The White Lion has reopened following a significant £220k investment by independent pub operators Punch Pubs & Co, with Management Partner Heidi Gorman taking the helm.

The Dunstable pub has undergone a complete internal and external refresh, including new external signage that gives this rustic pub a new lease of life. Inside, the White Lion’s traditional charm and features have been maintained, with guests still able to enjoy an array of pub classics on the revamped menu, including an outstanding Sunday Roast. Punch has also ensured the impending summer sunshine is well catered for, with particular attention being given to enhancing the pub’s spacious garden. Families and friends can now extend their visit in the comforts of a landscaped garden with additional bench seating and festoon lighting.

Experienced Management Partner Heidi is keen to put this local pub back on the map and has a host of events planned in the coming months, beginning with the showing of the Women’s Euros. Guests can take full advantage of the newly installed TVs that will be showing all major sporting events throughout the calendar. On relaunching the White Lion, Heidi said, “This is an incredibly exciting time for the whole team.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming guests back into the White Lion. The community is long overdue a great ‘proper’ pub, and this is it.”

Senior Operations Manager Sarah Edmunds says, “We’re incredibly proud to have been able to significantly invest in this pub. The pub looks fantastic and is now a place for visitors to enjoy. I have no doubt that the White Lion will quickly become the hub of the community. Our new Management Partner Heidi has extensive local knowledge and experience, and we look forward to working alongside her to ensure this great pub’s success for many years to come.”
