Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a lovely meal at the White Lion this evening. The staff were very accommodating when we asked to move table and the service was quick. The food portions were generous but not too big and the chocolate brownie was particularly delicious! Highly recommended. We will certainly return.

Booked a table a few days before our visit as going at a weekend. Lovely table outside overlooking the river. Order at bar and food delivered to the table. Good selection & very reasonably priced. All staff were so friendly. We also took our dog with us who was made very welcome also. Super atmosphere & plan on returning.

Typical pub meal, very good service at a reasonable cost in a perfect location. We took coach party of 40 people, the service was very good, everyone enjoyed the food and the location. What else can I say to make up 200 characters, the weather was good, we watched the birds on the river while we ate.

Decided to have a quick bit to eat with friends here. It was really great. Plenty of seating outside, some under cover if the weather is not as good as we had. Right by the side of the river it has wonderful views of people paddling down and Ross church in the distance. Good selection of bears and some delightfully different light lunchtime meals on the menu.

Went recently, because we were quite a large group we pre booked and ordered. Everyone was delighted with their food. It was piping hot, beautifully presented and the helpings were huge with a good choice of vegetables. The pub was warm and welcoming with a huge fire, we were cosy and comfortable. Beautiful Christmas trees too. Thank you Lindsey and staff.

Amazing place to visit! Stayed here for two nights, the food was amazing the seafood and mezzo platters where extremely good value, the views across the river were stunning, lots of wildlife thriving, swans, Canadian geese, king fishers, swifts, bats and ducks all within view from the beer garden! Jason, Lindsey, Lee and the whole team work hard to make everybody welcome! We had a fantastic time and will return during the Autumn to enjoy a couple of nights away and a Roast dinner.

Dropped in for lunch and a pint. Great outdoor space right by the river. Warm friendly staff and efficient, speedy service. Just had a simple sausage ciabatta but locally sourced sausage made all the difference. Can recommend the home made onion rings as a naughty side dish!

Visited for an evening meal during a canoe trip and found this to be very friendly with a laid back but efficient service. We felt very comfortable and the food was great. Views of our beloved river. Very reasonably priced and plenty of choice , will be back !
