There was 7 of us. When we arrived our table was all ready for us with views over the river. Although it was dark it was lovely to catch the lights reflecting in the rippling water.

My wife, our 8 year old son and I had lunch here on a very rainy boxing day. It was almost the only restaurant open in Ross. The setting on the edge of the Wye is superb and the bar lady friendly. The cauldron of vin chaud was finished by 2.30pm when we arrived so they were all in good... More

Our party of 14 all enjoyed the meals and attentive service from the staff here. For me, the portions were too large, but for anyone with a big appetite, tuck in! I had 'Whale of a Fish', and they weren't joking, others who had the Gammon, and Steak & pAle Pie were also staggered at the size of their meals.... More

Thank you to all at the White Lion for making our weekend of October canoeing and camping very amenable! For a group of us who were meeting up from all directions with differing wishes this was a great base, we enjoyed; hearty food, warming fire, relaxed atmosphere and beautiful misty views over the river.
