We were motivated to go due to the refurb as it is not somewhere I frequent. I am used to going for wakes! I went a few years ago and did not feel the desire to return after quite an anonymous visit. The meet and greet was okay, but service felt like it was by a team of students/young people... More

Hello cheshiremedium, Thanks for you concise and lovely review. We are also enjoying the roaring fires but can't wait to see the garden bathed in sun in Summer 2017! We hope to see you then. Warm regards, Phoebe Thomas Assistant Manager More

We went here last night for my mother in laws birthday and sadly the visit did not hit the mark. The pub itself looks lovely and thd choice is drinks were quite comprehensive and so we were really looking forward to our meals. The pub was full and sadly the staff clearly couldn't cope as it was 45 minutes until... More

Hello slocker1, Thank you for taking the time to review us. I am sorry you didn't enjoy your evening with us. I don't know what inspired you to write that our staff 'couldn't cope'. If your starters were delayed it would be a kitchen issue. We prefer fresh food that is prepared to order so often service can be slightly... More

My husband and I have been to the white lion on many occasions as a couple and as a family. The staff are very welcoming and approachable. The food is delicious and the portions are plentiful. There is plenty of parking and a pub garden for when the weather is warmer.

This was my first visit since refurbishment and its brilliant. We had a really lovely meal with our son, daughter in law and grand daughter. We all had different starters and mains and although the place was really busy we didn't have to wait for our food. The service was quick, efficient and friendly. I love the chips here !!!... More

Went with some friends to the newly refurbished White Lion and thought the place looked fabulous. The service was friendly, the place was packed and we were told of a 30-minute wait for food, which in reality took 45 minutes. The food was OK but the menu is so predictable and boring, all the usual pub dishes with nothing innovative... More

Been to the White Lion a few times now but most recently for New Years Eve and it is always a great visit. Food is always fabulous and there is a really interesting choice. Refurb is great and the personality of the staff is just fantastic! Lovely setting, very clean and welcoming. Would recommend to anyone!

Very surprised to see this gaf is only rated 3 and a half stars. I personally had no complaints. Fine selection of ales, hearty food, pleasant service, reasonably priced and a good view. What more do you want? Certainly enjoyed my visit. Nice one The White Lion. See you soon.
