Excellent Sunday roast - had the combination of 3 meats, thick flavoursome gravy, and accompanying veg. Starters and desserts also excellent. Took a while for food to come but worth it!

...YES! We offer a choice of turkey, beef, lamb or a mix of all three! Scrumptious spuds, classic veggies and all the trimmings. Booking advised for a Sunday- when they're gone, they're gone!

A cosy, traditional country pub with stunning grounds and al fresco dining area nestled in a quaint Cheshire village. We serve fresh food, including a children's menu, from 12pm-9pm and serve drinks from our varied bar selection until 11pm. Popular for good cask beers, good food and good people, The White Lion is the perfect pit-stop for a drink or a bite to eat. We cater for large parties and offer a buffet menu for guests to choose from, or simply pre-order from our delicious a-la-carte.
