The food was good, menu average, but the service leaves a lot to be desired. We were a group of 8, it wasn't very busy and early evening but took an hour before starters arrived!

Always enjoy visiting here, the staff are very friendly and helpful with good choice of drink and wines. Over the years the menu has changed and we do find it is a bit limited for choice at the moment. But went last week on Valentines night and both chose a steak, we were not disappointed both were cooked to perfection... More

Came here for a meal with friends. The food is first class, yet to have a bad meal but a little pricey. You get what you pay for. To me this us a local pub with lots and lots of atmosphere, never any trouble but the prices of the drinks tends to keep trouble away. This has to be the... More

Popped in for a drink and something to eat. The surroundings are lovely, the staff really friendly and helpful and the food was stunning. So good we had to have 3 courses. Very reasonably priced too. We went on a Wednesday which happened to be quiz night. Although we failed at that, it was good fun and the locals made... More

Call in regularly for Sunday lunch. Don't care too much for a stewed soggy veg. Well done beef dinner. The White Lion Sunday dinner is freshly cooked with beef that melts in your mouth. Best in town by far. The staff are very friendly too. Great dining experience. Thank you.

We were a party of around 15 people so we had to pre order our food which didn't bother me as it meant it was served as soon as we got there. The nachos are very nice and a good size to share between two people. For the main I had pie chips and veg which was delicious and the... More

The White Lion (also known locally as The Tophouse) is probably about the best cooked to order place to eat in worksop. Prices are reasonable and what you would expect from such a venue and quality of food. My parents eat here quite regularly and we go here when we fancy a meal out. We definitely recommend booking a table... More

Haven't visited for while, wonder if this establishment has new owners, no reviews for a few months. Called in for lunch today, Saturday lunchtime. Staff friendly enough. Was told only to sit in bar area, as tables set for Christmas meals, 30-40 mins wait on food as one party in. Several customers left without staying. Ordered food, from a very... More

I love the steak here! Friendly staff and a great beer selection. Car park spaces are on the small side but that can't be helped, and it certainly won't stop me going!
