For such a small menu the food was far from good. Ordered a 10oz sirloin steak, was informed it would be hard to cook it with no blood(!!!) as they were thick steaks, I suggested butterflying the steak and when it arrived I can only assume it was more like 6oz and rump steak and tough as old boots!!!

We stayed here for one night recently for a visit back to my home village. New management are very keen and getting the interior back into shape. We stayed in one of the four rooms at the rear of the property and whilst basic are more than adequate and should be great when the refurb has been done. Evening meal... More

We knew that The White Lion ws under new management so decided to give it a try. Four of us went for dinner at 7o'clock on Wednesday night and what a meal it was. We ordered as follows, lasagne, steak and kidney pudding, homemade beefburger and battered haddock. The food was piping hot and delicious. Not a scrap was left... More

Was supposed to stay here back in August 2014 - looks like a nice pub and decent place to stay if you drive in from the front, so looked forward to our night. Was told we were in the bungalows at the back, walked through to find out the bungalows were more like sheds. There were 4 of us staying... More

Been here a couple of times and the food has always been nice. Great place for a quick bite to eat with very friendly staff. When I visited I had lunch both times. This was steak the first time and apart from the chips being a little undercooked the meal was great value for money. The second meal was a... More

My wife and I went there for a pub lunch yesterday and very nice it was too. The lunch-time menu is very limited but at £4.95 for a main course it was excellent value for the money. I had sausage and mash with onion gravy and veg while my wife had ham, egg and chips. Ordinary pub grub but well... More

We recently re-visited The White Lion and were pleasantly surpised to see it has recently been taken over. The food is great value and tasty. A new chef who used to work at Rushton Hall! I understand a revamp is coming, including the guest rooms. The new manager is very friendly and welcoming as are all the staff.

The annexe nest to the pub is dated, very basic but adequate. The pub itself is also dated and was very quiet when we were there but the food was excellent and the staff very welcoming. Fantastic value for money!
