    Menu had nothing special on it for the prices. Carrot and curry soup was just that liquidised carrot with curry powder added.

    Every item we chose was beautifully prepared and presented; the welcome felt sincere and service was timely and efficient, professional and unobtrusive. The only improvement might be to have a little more salad garnish with the (otherwise superb) seafood sharing platter starter and a slightly larger piece of (delicious) focaccia with the (also delicious) saganaki prawn main. Regretfully, we did not have room for dessert!

    The menu was safe, allergies were thoughtfully considered. We all chose differently and were all pleased with the dishes we were served. Service was jolly and fun

    Waitress laugh was a tad to loud, almost a shrill. But other than that all the guest on our table said it was a lovely place with great food

    Dinner and service was great, and, although we all had 'Pie of the Day', which was lovely, the menu choice was good. Our only problem was lack of parking, which, at 18:00 on a Wednesday evening was unexpected. That said, it took nothing away from a very pleasant early evening.

    Booked an overnight stay at the white lion and ate dinner in the restaurant. The pub is much bigger than it looks from the outside. Really nice atmosphere and locals were friendly. Service was attentive and staff were really helpful and friendly. Food was great with a nice selection on the menu. I opted for a Caesar salad and fries which were cooked well and tasty 😋. Will definitely come back if I'm in the area.
