Description: A traditional pub set in beautiful countryside a stone’s throw from Staffordshire, Shropshire and Cheshire borders. The White Lion’s 17th Century bar featuring roaring fires, traditional cask ales and award winning wines and spirits is cosy, full of atmosphere and welcoming to all – including dogs! The restaurant is light and airy with lots of space to relax and enjoy great food and better company. We take food very seriously. We are all about celebrating the best of local produce by delivering simple & beautiful plates of Great British pub grub – classic recipes done brilliantly! We are committed to using ethically sourced ingredients of the best quality. If its grown, laid or fed in a field, our aim is to source from within twenty miles of the pub and if it swims then, sustainable and ethical fishing is key to it being served on the plate. We have a passion for British, seasonal produce and a genuine love for beautifully presented and freshly cooked food.

Wife and I had Sunday lunch here, sirloin of beef was incredible so soft and tender and pink. 've getables were superb roast potatoes withsmoked paprika, carrots in breadcrumbs. All served by smiling attentive staff. When I enquired about the potatoes, the head chef came to our table and explained his menu. I cannot fault the lunch try for yourself, you won't be disappointed. By the way I'm a chef.

We recently revisited The White Lion after quite a few years and were delighted with the excellent menu choice - especially the FISH!
Yesterday was our Wedding Anniversary so my wife and I decided to try their Sunday Lunch which was superb!
The staff are so welcoming and friendly, this will become one of our regular haunts

We have eaten here twice. First on a Sunday, their roast dinner is stunning but especially their roast in a bun is beautiful and excellent value for money. Our second visit tonight we had the most delicious mussels we have ever eaten in the UK and juicy perfectly cooked venison. We did have issue with a couple items we ordered for which we would have given a lower rating however the way in which the owner handled our feedback was impeccable, she took our negative comments in a positive manner which is how they were intended. We love to support local independents and this is the best food we have had in the area so we hope they continue to go from strength to strength, we will certainly be eating there again in the future. I think it is important to note that due to family commitments it was a rare night where neither of the owners could be on the pass. They are clearly very passionate about their food so I think the issues we had were a one off and not a reflection of their usual standards.
