Food not too bad since our last visit. Inside is drab without much atmosphere and could do with a refurb. Bonus was a glass of wine free with a main course. Wasn't asked if we would like dessert but as we didn't it was not important. Sad to see so many empty tables on a Friday night in contrast... read more

Great Pub with an outside seating area to sit and enjoy a good dinner and a drink in the sunny weather!

After visiting my dad in hospital, we wanted to cheer ourselves up by eating out. The White Lion in Yateley Hampshire, came to our rescue and with the excellent savings made by our Gourmet card we had a superb value for money meal. If you want convenience and first class customer service in the late hours of the day I'd... More

Always nice to sit outside on a sunny evening. A good old fashioned English pub with a good menu and the bar prices are sensible too.

Have been a few times for 'early' tea. The food has always been very good and well presented. Inside can feel a little 'gloomy' and dark - or maybe it's my age! The staff are always friendly and attentive.

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... 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.
