The 20th anniversary of the White Lion Pub was celebrated on March 25 with a dinner party at the restaurant. The event was hosted by founders and owners Betty Southard, a Liverpool native, and son John Southard. Tulsa County Commissioner Karen Keith presented a Board of Tulsa County Commissioners’ Proclamation naming March 25 as “John Southard Day.” It also was announced that the British Institute of Innkeepers, a leading membership organization in the UK to celebrate the standards and professionalism within the pub industry, had awarded the Southards and the White Lion Pub an honorary membership. The Southards have long prided their establishment as being “authentically British” with five dining rooms loaded with antiques and other items, and English-style food and drink on the menu. The White Lion, 6927 S. Canton Ave., is open evenings Tuesday-Saturday. Call 918-491-6533 for reservations.
