The White Lion was on the corner of Alvin Street and Sherborne Street. The address is given as 38 Alvin Street in the 1919 Kellys Directory and 38-40 Alvin Street in a 1957 reference.

G Cummings provided materials for Home Brewed Beer.

The White Lion was referred to the compensation authority on 3rd February 1919 but obviously survived the recommendation for closure. The White Lion was eventually demolished when the Alvin Street and ‘Clapham’ district of Gloucester was redeveloped.

Owner in 1957: Stroud Brewery Company
