After a trying day, we went to the White Lion

Ithe menu has changed, for the better. There is more variety and they have a special menu each evening at a set price. We stayed in the main menu though. I had the baked Brie which is very nice though not as much of as the last time we had it. The chicken liver pate is also very good. As... read more

I have been to the White Lion on many occasions over the last 14 years. It is a very popular pub and always busy but personally I don't quite "get it" For me, it really lacks the atmosphere you would want for a "local" pub. For some reason, they are always sooo slow in serving drinks Maybe its because the... More

Easily found, plenty of nooks to dine in privacy. Menu thoughtful and not at all over priced. Steak was very good indeed, Pork Belly a better than decent dish. Service no obtrusive but friendly. 8/10 , a lot better than a many local pub/restaurants we have visited, we will return.

A return visit to an old Yateley standard, and I have to say having had lunch at the pub over the road (D and P), much preferred the experience here, mainly as the ambience felt vastly better, the real fires (two of them) appeared to be properly ventilated here, and children, animals and staff here appeared to be kept properly...

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.
