We did not know where to go for dinner so stopped by at the White Lion. Busy, bustling bar but the staff kept up and were pleasant under pressure. Waited a bit for food but it was good on arrival and decent sized portions. Ideal for a quick bite.

I visit the White Lion on a fairly regular basis with friends and family. Sometimes for a ladies lunch, sometimes for a family celebration, sometimes for a nice cold drink in the glorious sunshine! Today with family and friends for lunch. I have only ever received a very warm welcome, brilliant customer service and outstanding quality food. I would highly... More

We always get good service here. The food was good and the atmosphere relaxing. No loud music to interrupt your meal. They have minimised the menu recently, so there not quite such a large choice, but it caters for most tastes.

Had lunch with my husband today at the White Lion, but was very disappointed overall. There was insufficient fish in the fish pie to start with, but no-one asked if our meals were ok and, having finished our main course, no-one bothered to enquire whether we would like dessert or coffee. We didn't stay. Sorry White Lion, you really need... More

i visited this place for a lunch with a friend. We both had the goats cheese salad. This was very attractively presented and tasted delicious. We chose the mini pud and coffee option to follow, and the Pimms Eton Mess was just perfect. A small pot of deliciousness. Well worth a visit.

May 3rd 2014 - We wanted to try another "Vintage Inn", having enjoyed "The Golden Retriever" at Bracknell. Unfortunately, The White Lion fails on most counts. The starters were all very poor and we had Prawns in their shells which were very small. By the time the shell was off, the meat was so small it was hardly worth eating.... More

I visited here with a friend at lunchtime and as it was not that busy, there was a lovely, quiet, relaxed atmosphere in the restaurant inside the pub itself. Waiter gave good, attentive service and the food came quite quickly.There was a fairly extensive range of dishes on the menu, most of the mains were reasonably priced, just a small... More

We stopped here bank holiday Sunday. Staff were all very pleasant, Sunday lunch and lamb shoulder were both delicious.
