Ye Olde Whyte Lyon, Orpington

Welcome to Ye Olde Whyte Lyon, Orpington

A traditional pub serving Kentish ales and pub grub

Our menus

Built in 1626, with plenty of oak beams still on display today, Ye Olde Whyte Lyon is now the only traditional pub left in Locksbottom. We’re a real haven, offering everything you could want from a typical Kentish hostelry.

Inside, we have beautifully-decorated bar and restaurant areas, where you can enjoy great food and drink seven days a week. Our restaurant is very popular so we suggest you get in touch with us today to book a table!

Outside, we have a walled garden with plenty of tables for you to enjoy a cold drink on a warm day.

There’s plenty of entertainment at the Whyte Lyon. Sports lovers can enjoy watching Sky Sports here on four screens – two large, two small – one of which is outside on our decking. And music lovers can enjoy great live performances.

We are a child-free pub (14 years old and over only) with a very warm welcome for all so why not pop over to see us soon!
