The Golden Lion is a sizeable detached community pub situated on the edge of the market town of Bilston, West Midlands. Bilston is was historically a mining and factory town, meaning there is a number of chimney pots, from terraced houses to detached properties. Situated of two miles South-East of Wolverhampton and close to the borders of Sandwell and Walsall meaning there is frequent public transport with busses and a Metro link and easy access to main roads.
As you enter the pub you will see two separate spacious areas, the main bar is really popular with a pool table, darts board and television screen to keep customers entertained. Currently there is no sky sports, however a new tenant may wish to introduce this as it would be very welcomed by the local community and could increase trade. The second area is again spacious, holding approximately 40 people and being served from it’s own bar, it often lends itself to a function room although this could be incorporated into an overflow from the main bar on busy nights and utilised more for community or private events. The Pub has a car park which holds up to 15 cars. The main beer garden is at the rear of the pub and is a large grassed area along with some external seating and smoking area. There is a kitchen which requires work to ensure it is compliant
The Golden Lion is a community focused drinks led pub, the bar is well stocked with spirits, ciders and lagers, at present there is no cask ale which is something that could be introduced. There are four pool teams which are an added benefit to the mid-week trade alongside a weekly quiz night, bingo and live music. The pub has an affiliation with a local pool team and regular entertainment is popular.
The Private accommodation consists of three bedrooms, a bathroom, sitting room and kitchen.
