The Bull & Lion in Packington is a pub dedicated to the traditional ways of yesteryear. It’s run by ex-army chef Phil Tookey in conjunction with his partner Emma Talbot, and between them they’ve created a venue with a comfortable atmosphere that makes everyone feel right at home.
Phil and Emma really go the extra mile to offer their patrons something interesting. This is best demonstrated by the unique beer that they have created – Rood Awakening, named after the nearby Holy Rood Church, is their own-recipe bitter, brewed for them by Marston’s. It’s a dark real ale that’s totally exclusive to the Bull & Lion and is sure to please the tastebuds. Add this to the ever-changing selection of quality cask ales and it’s no wonder the Bull & Lion is Cask Marque accredited.
The food is sourced locally and made fresh to order, including their mouthwatering homemade chips. Other options include classic British starters like breaded mushrooms, while main choices include lots of delicious homemade pies. The pub marks the perfect end to a country walk; warm yourself by the crackling open ﬁre while you tuck into the delicious three-roast Sunday lunch. You can even bring your four-legged friend in with you. Thanks to the roast’s popularity, booking is highly recommended.
To seek Bull & Lion out, you only need to take a short drive from the M42 or M1, both of which provide an easy connection to this special inn.
