Always my favourite place to eat on my trips back home, great food as always love the home made chips! Great service and a lovely atmosphere, the perfect place to relax in a beer garden on a sunny day!

Well what can I say!!....me and my partner are always looking for "somewhere nice to eat" and when we came across this lovely little place we knew that we would defianatly be back!! Right from the start the welcome was warm and friendly and had that real "homely" feeling.A place where you could just sit and relax!
The menu was just what we was looking for and was not short of options! There really was something for everyone!! I could not fault the food in any way! And nor could my partner! And food wise he's a little fussy and not the easiest to please!
Even booked a table for a family get together as we can't wait to visit again!! Hopefully the weather will give us chance to try out the beer garden!! ;0)
Top marks folks for a really fabulous place and a great team!! :0)

I had previously visited this pub/restaurant and was in the UK and as a result planned my route to re-visit it. I was not let down in the least, I was delighted by the fact that i was recognised and greeted by the staff. The beer was in excellent condition and the attention to keeping it in such condition had not changed since my previous visit, this to me demonstrates a really good service delivery ethic. The food was brilliant, and I had a very pleasurable time there. I was struck by the fact that families were welcomed and that there was a safe play area for the children, this provided a really good atmosphere. It is a place that I will visit every time I am in the UK and in the area. Well done

I regularly eat at the White Lion and have always found service excellent. The menu offers a variety of meals and the outdoor play area is a great place for the little ones to explore as you enjoy the sun and eat alfresco.
