A lovely 3-bedroomed hostelry where the location is great, the welcome, very hospitable; the food; excellent. This has been a second time of a visit at this, to my wife and I, we regard as a secret hide-hole (especially as animals are welcome). We will be back again and, unfortunately from our point of view, I recommend it to anyone...

An old aquaintance called me and invited me for lunch. The choice was easy it is my local, which is very good. We both had steak and kidney pie which is superb. The portions were massive and delicious.

This is a thoroughly nice place. The location is good, offering easy access from the A303, the ambience is quiet and team there are nice. The While Lion has a good selection of beers and the food is of a very high standard - well cooked, and using decent ingredients. And the menu on offer is sufficiently broad for most...
