“Wonderful meal in a friendly pub”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

We were staying locally for 1 night and the White Lion was recommended as a good place to eat and we were not disappointed. The menu was good with a wide range of pub favourites as well as a selection of the more unusual. Service was outstanding and the food, portion sizes were spot on. The staff were very friendly, the wine and beer were spot on and the place had a lovely atmosphere. If in the area we would certainly eat there again and recommend it family and friends.

“Love This Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2013

Great little pub for a few on the weekend or on a sunny afternoon. The staff are very friendly, reasonable prices and the food is gorgeous. Great to sit out the front in summer, and warm and cosy inside in the winter. All round a great place to go. Would defernetly recommend this place to friends and family.

It was a nice pub which served late. It was very close to the Castle Green B&B which was convenient for getting home
