Visited the pub today for lunch. The weather was beautiful so the setting (which is alongside the river) was tranquil and very picturesque. We arrived at midday when they opened so we had the pick of the tables. I ordered the whitebait and my wife had the ham and chips. Both dishes were vast tasty and were delivered expeditiously to...

My fiance and I visited on a Sunday after being recommended the place by our hotelier . We booked a table for dinner. Prior to dining here, we looked at their menu on their website. They appeared to have a varied menu. We arrived just after 8 pm. It was not busy. We were handed a menu with a choice... More

This pub is right on the river Wye at Ross-on Wye. So, a lovely location, with a beer garden overlooking the river. It should be a spectacular pub with great food and facilities. We stayed one night whilst on a canoe trip. The room was clean, but tired. The pub itself felt in dire need of a makeover and was... More

Went for a Saturday lunch to meet parents half way between where we live. Had never tried the White Lion before so thought as it looked to be in a nice location we'd give it a go. The food was nice (standard pub grub, but plenty of it) and the waitresses were lovely and very polite. However, the barman barked... More

Highly disappointed with the service we had this evening. We arrived to find out that the card machine was broken in the bar so my friend went to the garage so we could get some money for food. I went up to the bar to get the menus for the barman to say that we might not be able to... More

Nice 'local' pub right on the bridge at the River Wye - a few minutes outside of the town. Sat here and watched the world go by, and the dogs swimming in the river. Excellent food - very large portions so good value for money. Riverbank area for kids to run around and dogs to play. Nice staff.
