Came for Sunday lunch. Staff were very friendly and we didn't wait too long despite bring a large group. However the food wasn't up to the standard I would expect - the roast potatoes and yorkshire pudding were overcooked and the beef very tough. A shame.

Been to many of this chain and our group's lunchtime visit this week, I have to say was very good. The food portions were good and all said theirs was tasty. Often service is an issue at this chain but I have to say the service although not d=fast was pretty good and very friendly.

Liked this restaurant a few years ago - not anymore. Went for lunch today with 3 small children. Soup was OK but very mean -barely half a bowl. Waited at least 15mins for ice cream! before I had to go and ask for it as kids were getting very impatient. Definitely off my list for future visits.

As we didn’t have any plans for lunch, my wife suggested we walk down to the White Lion for a meal. Despite the fact that it just a 5 minute walk from home, this is a venue we normally avoid going to, or any other Vintage Inn as a matter of fact. The main reasons being the uncertainty of quality/quantity... More

I have always thought the White Lion has been a bit hit and miss, but we had lunch there yesterday and the southern fried chicken (batter to die for), onion rings, tomato past and rare beef sandwich were all superb. I always think a measure of quality is if the onion rings are re-constituted or hand cut and there's was... More

I have been visiting this pub for the last fie years and have always found it to be ok.... a little overpriced but generally alright, but over the summer I feel there has been a marked deterioration on food quality and an increase in the cost of drinking there. £45 pounds for a platter and a bottle and a half...

This was our first time here. We both had a pie which were absolutely scrummy. It is a lovely place with really pleasant staff. I would thoroughly recommend it.

We had a brilliant meal here tonight ( august 2014) . It was pie night and I had the chicken and pulled pork pie and it was to die for. The pastry was flaky and the filling was plentiful. We had the cheese board and a chocolate brownie for pudding. We shared them. We both left absolutely stuffed but we'd... More

Four of us visited at 7.30PM on Thursday 8 August without making a booking. We were warmly greeted and shown to a choice of tables and very well looked after all evening. Apologies that there was no chicken left - it was a very busy (popular) venue - but the seared salmon chosen instead was delicious. So were the generously-filled... More
