The White Lion has lovely views over the river and has a very local feel. It isn't a gastro pub with plush furnishings but it's very welcoming with great food at a very good price.

The scampi was great and the Herefordshire beefburger likewise Nice beer selection and the location next to the River Wye is fabulous-although we were there in November and it was chilly
