This pub on the approach road to Ross on Wye from the A40 seems to be popular and was very busy. The menu had a reasonable selection of the usual "pub grub" type meals and there were also some specials on a board above the bar. The portions were generous but it would have been good to have had some... More

The fish and chips was billed as 'famous', and quite right too - the best I've eaten (and I've had a few). My wife had the zebra special, that too was excellent. All in a very friendly old-fashioned pub with no frills, just great service and good local beer. Can't be better!

The scampi was great and the Herefordshire beefburger likewise Nice beer selection and the location next to the River Wye is fabulous-although we were there in November and it was chilly

We only popped in for a drink. The pub is in a great location on the river. Good beer and dog friendly. Pleasant riverside walk.

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
