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

Four of us ate here for Sunday lunch. We were able to book a table over the phone. There was plenty to choose from on the menu, although we all had the roast- on the day we went, there was a choice of sirloin beef or roast pork. The service was great - we were well looked after and the... More

A good place to stay as a stop over. Only 2 miles from A303. The staff were very welcoming, they gave great service. There was a good choice of food and a selection of ciders to try. The room was clean and comfortable, but it was at the front of the pub, so on a warm night with windows open,... More

The pub inside and out was beautiful and had such character with positive vibes. Everyone was so friendly and very helpful. The room and bathroom were lovely and very clean (and I'm a bit of a clean freak!). There were lots of personal touches and everything we needed was ready and there for us when we arrived. The breakfast was... More

Beautiful pub, wonderful food and fantastic service. The apple crumble was lovely and it came with custard. Beautiful artwork on the walls that you can buy. I would highly recommend this pub. it also has a car park!

Was recommended this pub for a Sunday roast and was glad we were! Lamb roast with all the trimmings and one of the best apple pies we've all had in a long time! The staff were really friendly and we can't wait to go back next time we're in the area.

Stayed here for 1 night to break up the journey to Devon. After initially going to the bar for something to eat, ended up there till closing time having great banter with the staff and locals. Food was amazing both at tea and breakfast. Room was small but full of character. Overall great stay, would definitely recommend and would return.
