We went here last night for my mother in laws birthday and sadly the visit did not hit the mark. The pub itself looks lovely and thd choice is drinks were quite comprehensive and so we were really looking forward to our meals. The pub was full and sadly the staff clearly couldn't cope as it was 45 minutes until... More

My husband and I have been to the white lion on many occasions as a couple and as a family. The staff are very welcoming and approachable. The food is delicious and the portions are plentiful. There is plenty of parking and a pub garden for when the weather is warmer.

This was my first visit since refurbishment and its brilliant. We had a really lovely meal with our son, daughter in law and grand daughter. We all had different starters and mains and although the place was really busy we didn't have to wait for our food. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. I love the chips here !!!... More

All's I can say is you have done a cracking job with the decor, such a lovely place now, very cosy with the fires roaring, just what a country... More

Went with some friends to the newly refurbished White Lion and thought the place looked fabulous. The service was friendly, the place was packed and we were told of a 30-minute wait for food, which in reality took 45 minutes. The food was OK but the menu is so predictable and boring, all the usual pub dishes with nothing innovative... More

Been to the White Lion a few times now but most recently for New Years Eve and it is always a great visit. Food is always fabulous and there is a really interesting choice. Refurb is great and the personality of the staff is just fantastic! Lovely setting, very clean and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone!

Very surprised to see this gaf is only rated 3 and a half stars. I personally had no complaints. Fine selection of ales, hearty food, pleasant service, reasonably priced and a good view. What more do you want? Certainly enjoyed my visit. Nice one The White Lion. See you soon.

The pubs new refurbishment is absolutely beautiful. What a lovely place to eat and drink. During our recent visit over Christmas it was really nice to see such festive decoration throughout. I visited with my husband and friend for late weekend lunch and we all mentioned how friendly and attentive the staff who served us were, even during the busy... More

We visited the white lion yesterday the 3rd of January for my boyfriends birthday. We had heard very good things about this place and I can happily say we were not disappointed. We started off with the black pudding potato rosti which was GORGEOUS! I was surprised how fast all of our food was served it felt like the waitress... More
