The soup and bread arrived with no butter. Butter was asked for only to be told there would not be any until the order arrived. Margarine, No! Very little filling in the Chicken pie and mostly mushrooms in the beef pie. Cookies and Cream for adults dessert ordered, none until order arrives again. Very disappointing.

Very nice atmosphere and cozy decor with two log fires burning. Very busy night but the service flowed nicely. Menu has various options. Would recommend the beef has and potatoes for starter. Good task and good portion. Offer home made pot pies as well as other options though very much like a beefeater style menu otherwise. Two options for desert... More

I had a meal with my wife and a good friend one Saturday evening. The starters came out promptly and were very nice, the problems started with the main. Two of us ordered steak, both were VERY VERY under cooked. I asked for medium and my friend ask for medium well, they both came out rare if not blue. Which... More

Last time we visited White Lion we had a set menu which was meant to come with certain vegetables and sides, but ours didn't. When we questioned this the staff told us they ran out of them. It would have been nice to be told this when we ordered the meal as we might have gone for a different option.... More

Myself and 7 colleagues ate and drank here when staying at the nearby Casa. The staff and local's were all polite and friendly. The food was really nice, and very reasonably priced. It did take a little while before we saw our food, but it wasn't too bad, and as there were so many of us, I think the chef... More

Haven't been for a while and was concerned to read some negative feedback on here. However four of us ate here this evening and the food was good and it arrived quickly. Staff were efficient and friendly. This place definitely goes a little up and down, but we caught it on a quiet night and perhaps we were lucky. Don't... More

We hadn't booked a table but we were fitted in on a busy Saturday late afternoon. The serving staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. They were genuinely lovely to our two young girls.... The kids meals were huge and represented great value for money. Thank you
