Good service, with attentive waiter. Food was nice, although the website was a bit deceptive in that we thought we'd be in the countryside and the pub itself didn't look as good in 'person' as from the website.

I have eaten here twice recently and on both occasions have come away feeling relaxed and mellow, the congenial atmosphere of this pub ensures any visit will be a good one. The menu is varied and a reasonable price, the food is well cooked and beautifully presented. I wouldn't hesitate to return should the occasion arise.

This is a very popular pub/restaurant which we use often for mid week meals when cooking feels like a chore. We've always been made welcome and enjoy the ambiance especially when the open fire is lit. There are always customers outside on warm days and children are welcome.

We ate here on Mothers day and we thought it was ok. The service was rather slow considering it was a limited set menu and it didn't seem to be especially busy. The food was ok but nothing special. There is plenty of space in the restaurant so there was no problem with making a reservation. This is a reasonable... More

The word "Average" springs to mind,The prices in our opion were slighllty high and the service was efficient but very mechanical. We can't say we would rush to return here but neither would we go out of our way to... More

I've eaten here a few times while on business, somewhat because it is quite convenient for where I work, but mostly because the food and service is truly great. Would highly recommend the White Lion to anyone looking for a good quality lunch. You should definitely visit while in the area.

The set lunch menu in this place is very reasonably priced and there is a good choice. We have a gourmet card which saved us 25% on the bill so our bill for lunch for two including drinks came to just a few pence over £20 a very good deal. The portions weren't huge but more than adequate. I would... More

Meal for four on Friday evening. It took 45 mins to be given a menu and drink orders taken. It was 2 hours before the main course arrived! One main course was supposed to be on a bed of spinach that didn't exist and the other three meals were over cooked and dry. They did reduce the bill but I... More
