About Us

Visitors and local people have enjoyed the hospitality of the White Lion since the early 1800s. Many a tale could be told of events that have taken place in all its lifetime, including the time when Wordsworth was in our very bar as news arrived that Nelson had died at Trafalgar.

Time has, inevitably, changed the White Lion a little, but we believe only for the better. What has firmly stayed intact is the character and atmosphere of this historic country inn.

Ideal for walking, fishing and sailing. Friendly atmosphere, traditional beers, cosy en suite bedrooms, beautiful country scenery.

A number of our customers come in for a casual drink and end up staying overnight - often longer. You have a choice of seven bedrooms, five en suite bedrooms, all with colour TV and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast is quite a social gathering.

From 12 noon to 9pm, all year round, you can enjoy the most delicious food and the finest drinks, including a good choice of 'Real Ale'.
