This was our 5th visit to the White Lion in Great Longstone but sadly, it may be our last. The service wasn’t as good as usual and the food was, overall, poor. My partner’s starter was good but mine wasn’t. However, it was really the main course that let the whole evening down. We had the pork and mushroom stroganoff but it just did not taste like any stroganoff I had ever had before. The main problem was that it was full of little pickled onions (yep! Strange, but true). There were more pickled onions than there were mushrooms and this made it taste awful. Perhaps the chef couldn’t be bothered to peel real onions and cook the stroganoff properly! The other main problem was that it was very cold in the restaurant area. I was wearing a winter jumper but I was still cold and it is difficult to enjoy a meal when you are cold. It may be May but the heating still needed to be on! As I said, disappointing this time.
