We calld in on spec with daughter, son-in-law and toddler grandson for Sunday Lunch today, and we were quickly seated at a comfy table in the pleasant conservatory. Found the staff to be very helpful and cheery, and they accommodated all our requests very happily. Food arrived quickly and we were all pleased with our meals - 2 roast lamb, 1 roast beef, 1 roast pork and a very generous child’s portion of scampi and chips, along with good roasties and nicely cooked vegetables. Four of us took dessert and they were all delicious too. Very impressed and will certainly go back. Good food, generous portions and excellent value for money. Thanks to all the girls waiting on today.

I can’t believe this place isn’t bustling with customers! Stayed at Lion Quays but didn’t want to pay their dinner prices, so drove here, just 5 minutes away. Service was excellent, attentive and timely. The food was a triumph. Depp fried Brie and red currant sauce for me, pate for him indoors. Ample, generous side salad and flavoursome including the warm baguette with the homemade pate. However the main course was divine. We chose from the specials board - pheasant wrapped in bacon served with apple compote and cider sauce. Stir fried strips of beef in mushroom, brandy, cream and whole grain mustard sauce. 2 huge bowls of homemade chunky chips plus dis of veg consisting of cabbage, cauliflower, new potatoes, carrots and broccoli. Cooked to perfection and accompanied with lovely wine and local ale. This place should be packed! We loved it and will make a special trip out to try again and bring the family. Thank you

Table of 9 for a Birthday party. Service was good, meals were good (especially for the price).

All round good night for a party/ Group booking.

Home cooked, large portions and presented well.

Always recommended the White Lion and on the last visit was with a friend out of the area. Although the food was excellent As always, the restaurant was so cold we kept our coats on and sat by the radiator. The card machine was broken so we had to scrabble to get our money together. We were the only people in there. Have given 4 stars beccause food was good, but the service on a Thursday, not to the same standard as the weekend.

What a lovey friendly pub, we used this place a few times while we stayed in the area, the staff were very professional and extremely friendly they went out of their way to accommodate our needs, we had a great New Year’s Day meal and the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. We will definitely use this pub again. Thank you!
