A little pub history
Originally a family home and then a shop, The White Lion was a fully licensed pub restaurant by 1835. Before this the village shop sold local beer, but it was forbidden to drink on the premises, so the farmers drank their beer in a hedge down the lane. The White Lion now welcomes guests to join us in comfortable surroundings to relax and unwind.
Make a day of it
