Visited one Monday night for a meal for two. No one else in the restaurant. We did not have starters, but ordered one Steak Medium Rare and one Pizza. Took a while, but eventually arrived. The pizza was very good but the steak was cremated....More

Total last minute decision to eat at The White Lion, as our plans fell through. No problem getting a table on a fairly busy Easter Sunday. Staff were quiet but friendly. Atmosphere was cosy and comfortable. Food was good. Plenty of it. The roast is...More

Four of us (adults) enjoyed a very nice leisurely Sunday lunch. The food was very good and we had excellent service. As the weather was great, many people opted to eat and drink outside so the venue wasn't crowded inside, where we we're seated. We...More

Hadn't visited for a while, so our visit on Saturday was not what we expected. The new menu is big n words, but failed to deliver. We decided on 2 portions of Warm Rustic Breads at £3.45 each. This turned out to be thin slices...More

Long wait for food when it was not very busy. Staff were apologetic but can't really understand why it took a long time for straightforward order. Food was ok.
