Have not visited white lion for quite a while. Although we live in the village, it is not one of our favourite places. However friends booked for 8pm on a saturday night. Unsure after reading some current reviews what it would be like. It turned out to be very busy, so we were seated in the bar area to the... More

Came here for dinner with a friend as the pub was local and it had been recommended to me. I was very impressed. Great food, great atmosphere and great service. What more can you want. Added bonus of a 2 course deal which was extremely reasonable. The pub was very busy for a Monday but the service remained excellent. I... More

We booked a table for 8 o'clock, very easy to book on the internet but not so easy to get to your table! We arrived just before 8 and waited first by one side of the bar and then the other! It was only when we ordered drinks that we were able to ask about our table .... a bit... More

My son finished three years at Coventry University in the summer. Every time I visited him we tended to go and have lunch at the White Lion. It was his graduation last week and I wanted us to have a really nice lunch somewhere before the ceremony. The White Lion was the obvious choice. Having not been there for some... More

This is a pub restaurant. We went for Sunday lunch. Previous reviews made me fear the worst, but it was OK. Service was fine and there were lots of staff serving. Room was warm and cosy. Meals generally OK, bearing in mind this is standard pub meals rather than a restaurant. The meat in the beef and merlot pie was... More

Called in here for an evening meal with friends. Had not visited before but we were all impressed by the warm feel of the place and the friendly welcoming staff. More pub restaurant, it was nearly full on a Thursday night so I would recommend booking to avoid disappointment. Some tables are closer together than others so check first if... More

I've been here numerous times and never been disappointed. The service is spot on & I especially like their Sunday roast! The fire makes it cosy during these winter months & overall is an enjoyable experience

How do you review a chain pub when the menu and decor is the same in every one? Vintage inns menu is good, well priced and the portions are the right size. The beer was well kept and the staff attentive and polite. So it was just about right. The building is a nice one with log fires and the... More
