Beautiful pub and lovely staff. Food was delicious and beer lovely. Great apart from the landlord. Very rude, unfriendly, hostile and drunk whilst behind the bar. Shame, as it made me and my family feel uncomfortable.

This is the perfect place to add on to a day visiting Stourhead (house and gardens). A quaint old English country inn set on a quiet back-road but boasting a gently vibrant atmosphere of an evening. The food is great and the staff friendly and efficient and all in a quirkily decorated interior. Good beer choice too !! There is... More

I stoped here for dinner on the way back from Cornwall on the way to sonehaven world heritage sight. The welcome was astonishing, only surpassed by my surprise 25 birthday party when I was just 21. We sat in the beautiful beer garden with our dogs (a terrier and cocker spaniel - a cross between a springer spaniel and a... More

Fancy a friendly country inn to enjoy a drink? Not expecting any thrills, tables and chairs that match or carpet? Then this is the place to go. Welcoming, friendly staff, not expensive, log fires and the ideal place to enjoy a few hours in the company of friendly locals.

Just six chaps of various ages out for "A Boy's Night Out" of the non-rowdy type and the White Lion was an ideal "country" setting. They welcomed us in a very friendly manner and fed and watered us handsomely. A very pleasant experience that did not break the bank.

We were looking for a B&B. Several were full and the WhiteLion was recommended. We were very thankful we went there. The room was over the restaurant but very quiet. It was very large and extremely clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant serves excellent food and the pub was full of the locals- great talk. Highly recommend.

Have a friend living in the area we often come here. This isnt a 'dress up venue', more come as you are. The bar is very much a wellies/outdoor/dogs-welcome kind of feel. Its not the warmest atmosphere (a bit village hall feel), desperately needs a womans touch, window dressing etc and a good lick of paint. The Friday night music... More

I have been going every Friday for the music, excellent beer, company and friendly bar staff for over a year now, however I have only just tried the burger...wow! It was up there in my top 5 ever, highly recommend it. Worth noting the bands can be a bit noisy on a Friday, but that is to be expected... You... More
