    We went for our 45th wedding anniversary, wanted a warm and friendly family atmosphere and we got that in bucket loads, fabulous meal and a lovely relaxed family atmosphere, staff great. Simply the best meal out for a long time, would strongly recommend the White Lion if you want a lovely meal in a relaxed atmosphere 😀

    Loved our visit here. Treated like family as soon as we arrived, welcomed by locals in the bar. Once seated we were taken care of so well by staff, drinks orders, food orders all executed perfectly with a perfect balance of attention and fun. Menu was lovely. 8 of us had a good range of meals, all plates cleared. Desert was also fabulous. The blackberry pear and white chocolate crumble was particularly delicious. We will be back.

    Amazing food. Luckily we booked a table for 12.15 as by 1.15 my chosen dish of pan fried Hake had sold out. It was truly delicious. My husband and his brother both had the fish and chips.. the portion sizes are excellent and, in fact, a bit large for a lunchtime. Great value for money as everything is cooked perfectly.

    Perfect evening for my partners 60th birthday dinner. Such a cosy pub and restaurant with super friendly and helpful staff. Our food was delicious and served at the perfect temperature. We asked if a birthday cake could be brought out after the meal which was kindly agreed. Excellent value for money and will return again soon.
