Stopped on way home from work. Bar staff very friendly and polite. Showed where would be nice to sit. Waitress Michelle was the only waitress working, she was busy but remained polite, friendly and helpful all the time. Pub is lovely in itself, felt warm & cosy and food was really nice. Definitely a place to go back too.

My husband and I went to the White Lion in Yateley, where we live, as a special treat for my husband's birthday. We have eaten there before but not recently and not since it became part of the Vintage Inns chain. We reserved a table on-line a few days beforehand which was extremely easy to do and we received an... More

Attended by 12 adults and 3 young children. Most of us had three courses and all were very hot and tasty. Prices were very reasonable working out to an average cost of £30 a head for adults and £10 for each child. Service was a little slow but the restaurant was busy as it was a Sunday afternoon. The staff... More

A very good night out. The food was excellent, although could have been slightly warmer, however that is being very picky. The waitress was brilliant and nothing was to much trouble. Also the selection of rose wine has improved

Chicken cooked well, and the bacon addition on the top was good too. But the chips are never triple cooked. They were soggy, too large and very starchy. Zero... More

It was our Pure Beginners who graduated from our running club and in celebration I booked tables for 27 people of whom 25 attended, paid our deposit and provided our menu choices a week in advance, to the lovely Michelle. Extremely efficient in her approach when organising the evening and nothing was too much trouble. Upon arriving to the venue,... More
