Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room was large and we'll furnished. Tea/coffee facilities were excellent. Bathroom was spotless. As we were on first floor at the front of the hotel there was some noise from the bar and traffic but not enough to be an issue.

A group of us went to the White Lion for a meal from their Christmas menu. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the staff were very attentive and friendly, particularly our waitress Amanda. Lots of choice and a wonderfully festive atmosphere.

This pub has a restaurant which is quite separate from its bars. A pleasantly informal setting providing friendly if somewhat amateurish levels of service. There were four in our party, so we sampled a fair selection off the menu of simple pub grub. Fish and chips, pulled beef hamburger, and bangers and mash. All dishes we underwhelming in terms of...

Lovely old pub in the centre of Tenterden, lots of atmosphere and creaking floors and genial host. Our room was rather small but manageable for a one night stay. There were plenty of little extras in the room, which was clean and relatively quiet. Our breakfast experience was poor, after about 15 minutes I had to go and ask for...

Room was big with incredibly great taste. Bathroom very clean, and well equiped.

Came in for drinks tonight with family and absorbed the great atmosphere. I ordered drinks from the bar from a lovely girl called Lydia who was very polite and attentive, she was able to recommend a house wine and had a smile on her face the whole time. Great customer service ! Highly recommended

I have had three friends either eat or stay at the white lion and all have been very disappointed Eating the place cannot offer decent food , from steak to share to chicken in foil it was poor. So bad they sent the £46 steak back, for two, and had pizza at no cost. That's is not the point though...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Following a stunning recent refurbishment the White Lion Hotel now gracefully combines ‘olde world’ charms with a contemporary look and feel. All of the rooms (including family and superior rooms) have been delightfully re-furbished to provide guests with flat screen TVs displaying over 40 digital channels, hairdryers, tea and coffee making facilities and new luxurious beds and bedding. Guests can also make use of the function and conference facilities, complimentary WiFi and the restaurant, serving quality fresh food sourced from the best suppliers. The pub remains the heart and soul of the White Lion Hotel and food is our specialty. The enhanced environment, combined with a fantastic new fresh food offer, allows guests to enjoy either a meal in our bar, or for more of an occasion dine in our restaurant. Diners and drinkers alike can also enjoy one of our many real ales or wines selected from around the world. The town itself has been described as ‘the Jewel of the Weald’, with wide tree lined streets, historic buildings, inns and a host of specialist shops. Out and about there are picture postcard villages to explore, manor houses and gardens, and of course, Leeds Castle, set in 500 acres of parkland. ... more   less
