Super country pub

Lunched here on the way to West Wales. Good food, nice service and warm ambiance. This pub is tucked away just off the A449 and is well worth finding and putting on your list of places to eat.

We visited this establishment on a very sunny weekend when they were very busy. The White Lion is located right next to the river and one can venture down to the stepping stones for a paddle! They have a reasonably large outside space which enjoys a fantastic view. The interior decor is somewhat dated and could do with a lick... More

We took my brother to Ross for the day, and kicked off with lunch at The White Lion. It's a favourite of ours for many years, having first discovered it from the river, whilst on a canoeing holiday down the Wye. They remain canoeist friendly, but as it was midweek, there weren't many around. As always, the food was well... More

My friends and I decided to visit the White Lion for lunch as it was a gorgeous sunny day. We had a table outside which was lovely, we were overlooking the river. Service was a little slow, but it was busy outside. The food was ok, nice portion sizes and presentation. All in all, the surroundings were absolutely beautiful, perfect... More

Typical fisherman's Wye side pub. Lively and friendly. The food was surprisingly good if somewhat rustic. Literally Wye side it is a beatiful spot.

This used to be the gaol to the Wilton Court which is now the hotel. Good selection of bar food, reasonably priced with riverside seating. Ideal for couples, familes and singles.

Don't let the previous comment put you off. The white lion is a lovely pub in a great location run by down to earth people. It's a proper place to get decent pub meals. The steak and ale pie was the best I've ever had... so tasty and the jumbo fish is a right treat. The deserts are fab too.... More

My wife & l have been visiting this area for the last 9 years or so mainly for the excellent coarse fishing on the River Wye. We stay for a week & no visit is complete without going to the White Lion. We always find a warm welcome, good food, good local ale & good conversation with landlord Dave.
