This is a restaurant review, not for an overnight stay. Popular pub opposite the church in a small village with good local walks. A range of home cooked pies and croque monsieur's along with a smaller range of salads and other dishes, and a focus on main courses - one starter and no desserts. All comes with chips - again...

I was due to stay here but due to an unexpected family illness i couldnt stay. I also didnt get a chance to cancel as my focus was elsewhere. I fully accept that the hotel needs to make sure I pay for the room as a failed to show but what is unacceptable is them hassling my family on a...

We are sorry you felt we were hassling your family on a daily basis, this was not the case.You had failed to show up for your booking, and all we had done was call you on the Thursday and the Saturday after, but to no avail. We had no idea of the circumstances as you had not responded to the...

We stayed at the hotel for one night to see a live band. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and comfortable. The atmosphere in the bar at night was great. It is only 5 minutes walk from the station with regular service to Birmingham if you don't want to drive. And the breakfast was excellent.

We had booked for three people for Sunday Lunch at the restaurant and it was disappointing that no record of our booking could be found.There was no apology and whilst tables were available it was necessary for our waitress to check with the chef before we were seated at a table by the door.The bar had some good beers and...

If you are looking for a good old country pub with restaurant this fits the bill adequately. Great couple run the place. The Sunday lunch was excellent and service good and friendly. It is very popular with the locals which possibly speaks volumes.

The food was stodge and the restaurant a cold empty area. The food was very ordinary and strange substitutes made in the menu - like white chocolate for sultanas in Bread and Butter pudding. Choose another pub to eat

We are truly sorry you did not enjoy yourself,but,even more sorry you did not make your feelings known in person at the time,when we could have discussed your views,and possibly provided something more to your liking. Perhaps it would be more appropriate to say that our menu did not suit your tastes or requirements Kind regards Chris Roach The White...

The perfect location for the Genting Arena being £6 by Uber away and one train stop from the venue. This whole place has a wonderfully quaint feel, with excellent food, a warm welcome and owners who clearly care a lot about the place, the locals and your experience. This was the best hotel we have stayed in during 2016! The...

Just come back from our stay at The White Lion. Arrived at 2.15 on a cold November Saturday. Glad to get into the warmth of the pub. We were shown to our room number 1. The room was freezing! When i asked a member of staff, i was informed the heating went on at 4 or there abouts. I think...

We were in the annex which came as a surprise as we hoped to have a room in the pub as we booked months in advance. The bedroom was extremely small and full of so much furniture we had trouble moving around the room. On a plus side the twin beds were very comfortable. The ensuite had a shower, clean...

Sorry you were disappointed with the location of your room,but rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis, we only have two twin rooms available. The towel issue I sincerely apologise for, our laundry company had delivered extra bath mats not hand towels that week !!! No excuse I know,just an explanation. The furniture issue,I think is subjective....

One of the worst experience of my life!... The bed was the most uncomfortable I have seen in my life. There was a lot of noise in the room from a ventilator outside on the wall.
