Just back from an overnight stay in this friendly village pub. Had a great welcome from a young member of staff and shown to my room and treated nicely. Went down for evening meal and a little disappointed no fish & chips on the menu but this happens. So opted for steak pie and hand-cut chips very nice. As a... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a trip to Rutland Water - there was a warm welcome when we arrived from Chris. Our room was clean and quite large - it had tea and coffee making, flat screen TV and en suite. It was really hot weather and unfortunately the windows only had a small opening at the top,... More

We booked the White Lion several months before our weekend away and the booking arrangements were unusually informal - no credit card required and no email to confirm. We phoned back to be assured, spoke to a manager and were again told it was no problem. The day before we were due to arrive we phoned to check what time... More

Again, may we apologise for the error in your room booking. Unfortunately one of our new team members was not aware of our booking process and did indeed as you rightly say, enter your booking in our restaurant diary and NOT on our computer booking system. The person you spoke to the day before was NOT the manager but the... More

After looking at several reviews, we thought we'd give it a shot. We liked the look of the menu, however when it came to ordering the food, pretty much everything we wanted wasn't available! I know that the food is sourced locally and is fresh which is great, however it's pretty useless if there's none to serve! We gave it... More

Thank you for your response. Unfortunately we did run out of some options on the menu after our 'feast week village party' . This being the chicken dishes, steak n ale pie and cheesecake. As we have 25 food items available we do not consider this to be 'half the menu'. Normally we would have prepared the dishes or purchased... More
