Liked the fact, you could choose a smaller plate size, on several dishes.👍. Food fabulous. Fixtures and fittings lovely, tasteful. A relaxing atmosphere. Craig the waiter was courteous, knowledgable and informative. Really enjoyed our 'spur of the moment, tea'. Thanks to all at the White Lion. We'll be back.....!

Not been here for years but it was really nice. Pleasant atmosphere and service and a bit different from the fayre churned out by the pub chains that do dominate the north west. We ate quite simply - Angus burger and chips for me, chicken Kiev for my wife followed by a trio of puddings to share. All home made,... More

Came over the bank holiday weekend after being recommended by a friend. Easy to find and very pretty. Car park very full but managed to find a space. The place looks like it's been done out recently and it's very tasteful and light if a little cramped in parts. Staff are young but friendly and smart. Menu was good, lots... More

I visited the White Lion recently with a group of friends! The customer service was second to none, Jack and Beth went the extra mile for us and made our meal a very enjoyable experience! I would definitely recommend this place.

We chose to go here for my husband's birthday meal. It was a Wednesday night at around 5pm. We walked in and was told there are plenty of seats so help yourself. We had a wonder threw the pub and there were half a dozen people eating. We found a seat and someone came and took out order. Meals came... More

Lovely meal and great service, decorated beautifully; much lighter than it used to be. Reasonably priced and I like the fact that they seem to have changed to table service.

Well run pub restaurant. Pleasantly surprised by overall value for money and quality if service. Ticks all the boxes for a model pub restaurant. Ambience , service, food quality and beers. The Chicken Kiev was delcicious. Even with the pressure of a full house service nothing was too much trouble. Will return.
