The White Lion is a great pub with great food. The staff are efficient and charming and the atmosphere is exactly how an English pub should be. If you like a good old fashioned pie,you won't be disappointed.

“A really pleasant find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I stumbled across the White Lion yesterday looking for a place to eat away from the motorway service stations. Really helpful and friendly staff, all looking smart in matching uniforms. Great food and a really nice atmosphere (still festooned with cobwebs and interesting spiders from their halloween party). Lovely Sunday roast with excellent Yorkshire Puddings (even with the pork).

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

Had a really great night out Friday, after a beautiful meal. We had the camembert starter to share, my wife had the fillet of salmon, and myself, the fillet steak strips, in a beautiful cream, mushroom and chardonnay sauce, superb meal, Great value for money, warm environment. Very pleasantly surprised as to how good everything was for our first visit. Great place, food, and service.. good work team..

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Really great home cooked food, highly recommend the White Lion Burger. Staff are friendly and the surroundings are lovely. Great on a sunny day as they have a nice beer garden.
