We arrived late in Bala looking for an evening meal and entered the White Lion because of the menu on show. The Manageress was very helpful and made sure that the kitchens were able to serve us. The food was very good quality and hot, which is always a bonus. The only downside was that the decor was a little tired and so the atmosphere was not as good as it could be.

Went into the White Lion in Bala looking for a place to have a cup tea. We were greeted by friendly staff, Eileen who not only made us feel right at home but was extremely pleasant and sense of humour was brilliant. Me and my partner are camping this weekend and I will definitly be going back in
there. Would even consider staying the night :-) a lovely place with lovely staff.

Travelling through the area and looking for lunch. Delighted with this - 3 roasts - super vegetables, red cabbage, broccoli, excellent cauliflower cheese, carrots and 3 different tupes of potatoes. Generous portions, efficient courteous service. Hit the spot exactly.

Had a meal here on the first day I arrived as I couldn;t be bothered cooking the first night. I had the "pie of the day" which was chicken and mushroom. It was great, crusty pastry and good filling and overall a good size for a meal (hate it when you order a pie in a restruant and it arrives the size of a minuture pork pie). Came with either mash or chips I went fr mash which again was good and well sized. It also came wiht a side of veg which I didn't realy touch but overall my meal was nice and well priced.

Service was good although we were the only people in the restraunt so probably not a great yardstick to measure by.

My only complaint was the kids pizza was awful - looked and tasted burnt - this could of been a one off. I should have complained about it but it was that first day of holiday after travelling for hours so couldn't be bothered so my own fault really.

Room Tip: Ony ate here never stayed...

The food is good value and so are the drinks, but the bar could really do with a good clean and some general updating, it is cluttered and old fashioned. I had a burger with tomato salsa and cheese and it was absolutely delicious, the buns were fresh and the meat was succulent. If you do not care about the appearence then head here as it was definitely tasty!
