Blackthorn _ left this review about The White Lion
A good sized pub with a lounge area at one end and a sports bar at the other. The lounge is cosy enough in a dated sort of way, with lightly patterned wall paper and some rather floral upholstery on the seating. It seems reasonably tidy and up together though, so it’s probably been refurbished more recently than you might expect going on the style.
There were three small gas fireplaces, each with a tiled surround, although none were in use on our visit and a large mirror. There was a plasma opposite the bar which seemed a little out of place, and the barmaid seemed interested in the Heston Blumenthal programme that was on which was a little distracting. The bar at the other end is a larger, open space dominated by a pool table. There is also a darts board.
The solitary beer on tap was Doom Bar. Ciders were Blackthorn, Scrumpy Jack and Bulmer’s Original. The pub was very quiet on a recent Tuesday evening. By the time we left at about 10:00, there was nobody else in there, so we left the barmaid to her TV programme.
