Well I have not had the priveledge of visiting jolly old England yet but I felt I had been there after visiting this little gem in Tulsa OK. I like to go to anything local and different and when I get the chance... well I am there. The White Lion was wonderful and it is rare that I go somewhere and look on the menu and decide what I am going to have the next time I come back. The location is tucked just off of 71st street on Canton (East of 71st & Yale). Yes the place is an older "house" and it is dark and some people say dingy... Well I call it character. I liotteraly felt like i should be seeing people in period attire walking through. It is that well decorated and set, you could have waiters in costume and it woul look right. Well enough of that. The place only holds 75 people so you might want to call for reservations on the busy nights but I was lucky enough to get in for a seat of 1 on this particular friday night. I was met with a by lady with a British accent and she sat me promptly. They were busy and it took a second for here to take care of me but hey they were busy. The menu is small but complete. Even though it is called a pub they can accomodate children so they even have a hamburger and grilled cheese on the menu. The wait staff is very friendly and very helpful. If you dont understand something on the menu he explained in american translation. I started with sausage rolls. My waiter brought me a bottle of HP to eat them with. I found out that HP is Englands A1 or worsteshire or a cross between both. It was different but tasty. Loved the the sausage rolls.I ordered the fish & chips. Lets say i have been looking for good fish & chips in tulsa... I have found them. Not a great big portion but... that brings me to the last things... the price. Not a big price. Everthing is not priced high. I dont t think anything is more than $15. The fish and chips are around $9. I was told the dish called "A Taste of the Midlands" is the dish to have so I am going back to have that one. So to close out this little review... I am going back, I am giving it my highest honors. If you are looking for different and possibly authentic English Pub food... This is that place. Some people call it bland... I call it food with character. This is also a place for a nice drink. You could go here right after work. The White Lion... I can't wait to visit this place again. BTW: Pub is open til 11:30... the kitchen closes at 9:30.
