Ate in here this evening and whilst it was ok it certainly wasn't great! There wasn't much atmosphere and the service was slow! My burger was ok but partners steak was ropey and like shoe leather! Prob would return again but I am sure as a general pub it's ok.

Had read a few dodgy reviews but our friends had been several times before so we took their advice. Pleasant drink outside first, then we waited ages for the starter. The prawn and lobster starter was good but the mixed platter (arrived without side plates) was small and not that good value. Mains arrived - 3 roasts (hardly any veg,... More

First visit here for Sunday lunch, it was mid afternoon after the rush, pub looked lovely, staff friendly. From the long list of ales they had on the on line menu there were a choice of just 2 ales. We were asked to wait while they cleared a table for us despite there being only a few other people there.... More

We happened to be passing this pub at lunchtime and visited for lunch. As it was warm, we decided to sit outside and were served fairly promptly and pleasantly. The risotto and baked camembert were ordered and although took a while to arrive, were extremely tasty and appetizing. We relaxed with coffee whilst watching the passing traffic. The only let-down...

Friendly pub cum restaurant with lots of local clientele. Nice selection of food on menu but slightly above the average pub grub prices. Full service restaurant in the evening.

While sat here I read lots of reviews saying this place was not very good. Poor portions, rude staff etc. I have just finished lunch and found almost the complete opposite. The food was really good and the speed of service excellent the only thing missing for me is the occasional smile from the stoney faced staff. Let me know... More

I have visited the White Lion on many occasions over the past 36 years, some have been good and some not so good. I recently took my Canadian visitors there for an evening meal and we were very disappointed with the service. We had to wait an hour and a quarter for our meal with no update or apology for...
