Welcome to the White Lion, Tenterden

Ness and her wonderful team look forward to welcoming you.

Our beautiful, much-loved pub has been feeding & watering our locals and housing weary travellers for almost 500 years. We are proudly Grade II listed, with an abundance of oak beams, cosy open fires and olde-worlde charm by the absolute barrel load. 

Classic pub dishes, some spot-on-for-sharing style nibbles dishes, seriously good Sunday roasts, and hand-stretched pizzas keep bellies full and smiles wide. Our bar is well-stocked with great beers & ales, and is often bustling with friendly locals – especially when we run our community events (Music Bingo is a firm fave)

Upstairs, a warren of higgledy-piggledy walkways and 14 comfortable bedrooms await – making us the perfect place for weekend breaks, or leisurely holidays. Christmas celebrations (with easy-breezy overnight stay overs) work perfectly in our pub.

Well known as the ‘Jewel of the Weald’ our lovely town of Tenterden is well worth a visit. Our quaint high street, green & glorious countryside location, beautiful historic architecture and warm hospitality make us a mighty-fine place to be.

Party in Tenterden

Our bookable event space The Saddlery is the ideal spot for a relaxed get together. With plenty of room for mingling, its own private bar, and a dedicated team member to fetch your favourite tipples – you’ll be free to enjoy the party.

Christmas Time

Whether you’re planning the big office knees-up, looking for a family festive feast, or going the whole nine yards with a all-the-trimmings-included Christmas Day lunch – our lovely pub is the perfect place to celebrate.
