Ray, I gave it 5 stars and said it was excellent. I agree with you as does my review. Are you confused with another review or reviewer. I have written 56 reviews. I suspect you sent this to the wrong person. D

...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.
