Peach Pubs takes over The White Lion in Radford Semele, Leamington Spa
May 2, 2022

The White Lion in Radford Semele in Leamington is about to start a new chapter after being taken over by popular pub company Peach Pubs.

Peach, which is based in Warwickshire, runs some of my fave local pubs in the county, including the Star & Garter in Leamington, the One Elm in Stratford and the Rose & Crown in Warwick.

It has now taken over The White Lion, which is undergoing a complete refurbishment highlighting its original features and giving both inside and outside a great new look. The traditional thatched pub will have cosy snugs for drinking and dining as well as a modern garden room opening out onto a newly landscaped garden with a covered pergola, lounging sofas and dining tables.

The pub will serve a menu of seasonal dishes including quality steaks and seafood, classic gastro pub favourites, specials that change daily as well as weekend treats and Sunday roasts.

Peach Partner Sarah Robinson said: “The White Lion is a beautiful, old pub in a beautiful village, and we are lucky to call it one of ours. Since taking it on, we have got to work to give it the attention it deserves, to make it a great pub for everyone in the village to enjoy as well as guests from further away.

“The refurbishment is making good progress.  We shall re-open the doors in early Summer and can’t wait for the moment to come when we can welcome people back.  In the meantime, we are recruiting and are looking for enthusiastic people to join our team in a variety of front and back of house roles.
