I have been many times for lunch, always excellent but had an evening meal on April 10th. I had a lamb shank, followed by Creme brûlée and they were both superb. As I was driving I drank beer, Timothy Taylor's Landlord. This is one of the few pubs on the Island that serves it. The White Lion serves traditional pub... More

They were busy, but immediately attended to us in a friendly manner, and took our drinks order at the table whilst dishing out menus. Then another member of staff came along and told us what specials were available to... More

The uninspiring exterior should not deter you from going in to dine. Good selection of well cooked food, reasonably priced. Relaxed atmosphere in pleasant dining areas, staff friendly and helpful if a little over attentive.

This Pub is more for eating than drinking as it is located right next to the Arreton Barns, a popular attraction on the Isle of Wight, although it was March when we visited so still pre-tourist season. A good set menu offer is available at lunch times and this seems popular with locals. Not a huge vegetarian selection which two... More
