Decided to try out The White Lion Bar/Restaurant for an early dinner with friends, but was pretty disappointed. Wasn't sure about the inside decor, slightly tacky and not really in keeping with the clifton area.
We went out onto the terrace, it was a really sunny and the views were amazing, definitely worth having a visit. Especially as they have one of the gromits on show.
I ordered the ham, egg and chips, a standard fail safe pub dinner. Although the service was speedy, the meal was poor. The ham extremely salty and dry, the chips bog standard... And at a price of £7.95, bit extortionate. Overall pretty shoddy meal.
To make matters worse, whilst enjoying the views, we were interrupted by unattended plates on tables being attacked by hoards of seagulls, disrupting our meal. Something that could have been avoided if the staff and checked outside for plates. They were left for a good hour or so. Not impressed.
