We went here for a friends birthday. Staff were warm & friendly. Food was really good & they had meal deals. I had mushrooms in a cheesy sauce with bread which was lovely & then a burger with bacon relish which was devine, triple cooked chips. All of us really enjoyed what we ordered. I would highly recommend this pub... More

Freezer failed so had to go out to Dinner! Service was relaxed but the chicken pie was very nice and my wife's risotto was 'one of the best'. Zinfandel was an interesting and full flavoured option. Bill was slow flow flow tho.

Oh dear, what has happened!? Been visiting the white lion for many years & have always had nice food. Today we really fancied a nice roast dinner cooked for us instead of slaving away at home, so out of all our locals we chose the white lion because we have always had a good food there. It was awful! It... More

This place is lovely and good with accomodating a big group of people. The staff were really friendly despite some of our party turning up extremely late... The food is good but it's a little pricey for a pub - more of your gastro pub kinda place.

Visiting one of our local pub/restaurants to celebrate my wife's birthday turned out to be one of the worst restaurant experiences we have ever had. It is such a shame as we have had pretty decent food here before but tonight was a disaster. Our meals consisted of one rump steak, one cured meat pizza and three duck salads along... More

Didn't book just turned up as we decided to try out a local pub/restaurant. We got seated straight away and service was quick. The drinks and food were served quick and was good. We would go back again

Visited one Monday night for a meal for two. No one else in the restaurant. We did not have starters, but ordered one Steak Medium Rare and one Pizza. Took a while, but eventually arrived. The pizza was very good but the steak was cremated. One quick lesson in cooking, pizza takes longer to cook the a medium rare steak.... More

Total last minute decision to eat at The White Lion, as our plans fell through. No problem getting a table on a fairly busy Easter Sunday. Staff were quiet but friendly. Atmosphere was cosy and comfortable. Food was good. Plenty of it. The roast is a decent size. One little thing, the beef was on the edge of ok. It... More

We had a large party. Service was very poor. Drinks were handed down the table not individually given out. One pizza was so late out from the kitchen it had to be given on the house. The continental pizza contained one type of foreign meat. My wife's burger didn't have chuckney and when questioned the waiter said it didn't come... More
