Camped here on the second night of a canoe trip along the river Wye. Nice friendly welcome by the bar staff, good selection of ales. Camp site faces the river and has a stunning view. Very wide ranging food menu, mostly typical pub grub. Fried breakfast a bit of a let down and slightly overpriced. Main gripe was the 24... More

We camped at this Riverside pub on their lawn for one night where it was surprisingly quiet. The staff were helpful and courteous, the ale was excellent and the food (dinner and breakfast) was pretty good too.

Came here with my parents for lunch. Fantastic setting right on the river with pretty garden and covered patio area. Friendly staff and great drinks selection. Menu was good and a wide variety of food to choose from..... took me ages to decide what to have. Opted for fish pie which was served with a lovely very generous size salad.... More

We arrived at the White Lion, mid-afternoon, on our second day of Canoeing on the River Wye, never was a sight more wonderful for weary travellers! We were in a small party, two teenagers and two ladies on a half-term adventure. Pulling the canoe on to the bank was a bit of a challenge (no more so than anywhere else... More

On a visit down to see family we stopped off for lunch at this delightful inn overlooking the river. My husband had the Cheddar and Brie summer salad and I had the ham summer salad and they were delicious but beware the portion are large. The ham was beautiful and home cooked and there must have been 5 thick slices.... More

Called in at lunchtime for a quick bite to eat on our way to Devon for a week's holiday. The staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The homemade fish finger sandwich and the bacon and brie are definitely to be recommended! We just wish the weather had been a bit warmer so that we could have sat outside and... More

My other half and I were staying in the area for a work trip and stumbled upon the White Lion. We were so glad we did! We shared a perfectly chilled and very reasonably priced bottle of prosecco and had the fish pie and steak and ale pie with extra veg for mains. The food was so tasty, absolutely home... More

We stayed overnight and enjoyed a good evening meal and smashing cooked breakfast. We spent the evening in the bar which was very friendly, and all of the staff were very welcoming. Although the rooms could do with a bit of decorating and TLC, the great service and wonderful setting made all the difference.

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.
