“Best food and people!”
Review of The White Lion

The White Lion
Ranked #1 of 2 Restaurants in Niton
Restaurant details
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We made a weekend trip to the Isle with my boyfriend and motorbike. We stopped at The White Lion for a late Sunday lunch after he (totally unexpectedly) proposed at the Needles. The food was delicious and luckily well sized portions :) Best apple crumble. The adventure started after the meal when we got on the bike to return to our hotel. The bike had his own mind though, after a mile or so it started to cough and stopped in the dark middle of nowhere. My boyfriend ripped it apart but nothing helped. Finally we pushed it back near the pub, in a short while a small crowd gathered and we got everything from sandpaper and reflectors to good advice on life and stuff. I was really amazed how wonderful all the people were to us, can't thank you enough. All the best to the staff at The White Lion and all lovely people in Niton, hope to visit again soon (on a different bike). Julia

Fantastic pub- excellent food at excellent prices- management and staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome- the customer service is exceptional- great selection of real ales on offer and all kept well to endure perfect pint! Back room has been completely refurbished in reds and tartan /woodland theme and is so lovely and cosy- a wonderful place to eat- the garden is excellent for children and has a bouncy castle, play house etc and to top it all off its dog friendly so you can bring your four legged friends too...! Can not recommend it enough!
