It's another of those pubs perenially under threat from redevelopment or modernisation. Always found it good for getting served and quality of ale. Those Formby brews seem to be growing and multiplying. Still have a hawkshead ale on but have gone off them.

I hadn't been to the Lion for a few months. So I thought I'd pay it a visit whilst in Liverpool on Saturday. The bar was much busier than I'd seen it of late and despite being the only person waiting, I struggled to get the attention of the barmaid. This seems to be an age-old problem in here and I've heard others mentioning it. On the positive side, the ale range is back up to normal. Red Star Lion Pale Ale Formby Blonde were supplemented by Rock The Boat Bootle Bull & Mussel Wreck, Dartmoor Best, Oakham Citra, Rat White Rat & Big Bog Bog Standard Bitter. Unfortunately there was no real cider. 2 boxes of Rosie's Pig hidden beneath the bar were both empty. I always want this pub to match the promise of its interior. But it never quite delivers.

Currently closed and clad in scaffolding whilst undergoing a £300k refurbishment which has been needed for years. Due to reopen in March. Best wishes to all concerned.

Quite an interesting interior to this place when I came in. The bar area looked a bit like something from the bar scene from the film 'Legend'. There's a reasonable bit of seating around the bar and some extra seating away the bar. There is a refurbishment starting in February (and potentially some cheap beer down there this weekend). On the bar they had Adnams Ghostship, Broadside, Everands Tiger, Robinsons Dizzy Blonde, Rudgate Ruby Mild, Youngster bitter, Moorhouse Pride of Pendle, Castle Rock Harvest Pale, they also had Yankee Rooster on keg. I went for Rudgate Ruby Mild at 3.25 and it was a decent beer. It was absolutely dead in here except for one other customer and a reasonably friendly barmaid, I probably came in at a bad time but I would say this place is worth a visit to have a look around.

I just had time for a quick one here before catching a train from the nearby Moorfields station. The Lion is back open again. I didn't recognise the people behind the bar. So I'm not sure if they're new owners or not. The ale selection didn't seem quite as good - Conwy Welsh Pride, JW Lees MPA, Robinsons Wizard, Adnams Broadside, Moorhouses Pride of Pendle & Youngs Bitter. The cider was Rosie's Pig. But if they're trying to build trade back up again, the more limited range than normal is understandable. This is still a good pub even by Liverpool pubs' standards and of course it's always worth coming to see the fantastic interior alone. For the first time ever, I managed to get a seat in the bar.
