Pub of the Week: The British Lion, Devizes

Posted 2 July 2021

Sometimes, all you really want to find is a proper good old classic town pub. And that’s exactly what The British Lion in Devizes stands for – a place for great beer and great company. As the only independent freehouse in Devizes, it’s easy to see why The British Lion has such a long standing, loyal following, including customers and staff. Situated in the very centre of the historic market town of Devizes, from the outside it has a classic aesthetic, which is matched inside. With a large wooden beamed bar, traditional jukebox, cushioned bar stools, framed awards and various artwork from different breweries. It’s clear they know their stuff when it comes to beer. The care and knowledge that they dedicate to creating the best range of ales and cider in the town is clear from the very moment you walk into the bar, and is something of a passion for the landlord and staff. No wonder it attracts such large numbers of locals and tourists alike.

Their selection of local and craft ales rotate regularly to keep the offering fresh and interesting, as well as helping to support smaller breweries. In the next couple of weeks, you’ll find our new Mango IPA on the bar, the perfect summer hazy ale to enjoy in the pub’s beer garden. It’s the largest beer garden in the town, and offers plenty of space for social distancing, a covered area too for the rainier days and when the weather behaves the back lawned garden – is a fabulous suntrap.

We’ve known the British Lion for many years, and have always loved working with them. Their passion for great beer is accompanied by that of creating a welcome and relaxed atmosphere for you and your friends to enjoy each other’s company. It’s the ideal pub for either a pit stop after work or of an evening after dinner, or you could simply spend one weekend afternoon enjoying the excellent range of drinks. Whichever you choose, you’ll be greeted with the warmest of welcomes – and great pints. For more information visit
