Pleasant atmosphere

Ate here on new years eve and had a very nice meal. Was the only resturant we could get into at short notice. Staff were very pleasant and food was of good quality and reasonably priced. Not a large menu but enough to choose from

Two adults and two children ate here last week and we had a very enjoyable meal. My ham, egg and chips was very nice. Two steaks were ordered and they were good and tasty. Service was good. It was just right. We were not kept hanging about and nor were we rushed. I eat here quite often with girl friends... More

Been visiting this place since about 1977. Used to be a good pub but now just a local average restaurant and pub. Wherever you stand you are in the way. The food is a hit and miss. At best it can be quite good and unfortunately at worst can be very average. Wouldn't recommend it as there are better places... More

This was my first and will be my last visit to the white lion pub. I was extremely disappointed with my food. The presentation was awful a toddler could have done better. The food itself was just awful. It was cold and was like it had been microwaved. I had pie which left a strange after taste in my mouth.... More

We had a very good meal here and the staff were very helpful. As usual with the Vintage Inns the menus have changed in view of the time of year. Which is an idea i like. I do get fed up of going to restaurants for return vsits to find the same menu each time. The food was very good.... More

So firstly the picture shown here is NOT of the White Lion in Yateley...However, the Yateley version is a pretty decent pub. Beer is well kept and there is a reasonable selection. The food is at the upper end of standard pub fare. Nice ambience inside, too.

A meal out for my birthday, initially i wasn't looking forward to it, but when we got in The White Lion, the food selection was good, even there there were a few items on the menu that they'd run out of. Prices are standard fare for these types of places. I can recommend swapping the chips for the Sweet Potato... More

The White Lion has all the original qualities of a pub, even with open fires. The menu and wine list is varied, so plenty to choose from; the presentation, quantity and quality of the food is excellent. Plenty of spaces to park. Would I go there again? Yes.

Once again a birthday comes around and this is the 76th time it has, My family thought it was a good idea to have a late lunch at one of my favourite Pub/Restaurants and so looking forward to this treat we were greeted and sat within a few minuets in a warm cosy area of this large Pub.
