Welcome to Ye Olde Whyte Lyon

A characterful Kentish pub, proudly serving the locals of Locksbottom for over 400 years.

Our menus

Built in 1626, Ye Olde Whyte Lyon is an historic community pub that has truly stood the test of time thanks to a winning combination of beautiful beer, great pub food and friendly service.

Located in the centre of Locksbottom, near Orpington, it’s got everything you could wish for in a classic Kentish pub. Old oak beams and a roaring log fire give the interior a warm and welcoming feel, while outside, a charming walled garden invites you to enjoy a summer of alfresco drinks in the sun.

There’s entertainment aplenty too, with Ye Olde Whyte Lyon hosting live music on a regular basis, darts evenings and lots of live sport on TV with several large screens (including one in the garden), there can be few finer pubs in Orpington for football fans.

Whether you’re here for the big game, the beer, a beautiful burger or all of the above, a warm welcome awaits.
