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.

We only stayed for one night but were really pleasantly surprised by this White Lion. The building was beautiful and the room was really pleasant. The staff were all very friendly and enthusiastic. I would, without question, stay there again.

We received a warm welcome on our arrival and were shown to our room by a friendly young man. Our room was wonderful, beautifully furnished, full of character and a very comfy bed. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food was superb. Our shared starter of king prawns in a garlic, leek and cream sauce was delicious, and... More

I don't usually stay in pubs but found The White Lion Inn to be ideal. The food at breakfast and dinner was of a very high standard as was the service during our two night stay. The room had everything that we needed in it and it was lovely to sit in the beer garden enjoying a drink in the... More

Fantastic food and service. Menu is really innovative but also has all the things a pub would offer as well. We have a wonderful time every time we go there. Can't recomment it enough. Staff remember you but treat new people just the same! If you are driving by, then chose this pub. Can't really recommend highly enough. Original, authentic... More

The food was excellent, well cooked and presented, more than ample helpings accompanied by some good local ciders.The regulars took time... More

Recently spent two nights in this beautiful old coaching inn. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food both in the restaurant and the bar, was excellent. The burger is delicious and my only complaint is that it's too big. I would strongly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting north Dorset, it is close to Stourhead and Sherborne... More
