As locals we have visited this pub many times over the last 3 years and have always had a lovely time and enjoyed the food. Sadly, with a lack of management, the pub has gone downhill significantly. We visited on a quiet midweek afternoon, there were very few customers and whilst the young girl who was ‘working’ sat and chatted with her friend (whist eating her m&s salad) we sat with dirty, uncleared tables next to us. When asked if the kitchen was open she said ‘oh, I think the chef is on a break’. No service, pretty unfriendly and certainly won’t be rushing back in a hurry!

I haven't been to the white lion before and having a look at there wed site and trip advisor we though we would give it a go, and wished we didn't.
we booked thinking it was a restaurant. it wasn't. We had to order at the bar.
we ordered our food on less then 5 minutes later it turned up. (way to quick)
I ordered half a roast diner for our son and it was rubbish.
We all ordered roasts it wasn't very nice.
we couldn't wait to leave.

Very friendly and very good food. Essentially a pub with all the usual extras. Pub quiz and some live music.
The food menu is simple but never fails to satisfy.
