Long wait for food when it was not very busy. Staff were apologetic but can't really understand why it took a long time for straightforward order. Food was ok.

Awesome pub under new management Staff excel in their service. Well trained, familiar, brilliant customer service! Rhys and James the barman- superb service, fun, welcoming. New menu - cooked to perfection by Lizzie, george and Dan! I'm a stickler for lamb and it literally fell off the bone. Delicious, rich gravy blending in seamlessly with mashed potatoes.... A roaring log... More

Been here in and off for several years, vintage inns really need to get a grip with this pub, it COULD be the best pub in Yateley, is a proper oldy worldly looking pub inside, I bought some American friends in here a few years ago and they loved the feel of the place. But it's gone downhill over the... More

We came to this pub after cycling around the area. We wanted some lunch. When we arrived, there was no one at the bar or in the restaurant for a good 10 minutes so we went for a wander around and found the kitchen where a waiter came out and said he'd be with us in a moment. Ok. We... More

Just had a really lovely meal at the White Lion. Sheryl was really excellent, lot's of attention and very, very thoughtful but gave us lots of space too. This place has really improved, nice menu, good value, and very good service. Very kind staff sang 'Happy Birthday' for Mum which made her evening.

Whilst we often drink in the White Lion, only on a few occasions have we eaten there and its always been snacks. But we had made a booking valentines Day as there was a set menu that caught my wife's eye. It was priced very competitively and looked tempting. The food was very good and great portions on all courses.... More

This used to be a pub with a lovely welcoming atmosphere and ok food but over the last few years has declined in both the customer service and the food that they serve their paying customers. Last night was the final straw for me and my family and without a doubt our worse meal ever. Ordering basic meals, I had... More

When we ordered our food, I was told that my choice, salmon, had run out. My mum ordered roast chicken which had also run out. I asked what else had run out before making a second choice. Two other items were unavailable and my dad ordered the last lamb! It would have been helpful if the waiter could have informed... More
