The decor was dated and unclean... Food pricey for what it was... Needs a complete overhaul of food,decor,and kept clean.! Such a shame as it has a lovely position overlooking the river. Not a nice place for family eating.

Picked out of the blue, we couldn't fault the restaurant when we met family there for a Mothers Day lunch. The food was great, the service speedy, and staff very friendly and helpful. We will be going there again.

My wife and I had dinner there. The atmosphere is most definitely "local pub" rather than hotel. Lot's of jolly locals at the bar and families with kids. If you are looking for a fun place to have a drink it's OK. I can't recommend it for food though based on the meal we were served which was a throwback... More

We were canoeing the Wye River for 3 days stopping off at little pubs along the way. The White Lion just past Ross on Wye was the perfect stop, places to pull the canoe up, storage for paddles etc. and a warm welcome. Our room was warm and comfortable and our meal in the bar downstairs home cooked and just... More

Located in the village of Wilton, a stone's throw from the centre of Ross-On-Wye and yards from the A40, the White Lion is a classic, red sandstone Hereford building in an enviable riverside setting, with a large, sheltered deck and patio overlooking the river and the countryside beyond. We were watching pheasants whilst eating lunch Although the building is historic,... More

I am sum what dumbfounded by RhysP review as he hasn't as such mentioned the quality of the food just the mistake they had brought on themselves. It was lucky a member of staff knocked and... More

I've never stayed there but been for many a sunday roast - every time we have visited The White Lion in Ross-on-Wye we have had a fantastic experience! The food is scrummy and the atmosphere is warm, friendly, homely, cosy, relaxed...I could go on!!! I hope nothing changes, ever...x
