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!

Prior to arrival I rang to book dinner at the pub and was informed by the manager that on that date he was away and the kitchen would be closed due to previous issues ! He assured me however that breakfast was included and would be provided. On arrival we were shown to our room which was in an annexe... More

Just had a fantastic weekend in Geddington for Geddfest and the village street fair. However the accommodation that we stayed in @ The White Lion in Queen Street was a real let down. As someone else has said the rooms were dirty with cobwebs everywhere, the bathroom fittings had been broken, the carpets, windowsills and skirting boards were filthy, something... More

The pub itself is well past a re-furb! As for the 'bungalow' rooms, dirty, grotesque carpet, filthy net curtains, windows never seen a clean since it was built ! Furniture scratched and smelt damp. Plaster falling off the walls , hole in bathroom door where someone has kicked it. Old tiles, filthy shower unit. Very old beds, springs stuck in... More
