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'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

We asked for a clean mug to replace a chipped and... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I am though somewhat bemused by your comments. Firstly regarding you having to eat under the pegola, I am sorry but you had not booked a table and we were fully booked in the pub so this was the only seating available which you chose to take, I am sorry...

We sat outside and had our order taken within minutes. Ordered starters of duck pancakes with spring onion and cumcumber with a drizzle of plumb sauce. This starter was... More

I have to say: I really dislike celebrating my birthday. Seriously: all body features rapidly decamping south, unless it's excess weight, in which case it remains remarkably buoyant. The White Lion makes you realise that such concerns are really rather foolish, as it soothes you with a lovely, comforting, family atmosphere and some seriously excellent food. The steak was sublime:... More
