Having walked to the establishment we anticipated looking forward to our supper. No welcome from the bar staff even though it was a quiet evening. The menu presented was varied but having chosen a safe dish accompanied by hand cut chips. I had to request that the chips be removed as they were so dark and oily in appearance to suggest they were not fresh. Spoilt our evening.

Ate here with a group of friends last night and couldn't rate it more highly. My friends mixed grill was cooked to perfection and my vegetable wellington was gorgeous. Very generous portions to boot, with vegetables and chips cooked to perfection and 'proper' Massive compliment to spen the chef!

The staff here are fantastic, friendly, happy and fun, and can't do enough for you and makes such a marvellous change from so many eating establishments in this day and age..

Needless to say, we will be back!!

We were staying locally for 1 night and the White Lion was recommended as a good place to eat and we were not disappointed. The menu was good with a wide range of pub favourites as well as a selection of the more unusual. Service was outstanding and the food, portion sizes were spot on. The staff were very friendly, the wine and beer were spot on and the place had a lovely atmosphere. If in the area we would certainly eat there again and recommend it family and friends.

Great little pub for a few on the weekend or on a sunny afternoon. The staff are very friendly, reasonable prices and the food is gorgeous. Great to sit out the front in summer, and warm and cosy inside in the winter. All round a great place to go. Would defernetly recommend this place to friends and family.
