As we were visiting Stourhead it seemed a good idea to book lunch at the White Lion. We were greeted by the friendly staff and shown into the restaurant. It was good to be able to share a fish platter between us whch was very tasty. The portions are on the large size. My husband ordered the special which was...

We visited for 3 nights whilst visiting family. The room was spotless and a good size for us as we were literally just sleeping there. No where to hang clothes, but we like to live from a suitcase anyway so suited us. Loads of character in the whole place. Breakfast was really good, a little bit different with ciabatta toast....

A friend recommended this. We had some rare time off today so thought we should try lunch and see. We only live over the border in Somerset, but it was a nice drive out on an autumnal day. As soon as we pulled up outside I knew it would be a good pub. Beautiful exterior with pretty tables and chairs...

We were on a tour with friends and needed to stay close to Stourhead Gardens (where there was no room at the Spread Eagle - their loss, our gain). We were made welcome with us taking two of the three rooms available. Quaint with uneven floors, low doors and a comfy bed. Getting up in the night for a call...

We booked for 6 for lunch. It was very good indeed. Easy parking, table ready , charming staff and excellent roasts. It made a family occasion with children very enjoyable. I had the roast pork which was very good indeed, others the beef. Plenty of Yorkshire puddings all round. Wrapped the leftovers up for the dog! We will be back

Always busy and popular with a variety of locals, this is a great place for a drink or meal. Informal and friendly, it has a nice feel to it and a large garden to enjoy in the warmer months. Sometimes has live music.

We thought we'd have a small lunch before a wedding. When our order came it was a huge spread! The menu did not do justice to the food on the plate, which is unusual. Usually it's the other way round. So this pretty pub with charming service and good foodis highly recommended.
