We stayed on a Friday night in the superior room (room number 2) for my birthday treat. We received a very warm welcome from Will after a 2 hour drive & we were shown our room. The place was beautiful, typical of its period! Roaring fire, creaky floorboards and a very friendly black cat. Loved the little tea cups on... More

Meeting friends for dinner last night, table booked for 6 people at 7.30pm, we waited over an hour and still no food had arrived. Enquiring at the bar we were told they would chase the kitchen. Starters arrived - cold soup, but by the time we had found someone to point this out, the rest of us had finished our... More

A bit late with our comments but better late than never. We stayed for just one night (a Friday) and was prepared to cancel based on a previous guests comment. However we arrived at lunchtime and thought it was perfectly acceptable so we booked in and had a light lunch in the bar. A more than generous baguette was provided... More

My wife and I fancied a break out West Country way and found the White Lion via Mr. Google - three nights for the price of two. It's well placed to go to Bath (30 Miles), Cheddar Gorge (30 miles), Shaftesbury (10 miles - The 'Hovis' Hill) and you drive past Stonehenge on the way. Also, it's only about 1.5... More

Everything that could be wrong was wrong. A terrible experience had at the White Lion. Due to my partner being 6'4" we ALWAYS search for and book rooms with KINGSIZE beds. After finding on Expedia this place, it stated that 2 nights in a double room would be £110 or 2 nights in a superior kingsize room with kingsize bed... More

Lovely traditional pub with very friendly staff. We stayed midweek for a night in the red room, which was reasonable value but a little basic - the room looked unfinished and rather hurriedly put together, a light bulb in the bathroom was out of action, and the mirror in the bathroom was balanced precariously on the sink. But the room... More

Very conveniently located with an attractive beer garden. Very good food with excellent service and reasonable value. Check your bill as we were accidentally over charged the price of a bottle for a glass of wine which we did not discover until after we left. They will make a refund in due course I hope.

Quaint old stone walled pub that has loads of character, friendly staff, good variety of beers and cider and comfortable rooms (although the standard double bed is very small). Restaurant food was very average and breakfast was a bit limited with just a small choice of cereals and only one fruit juice. Orders were taken by the chef as there... More
