Reviewed yesterday NEW

Met up with family for a pre-Christmas lunch and present exchange. Decent selection of beer and wine, friendly and buzzy atmosphere and the food was excellent and plentiful. Particularly recommend the pies, which are epic. Sunday roast was also good and decent portion with plenty of veg.

We took my uncle to the pub because he loves meat pies and we knew the White Lion Inn had an excellent choice. We were not disappointed and he was thrilled. Car parking was easy and we had a good reception once inside the pub. Portions were generous and the pies had plenty of meat.

What a cracking pub - the Wherwell residents are so lucky to have such a friendly and welcoming local. We stayed bed and breakfast for a family weekend break and were very comfortable indeed. The pub is known for its high quality pies. We each ordered a different one, but then all tried each others and loved them all. Well... More

We arrived for lunch and found a warm welcome, and a menu with bar food and restaurant food. The restaurant food is cooked on the premises, and also contains locally made produce. We had a steak and ale pie, and faggots. These were both made locally and were very good. There are also home made desserts and a sample of... More

I was on business this visit but have stayed a few times on fly fishing trips as well. The food is consistently fantastic with an amazing selection of pies. I opted for the fish... More

We only had main courses as had planned to have afternoon tea with family nearby. We were all pleased with our food. I had the curry pie which was excellent, what I call a proper pie (not like those flaky pastry topped ones you get in a lot of pubs). I had my pie with chips and peas, it came... More

This is such a great place to spend time. The welcome could not have been warmer or more friendly, and the staff went out of their way to attend us. The sandwiches were delicious, and my wife was most impressed with the range of ciders.

Great menu and a range of classic homemade pies you will have to go a long way to equal. Comprehensive selection of real ales, wines and ciders. We live 35 miles away in Berkshire and we have been there three times in one month - it has become our 'local'. Run by two brothers and a brilliant collection of smiling... More

I visited the White Lion as a bit of a hanger on, a good friend of mine was there to welcome back to the UK close friends who had been abroad for some years, I was the driver. On arrival I immediately liked the atmosphere and the overall feel of the place, it was clear that this was a well... More
