I went here with my wife while staying nearby for my birthday. After much searching on Trip advisor for somewhere good to eat I took a punt with here and we were not disappointed. We made a booking as understood it was a popular place and glad we did. The staff were very friendly and very attentive without being annoying.... More

We stopped here for lunch on a busy Easter Saturday at about 1.30; although the restaurant was fully booked, there was a cosy table for four in the bar area. Service at the bar was quick and efficient and the food came reasonably quickly. We particularly recommend the mussels (generous portion at reasonable price) and the Old Spot Sausages. We... More

We usually have the artisan pizzas here; probably are one of the best local places in Kent for pizzas. Often we find a quiet table in the bar area but on Saturday we took a table in the restaurant (I noticed there is also a table for about 6 people next to where the pizza preparation is). I had the...

First class service, escorted to our table, very attentative staff, especially Lydia,Freya and Alex. Food was excellent, and choice of real ales made the overall experience more than worthwhile. I will definitely be returning.

Stopped here for lunch after a tour at the nearby Old Dairy Brewery. Food was nice, beer was good with a seat outside in the sun. Would go back when in the area again!

We have eaten at White Lion a few times over the last year or so. Our last visit was on Mother's Day, when the restaurant was very busy. Hats off to the team - both service and food were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We ate a very generous Sunday roast and Sirloin steak, while our toddler tucked... More

We called in here after visiting the Old Dairy Brewery, just down the road. The food here was very nice, all four meals were very quickly eaten and there was a good selection of ales too. Nice to sit out the front in the sun (although too many umbrellas for my liking - blocking out the sun). Excellent service. Thank... More
