Good points; Stunning riverside setting with views of river, canoes, wildlife etc. Varied, enticing menu. Friendly staff with mixture of locals and tourists making up clientele. Food appearance is great but not great portion sizes. Not so good points; Very busy when we called in for lunch (Saturday 12th July 2014) There was a golden retriever moving between the outsides...

We camped here overnight during our 5-day canoe trip on the Wye. The pub is easy to spot from the river. The landing site is fine if the river level is low but can be very slippery if it is wet, and there are a lot of trees and shrubs to get caught up in. The camping area is a... More

I fell in love with The White Lion on my first chance visit a few years ago, and have returned every year since. Jacqui and Dave, and all their staff, have always been happy and welcoming - and always very helpful - they have a great knowledge of things to do in the area. There have been a few staff... More

Stopped off at The White Lion, on the outskirts of Ross on Wye for lunch. The weather was glorious so we ate outdoors with a great view of the river, just yards away. Whilst the outdoor area is quite basic with rustic wooden tables and chairs, many people dropped by for lunch or to just enjoy a drink outdors and... More

We stayed here for one night in the middle of a canoe trip. Our twin room wasn't really in a great state of repair and the staff were a bit standoffish. The location is lovely and sitting in the beer garden looking into the river was a treat but the inn could do with matching its surroundings a bit more.... More

From the outset we were made to feel welcome. The hosts were very friendly, and the staff are a credit to the establishment. The food is superb, and service was quick and staff very pleasant and helpful. Thank Jacqui, Dave and Rhianne for a wonderful break. Tracey and Mark.

No complaints, very good evening meal, good breakfast, nice welcoming people. The location is amazing, and the food is tremendous -- just dont try to eat a starter and a main course unless you have not been fed of a week!! - the quality and service was great. It has a good selection of real ales and other beverages the... More

Just returned from a meal here. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming; the service efficient and attentive. We all had steak, which was cooked to perfection. The sticky toffee pudding is the best I've ever tasted. The prices are excellent - the children's menu is especially good, too - they don't make the assumption that all children are brought up...

Called in to this establishment after day canoeing on the river! At nearly 7pm we checked if they could take a booking for 8 of us and they very helpfully gave us a table within half an hour! Not only were the staff professional, polite, fun and witty but the local clientele were very friendly and fun too! We were... More
