The Sun Is Shining, The Food Is Sweet

The Sun Is Shining, The Food Is Sweet

In the summer, we like to get together with friends and family and enjoy the sun with a nice drink or two. The question is, do you just nip down the road to your local? Or do you head further afield? Here at The Lion Hotel, we are the perfect local and country pub, making us an ideal summer destination for everyone.

Location Location Location

Sometimes the location of your drinks is key. In the heart of the East Midlands, and just a stone’s throw away from Peak District National Park why not make this the meeting place?
No matter where you’ve been during your day, or even for the week, we’re right in the heart of everyone.
Situated right on the edge of Belper, we have the feel of a pub in the middle of nowhere, without the risk of being stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Grab A Drink!

We know that our guests will all have different tastes when it comes to drinks. Even amongst a group, each and everyone could be looking in completely opposite directions for a drink. So what’s your tipple?
Cocktails – In the summer sun, we know that we sell more cocktails than any other time (except maybe Christmas). So we have you covered with a selection of summery choices!
We have the pineapple crush, classic mojito and a beautiful peach and raspberry cooler!
Draught – on draught you’ll find all the classics you know and love. Aside with some real ales and cider!
Bottled – if you are more fly conscious and want something in the bottle, we have your bottle lager, ale, fruity ciders and even the lighter favourites like Smirnoff Ice and WKD.
Remember to keep an eye out for regular drink offers! You’ll see them pop up on our Facebook page too!

Pizza In The Sun

When you are sitting in the sun, surrounded by some of your favourite people, enjoying a drink, why not consider having a pizza or two to share?
Known for being one of the best pizza restaurants in Derby, our freshly prepared and hand-stretched stone-baked pizza will certainly sort the hunger.
The great thing about sharing pizza amongst your group of friends is that you can order a selection, accompany them with sides, and all tuck in. Who says you have to stick to your one pizza! Share all the wonderful toppings that we have to offer.
Take on the tastes with our Royal – topped with Nudja sausage, buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil and tomato sauce. Go for the BBQ feel with our Pulled Pork pizza topped with Tomato Sauce, cheese, pulled pork, barbeque sauce, smoked cheddar & caramelised onion. Or even go traditional with a classic Margherita!

The End Of The Day

When the day starts winding down, but you aren’t ready to go home, why not consider staying the night?
With the plushest beds in hotels in Derbyshire, our rooms are made to relax. Why not soak away the heat of the summer sun in our refreshing private bathrooms, then snuggle down into luxury. Don’t worry about forgetting toiletries, there will already be some complimentary ones in the room.
If you still aren’t ready to wind down, check out the TV complete with Sky channels, or make the most of our free WiFi.

Whether you are looking for a place to meet with friends over a drink, or a meal, or if you and the family would like a night away, get in touch today and our friendly team will be able to help get you booked in.
