We spent 2 nights here in August, booking at the last minute as the weather was too rainy for camping with an enthusiastic border collie in tow. The staff are friendly and welcoming, and the room was clean with tea making stuff & a sink. Shared bathrooms are modern and clean, and the shower was hot with good water pressure.... More

Food here is disgraceful!!! We picked from the menus and the specials board only to be told they were sold out of the only special we wanted to order. The Lasagne was dry no sauce, my granddaughters beef burger was ok but the cheese was chewy. The chips on all of the meals were cold and when they took the... More

Called in with friends for the first time and the atmosphere was really good and the staff extremely friendly. We all ordered different meals and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food. Terrific value for money and will certainly come back again.

The White Lion is in the middle of town and had clean rooms that were quaintly decorated... The bed was nice and the staff were friendly and accommodating. However, the fire alarm went off in the middle of the night. The first time several guests made our way to the bar, to find out it was a false alarm. The... More

I was booked in here for work for one night only, my expectations were not high as I knew this was a pub and not a hotel. My room was on a higher floor so no issue with bar noise, however it was on the front overlooking the road and with single glazed sash windows the road noise was quite... More

Great job guys, I had a really good time there! It is a pleasure to meet people with the spirit of hospitality. Pub was great too. Something that was a little disturbing, the very active couple in room next to us (although I can't blame the hotel for that). I would pleasantly come back

We had not booked in advance and were offered a lovely room at a very reasonable price with an ensuite shower room. Very comfortable bed too. Good selection of real ales, the menu looked ok but hubby wanted an Indian meal so didn't eat in. Good atsmophere.
