“Entertaining Friends”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We took two friends for dinner and drinks who had not dined there before.We stayed there for 3 hours eating 3 courses of excellent food.We felt that our friends really enjoyed the evening and they said they would return to the White Lion again.
Locally sourced pheasant &partridge were on the menu as well as fresh roast cod all cooked to order.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Return visit to celebrate a family birthday. Food very good and plentiful.The steak medalions are well recommended. Menu was a little limited this time with not a great choice on the specials board.Best to go in the game season for the locally caught pheasant etc if that's your perfered food

“good food in friendly surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

I chose to take my dad for sunday lunch after reading positive reviews. I am happy to say that the restaurant did not dissappoint. We arrived earlier than our booked time, and were allowed to chose which table to eat at. For a while we were the only customers and this was a little disconcerting, but soon several other tables of diners arrived. The room itself is light and airy and is traditioinally decorated. The menu was traditional Sunday roasts, a fish and a veggie option. The portions were enormous and there was plenty of really nice vegetables. There was also a good choice of sweets. The service was quick and friendly. The four of us really enjoyed enjoyed it, and £80 for three courses and two rounds of drinks was exceptionally good value. Harlaston is a pretty village and it was a nice place to go on a lovely sunny day.

“The perfect village pub for excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Visited the White Lion on many occassions as my local village pub. Superb food freshly cooked and served in a delightful little pub restaurant. Excellent choice of menu and plentiful servings. I enjoy going back to this pub time and time again in the knowledge that I am going to recieve first class service in a friendly environment and will leave at the end of the night completely satisfied. Congratualtions to Bev and Mark for maintaining such high standards.
