We used the pub as a base for a country walk followed by lunch for a group of about 12 of us. We had originally booked for 20 but fewer people decided to join us in the end. From our first enquiry, through to the booking and the change of numbers, the landlord Steve could not have been more helpful.... More

Thank you Steve and the team for a warm welcome and professional service we recieved today when we popped in for lunch. The meal was hot, tasty and good value for money, the decor is tasteful and well presented and the overall cleanliness was very good. We will be customers for life and have no hesitation in recommending to family... More

After visiting The White Lion for the first time, I was very impressed with the service, the decor and the fantastic food. The re-fit looks lovely. I would like to thank Russell and Steve for being so welcoming. I will be coming again soon.

This is a local pub to me and it has just undergone a change of management and major refit. The interior is very nice and no loud music or massive screens showing muted programmes. However, I took my wife there for a drink between Xmas and New Year and was very unimpressed. The "person" who served us, well if you... More

Happened to be passing through this small village and thought I'd stop for lunch. Amazing first impression of interior given age of pub. Very friendly staff who greeted me on entrance. Menu selection felt spoilt for choice and if was passing through area again would definitely drop in. Ordered the home made beef burger which was seasoned to perfection with... More

We recently visited the White Lion pub with my family. The staff & landlord were really welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. The food was well priced, my only comment would be that it would be great to get some gastro pub /slow cooked type food in the area, rather than average pub grub. I would however go again.

I thought I would try a meal at the White Lion as it is one of my locals and unfortunately regretted it. When we walked into the bar the landlord didnt even say hello or welcome us and seemed very distracted and not very with it at all. There were only 2 of us eating - we each ordered a... More

I enjoyed a lovely lunch today with my Husband, Daughter and 22 month old Grandson. The pub has been reburbished to a high standard but has retained it's charm. The food was well presented and good value. We were made to feel welcome and the staff were friendly. It is about 4 years since my last visit but I shall... More

I have just read the other reviews, and can only think they went to a different pub, as our experience was very different. The pub was busy, with lots of people standing at the bar, making it difficult to get drinks and order food… The menu, was uninspiring, to say the least…both our meals were nothing more than average, in...

I'm a local and always loved the White Lion for its atmosphere and setting. I was devastated to see it go down hill (food and service wise) after the last long term landlord left at the end of 2012. I couldn't wait to go again when I heard it was taken over by a new landlord early November and I... More
