The White Lion has changed hands since I was there a year ago but not altogether for the better. I will say up front I got a very cheap deal for 4 nights B&B through the previous owners which was honoured by the new management. The pros: the barman who was on in the evenings for the first 3 nights...

We visited patterdale and went to the white lion inn for a drink and meal on Saturday night. The pub was very busy so it may be wise to book a table for eating at weekends. had fish and chips which was very good and lots of food. Good choice of beers. Would recommend.

We went to the White lion for a meal last night and the food was excellent, good large plates. The staff were warm and welcoming. The pub itself needs abit of updating but is comfortable we believe it has new owners so an update could be in the future. Thank you for wonderful food and a nice welcome.

The food was traditional pub food at a reasonable price, something which is hard to find these days. We had the leek and potato soup, a large portion with a good...

Hi graney, thanks for taking the time and effort in reviewing us. Don't worry we have no intention of going down the gastro route, The White Lion has been here hundreds of years and although we will tweak it we want to keep a traditional pub feel. Cheers Ashley & Andy
