Don’t get to go often enough! Lovely food and very friendly staff. Comfortable surroundings. Enjoy going usually with my uncle. Went on his 91st birthday last year and he was made a fuss of by the staff. Can’t fault it

Went with a large group which is always difficult, and allowed for the slow service as the weather was snowy and probably not sure how many of us would turn up. The pub itself is nicely decorated and lots of charm with lots of smaller...More

Ray, I gave it 5 stars and said it was excellent. I agree with you as does my review. Are you confused with another review or reviewer. I have written 56 reviews. I suspect you sent this to the wrong person. D

...YES! We offer a choice of turkey, beef, lamb or a mix of all three! Scrumptious spuds, classic veggies and all the trimmings. Booking advised for a Sunday- when they're gone, they're gone!

Description
A cosy, traditional country pub with stunning grounds and al fresco dining area nestled in a quaint Cheshire village. We serve fresh food, including a children's menu, from 12pm-9pm and serve drinks from our varied bar selection until 11pm. Popular for good cask beers, good food and good people, The White Lion is the perfect pit-stop for a drink or a bite to eat. We cater for large parties and offer a buffet menu for guests to choose from, or simply pre-order from our delicious a-la-carte.
