Ain't Nothin' But A Hound Dog

The 3rd version of the Rock 'n Roll Burger Co. menu launched on Monday 2nd March 2015. It's only been one year since the Rock 'n Roll Burger Co. concept was first launched but it's evolved so much since then. In the third incarnation we say hello to a brand new selection of hot dogs, Hound Dogs to be precise.
 
All of the eight Hound Dogs have been carefully put together to reflect the Spring and Summer weather, a different selection will be launched after the summer to reflect the colder and cosier seasons. This choice of eight hit dogs includes 12 inch Cumberland sausages, Vegetarian Quorn® sausages and Vegan Linda McCartney® sausages. the idea being thast everyone will find one they like!

Nottingham's Longest-Running Open Mic

You may know Steve and Steve better as The Boot Hill Toe-Tappers, but did you know they've hosted the open mic night here at The Lion for over ten years? Nottingham's longest-running open mic night has been running for nearly fifteen years and it goes from strenght to strength! Now supported by one of our favourite local breweries, Blue Monkey, it has been given a whole new lease of life which could take it anywhere!
 
Blue Monkey beer such as BG Sips, Ape Ale, Infinity (John's fave) and Guerilla go down so well we've decided to give fans of the open mic night a reward. All Blue Mokey Ales will now have a 25p discount and that's on top of the 15p per pint discount we already give to Nottingham CAMRA members. To find out more about Blue Monkey you can visit www.bluemonkeybrewery.com
