The Lion. Market Street in Birkenhead is a welcome addition to the Birkenhead real ale scene. On 26th September, the Lion, known to many of you as the former Burtonwood pub the Caledonia, reopened as the Lion. New owners Sean and Michael are well experienced in looking after real ale having until recently run the Lion and the Cross Keys pubs in Liverpool city centre. The Lion is a straightforward traditional pub which has been tastefully redecorated and has a bright interior. It boasts four handpumps, one serving a permanent beer from George Wright known as the Lion Returns and the other three pumps having a regularly changing range of interesting beers. All the beers are competitively priced. The pub encourages you at lunchtimes to take in your own food bought from the local butty shops and enjoy a pint at the same time. The pub also offers its own tasty pork pies throughout the day.
