Welcome to The White Lion at Childer Thornton

The White Lion at Childer Thornton offers everything a country pub should; comforting home-cooked food, quality ales, characterful surroundings and a warm welcome.

Described as a hidden gem in rural Cheshire, The White Lion is a friendly village inn with large open fires, wooden beamed ceilings and cosy snugs. It has been standing pride of place in the village of Childer Thornton since 1724 and welcomes both the local community as well as visitors to the area.

We are a popular food destination throughout the year; cool winter evenings can be spent in front of our log fires, and our expansive beer garden was made for summer days! Our menu is filled with home-cooked, great value pub classics such as fish and chips, roast dinner and pies. Take a look at our food page to see what takes your fancy.

Not feeling peckish? Come and join us for a drink; after all we do have a pretty good selection! As a Cask Marque pub we serve a wide range of award-winning Cask ales alongside world beers and wines, so there is plenty to choose from.

We look forward to your visit to our cosy country pub.

Ken & Sue and the team.
