Eaten here on several occasions and we have never had an average meal -,the food is always well presented and is delicious - the only problem is we can never manage desert - which all sound lovely.

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.

Booked another restaurant nearby in Haworth for lunch and when we got there told they had sold out of the beef etc. moved onto the old white lion. Menu looked ok so decided to stay. Good beers and wine and good food. Service a little slow but compensated by atmosphere. We will go again and would recommend
