“Nice pub”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

We needed a quick place for dinner after a day of touring before a show at the Phoenix. We happened on the White Lion. We told our waitress we had show tickets and she was great at getting us served and on our way in time. Our food was very good and the prices were reasonable. Would go back again.

“Drinks are okay, Service not the best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Does everywhere in CG just like to be difficult when it comes to service - i understand the demands of working with so many customers but don't choose this job if that's a demand you can't keep up with! One tall gentleman serving was an absolute star thank you! The only one who seemed happy to serve us...

“Such a pleasant place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We were just tired and hungry and happened to be passing by the White Lion. So, we decided, why not hop in and try it out. Well, good that we did. It was just lovely, especially the starter. We had a huge portion of fish and chips and some great beer and ale. We loved the atmosphere and the feel of the place, but the best thing by far is the extremely lovely staff. Thank you, girls
