“Nice Food and Pub but booking had not been taken”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We booked a table for a meal but upon arrival were told that the booking was not written down. Thankfully this was not a problem (but could lead to embarrassment in the future) and the staff made good the booking and we had a nice meal and evening in a very cozy restaurant.

Despite there being an extremely crowded bar, as there was a darts match on, it did not disturb us, but actually made for a good atmosphere throughout.

Will try this place again, but will be sure that the booking has been written down.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012 via mobile

I found this great pub located just outside Stevenage. When we arrived, we were greeted in a warm friendly manor. The room was very clean an comfortable. Breakfast was not available but we had an evening meal which was great, with excellent service. My wife and I will return. Thanks for a great stay.

I recommended the White Lion to a friend who was visiting from Newcastle. He has stayed there before and felt it wasnt as good as it used to be. In addition to this, on check-in he was told there was no breakfast available in the morning as they didnt have a Chef to cook it! The final straw was them having the cheek to charge £10 for his labrador to stay in the room with him.
