“nice Sunday lunch but quite expensive”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Perfectly adequate Sunday pub lunch but with starters at £5.00,main £8.00 dessert £5.00 equals £18.00 for three coarse's quite expensive soft drinks also pricey half pint of post mix Pepsi £2.40. baby orange juice with a splash of lemonade £2.10 plus you get them yourself from the bar. overall four stars for food three for value. seemed quiet perhaps due to price.

“Great food”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

We went to this public house on the 23rd, fully booked in the restaurant area due to the christmas rush . We sat in the bar which was also full within one hour of our arrival.
The food was excellent, cooked to perfection.
This is a very very quaint public house, extended behind and to the side to cope with its popularity.
The village is very nice and one this sunny winters day we walked the castle grounds - next door. well nearly. The went in to Oswestry just 3 miles away, most of the shops were closed being Sunday, but still very busy driving through the town. All in all a lovely day out

“Sunday Roast Feast”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Met with friends here and enjoyed a lovely Sunday roast. Simple food, plentiful and delicious. Sadly too full to have desert.

Simple menu but offering plenty of choice and good value. Advisable to book as it is a popular eating place for locals - always a good sign! The conservatory looks out over the remains of Whittington Castle and lovely outdoor seating area which would be lovely in the summer months.

Left the White Lion feeling happy and satisfied. Thank you.

“Nice Food”
Reviewed October 30, 2012

The food was very good and staff very helpful went in about 6pm and was told the only table they had left was in the main bar area but we could see the restuarant which was empty and by the time we had ordered eaten and finished only one table had been taken. Would have enjoyed the experience more if we had been in the main restaurant but can not fault the food.
