If you look at my previous reviews of The White Lion they have always been of a very good expirience Again I am very pleased to say even in these most trying of times The White Lion rose to the Challenge, as we didn't book and have never done in the past I thought we might not be able to have dinner there, but The Staff were wonderful and acomodated all Six of us, Track and Trace had to be done but none of us minded that and accept this is now the new normal for the time being. Never in all the Twenty odd years we have been coming here as a Family or with Friends have we ever had a bad meal or bad service, we shall continue to visit The White Lion when in the area and for my parents who live in Newtown this hopefully will be more often. WELL DONE TO YOU ALL !!
