What a fabulous evening from the moment we walked in through the door! The ambience magical, food delicious (as usual) and the singers were superbly theatrical darling…. just the job. Thank you so much Paul for organising this treat, can’t wait for the next themed evening. Merry Christmas to you and the team.

The White Lion Inn was a great place to stay. Fabulous food. Paul is a talented chef, and an interesting character. All the staff is personable. Room accommodations could use a little tweaking, but we were comfortable. We would definitely go back.

The staff were genuinely friendly, the dinner was the best we have had in 3 weeks in the UK, and the host/owner Paul, gave us service above and beyond expectations, borrowing another bed for the night as he didn't have a kingsize bed for us!
