Good honest food at value for money prices which will not break the bank or leave you feeling hungry. Good outside space, but booking probably advisable at the weekend.

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.

This was one of several eating establishments recommended by the B&B where we stayed overnight. This is more like a pub than a restaurant, complete with family dog! It is right on the river and has beautiful views - you can eat outside as well, weather permitting. The pub was not crowded and we had a great time with the... More

Over the bank holiday weekend we were glamping near to Ross on Wye and visited the White Lion for a meal. The pub is in a beautiful setting right next to the river with plenty of space outside if it is a sunny evening. The food here is proper home cooked pub grub! The staff and locals are really friendly... More

My wife and I have recently spent the weekend at the Bridge House in Wilton, Ross-on-Wye and on two of the three evenings we walked the 75 yards to the White Lion. Here we enjoyed the riverside view, the friendly service and an excellent home cooked meal. We would recommend the Lamb Shank with Rosemary Gravy followed by one of... More

We visited yesterday for a bite to eat and a few drinks and were greeted with friendly staff who accommodated us. The view from the river is lovely and looks like summer would be buzzing. We were originally invited to sit in the dining room. But this was a bit dark and lacked atmosphere so a but disappointing. Luckily the... More

Walked from town one hot Tuesday lunchtime especially to visit this place. No advice on Web page as to what time they're open...but we took the risk. Arrived here dead on 2:30pm to be told the restaurant had now closed (at 2:30!!)...and, besides, they were "catering for a party of pensioners". Ok! I turned tail & never even stopped for... More

We booked in advance as it was Easter Sunday. The food was good quality and cooked well. The staff were efficient and attentive. It was a lovely sunny day so the view of the river was an added attraction.
