We went for an early dinner tonight and booked a table for two. We need not have booked. We always chose to sit in the bar area as ordering at the bar is usually smoother than the waitress service in the restaurant. We noticed externally...More

...YES! We offer a choice of turkey, beef, lamb or a mix of all three! Scrumptious spuds, classic veggies and all the trimmings. Booking advised for a Sunday- when they're gone, they're gone!

A cosy, traditional country pub with stunning grounds and al fresco dining area nestled in a quaint Cheshire village. We serve fresh food, including a children's menu, from 12pm-9pm and serve drinks from our varied bar selection until 11pm. Popular for good cask beers, good food and good people, The White Lion is the perfect pit-stop for a drink or a bite to eat. We cater for large parties and offer a buffet menu for guests to choose from, or simply pre-order from our delicious a-la-carte.
