It's always difficult to find somewhere that continues serving Sunday lunch past 4 o'clock, as I work every Sunday this is a problem! Problem solved... Easy to find, warm and welcoming, friendly smiling staff are always a bonus! We were quickly supplied with menus whilst we had a drink in the cosy bar area. The restaurant area was lovely, tables well spaced, very clean and relaxing. My partner and I had beef with all the trimmings, the large selection of vegetables, all fresh, were perfectly cooked, well presented on hot plates with very good gravy and excellent Yorkshire pud. Sticky toffee pud to follow, probably not home made but very enjoyable never the less, and there was a choice of home made desserts if required. Finished the meal with very reasonably priced liquor coffee. Food, service, surroundings and price make this an excellent choice, will definitely return.

Having had a busy shop in Worksop town, thought my wife and I would pop by for a coffee, as its always good here. When we arrived, we where greeted with a warm smile and a welcoming atmosphere. It was warm and very inviting after the trek and being blown around town. A short while after we had our coffees, the young lady asked if we would like any nibble's, to which we decided to have a bowl of olives and feta cheese and side of spiced wedges. The olives came with warm crusty bread, balsamic and olive oil. Wow, both dishes tasted great and filled with flavor, Yum.. A nice sized portions of each too, which was perfect to share. Great food, coffee and the service friendly and pleasant. Will be back for sure.

The White Lion is my favourite pub for Sunday lunch. Its lovely and cosy with a nice atmosphere. The owners are friendly and attentive, and the food is consistently good. Lovely homemade Yorkshire puddings and the veg is always fresh, seasonal and perfectly cooked. No soggy veg here! Great puddings too.

Good food at a reasonable price, friendly staff. Food choice for children could be better by offering a half portion / child version of the adult menus. Would definately visit again and recommend to others.

Just been to The White Lion in Worksop for the first time and i must say the service and food in this traditional pub was outstanding. We eat out quite regularly and have been struggling to find consistent quality in the local area, but it looks like we have found it now and will definitely be regular visitors to this venue in future. The soup was delicious and the main courses and deserts were even better. One of my daughters was on a egg diet and they even manged to accommodate this special request.
