Nice enough pub that is ok and if you can get a seat outside is a nice place to watch people come and go.

Will Larter left this review about White Lion Hotel

This 19th century town centre hotel has been opened out inside into a series of interconnected rooms, with archways rather than doors between. The bar is on the right upon entering, featuring four hand pumps. These included Jennings Cumberland Ale, Orkney Dark Island and a seasonal offering from Adnams, which was fine and not too expensive for a tourist area at £2.80 a pint. Tables were set up for dining, leaving nowhere that felt comfortable for just a drink. The music was playing at my least favourite volume: inescapable.

Paul Andrews left this review about White Lion Hotel

The beer here was absolutely terrible. The guest tasted of vinegar and the Jennings Cumberland was just stale. We left 4 half finished pints and walked out. There was no point complaining because the staff looked like they didn't care. Grumpy staff and bad expensive beer in any other country this would not be a sustainable business!
