Pub that does grub really. Not a great atmosphere but the food was ok - looks as if it had a great garden which would be ideal for a mellow summers evening drink. Beer was fine.

Best pint of Wye bitter I've found in the area and the grub is good too. The dog liked it so much we went back a second time and that wasn't just for the salted caramel ice cream! First night we landed was about 8pm on a Saturday and the landlady very kindly hurried off a group so that we... More

Went with my son and my sister in law. All main meals and desserts were very nice. Limited menu different to the internet so that needs updating. Booked a few hours before arriving and requested to sit outside which was no problem. Spent a lovely couple of hours there and the staff were lovely especially the girl who served the... More

Stopped off here on our way to Tenby. The setting is delightful and there is a lot of outddoor seating to take advantage of it: a covered terrace and picnic tables by the river. We only had basic food - sandwiches and some chips - but it was tasty and very reasonably priced. Staff were friendly. Will no doubt visit... More

Visited the White Lion as it was half way home. Menu was quite varied. ,My wife's was the whole plaice and mine was the Home cooked Ham, Double Egg and Chip both were very good. My only criticism would be the lack of people skills exhibited both by the bar and waiting staff. Unfriendly attitude can affect the likelihood of... More

Visited the pub today for lunch. The weather was beautiful so the setting (which is alongside the river) was tranquil and very picturesque. We arrived at midday when they opened so we had the pick of the tables. I ordered the whitebait and my wife had the ham and chips. Both dishes were vast tasty and were delivered expeditiously to...

My fiance and I visited on a Sunday after being recommended the place by our hotelier . We booked a table for dinner. Prior to dining here, we looked at their menu on their website. They appeared to have a varied menu. We arrived just after 8 pm. It was not busy. We were handed a menu with a choice... More
