in here. Nice spacious cubicle inside. I actually needed a sh*t on my visit. Nice white toilet bowl, white toilet seat, white toilet brush and a silver bog roll dispenser. There was just enough bog roll left to wipe my arse. Only gripe was that there was no hook to hang my coat on in the cubicle.
We have three urinals which line the main wall. A single sink area is provided. A big bottle of soap is perched on top of the sink to wash your hands with. The soap smelt really nice and was a bubble gum colour (see photo). There was paper towels available to dry my hands on.
We had a enjoyable night here at the folk club. After not drinking in this pub for well over ten years I do not think I will return unless I go back to the folk club. The pub felt depressed and the owner seemed like he did not want to know!
The sh*tters were pretty good though.
