The Ickleton Lion
This newly refurbished family-run pub is situated in the beautiful village of Ickleton, just five miles from Saffron Walden. With a lovely new look, the pub thrives at the forefront of village life, as it has done for over 300 years. As well as serving great-quality home-cooked food, Tom, Michelle and the family extend a warm welcome to all guests and strive to uphold the Great British pub tradition.
The menu showcases a great selection of pub classics, cooked with care by the talented kitchen team. A tasty range of crispy stone-baked pizzas are freshly baked and prepared using authentic, high-quality ingredients; regular pizza nights allow customers to take advantage of the variety on offer and allow the kitchen team to trial new seasonal specials. The lunch menu boasts a traditional ploughman’s as well as fantastic sandwiches, jacket potatoes and tasty light bites.
For dessert, check out the daily blackboard, or why not sample award-winning local ice cream, handmade by The Saffron Ice Cream Company on a family-owned farm in historic Saffron Walden? At the bar, choose from a great range of ale, wine, and spirits to accompany your meal. Whether you’re popping in for breakfast and a coffee, a light lunch, or a hearty evening meal, a warm and friendly welcome awaits you at The Ickleton Lion.
