Good to be back

We haven't had a meal at The White Lion for a few years now because on our last visit we weren't happy at all with the food or service. However, we decided to try again and went with some friends. We were pleasantly surprised to see the pub seems to have been refurbished and tidied up. We had four... read more

Came here on Sunday evening after a disastrous experience at the wheatsheaf Virginia water at lunchtime. Service was friendly, efficient and to a high standard. Food was lovely with large portion sizes. The wine was also reasonably priced. Comfortable seating areas, friendly staff and overall a lovely atmosphere. Will definitely be back!

Took my husband here for his birthday. The Brie and Pate for starters were delicious and the Chicken and Leek pie was very good. Rump steak was nice but only criticism was that the steak could have rested a little longer to tenderise it but other than that it was a very nice meal. Assistant Manager Beccy was very attentive...

New landlady/manager recently arrived. Seems to be doing a good job in terms of turning the White lion around. Good food. Excellant location

This the second time I've been there recently and there excuse for not having any GF bread was due to their supplier letting them down. There are 3 shops in Yateley that sell GF products so go out and buy some!!!!

This is part of the Vintage Inns chain and is fairly OK but a bit changeable; it presently has a good manager! Not bad for a quick lunch and usually fairly good, but not excellent but is fairly cheap with an extensive range and prices. Sundays are hectic. Decent beers at fair price. Possible to eat very cheaply

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 to... More

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
