We live local to the White Lion and have eaten there dozens of times over the last few years and it has always been excellent and we have recommended it to many people.

We are sorry that on this occasion when you dined with us you were disappointed on how the "Burger" meal was served to you. We didn't when writing our description of the meal as a Pulled Pork Burger think this would be misinterpretated so we will in future describe our Burger meals differently so this does not happen again.

Thank You. Comments when left by customers who visit on a regular basis but take the time to share their experience for others to read are always a pleasure to receive.

Visited whilst holidaying in Haworth and had the 3 course roast in the restaurant rather than the bar area. Food was plentiful and service very good. Banoffee Eton Mess with home made ice cream is one of the best desserts I've ever had. Well worth a visit.
