Set within a historic building dating back to the 17th century, The White Lion Hotel has been tastefully refurbished but still boasts an old-world charm. Located on Yate’s Church Road (only a short drive from Bristol city centre but also an ideal base for exploring the surrounding countryside and charming market towns), The White Lion attracts guests from far and wide as well as being a favourite among locals. The menu focuses on traditional British cuisine and on it you’ll find everything from beer-battered salmon bites and homemade scotch egg to mains like chicken, ham & leek pie, slow roasted ham served with two fried eggs and triple-cooked chips and black country pork (pork steak stuffed with black pudding and served with creamy mash, a honey & mustard sauce and vegetables). Whether it’s for a pub lunch or a three-course dinner, The White Lion Hotel is a popular choice. Book ahead to avoid disappointment!
Perfect, good range of gluten free options 😀 Fast service, good waiting staff and would definitely go again and recommend to others. Good value and good quality
Great atmosphere, food and value for money. If you've never tried a black rock steak, you're in for a treat. Will be returning again with family.
Excellent carvery, lovely staff. Good value for money. Definitely go again. Have recommended The White Lion to all my friends on Facebook. Near to my home.
This was the second time having a sunday carvery just as lovely as the first time. Every one really friendly. Really tasty with a lot of choice
Excellent helpful staff, very organised but friendly. Plenty of parking space (important for me) an excellent choice of carvery meats and one of the best selection of vegetables I have seen on a carvery. Roast beef perfectly cooked and melt-in-the-mouth- quite unusual theses days as most places seem to burn it to a boot leather texture. Would have scored 6 except meat portion 'not generous' at the price.
Great selection of gruten free food on the carvery, nice hot food and great service from staff. Will definetly recommend to others who suffer trying to find restruants to cater for gluten free.
After booking the B and B for a business trip I decided to book a table for myself in the restaurant as I thought it may be busy on 14th February. After a rather rude phone call questioning my booking for "only one person" I was told that there was a set valentines menu on that night. I didn't mind this. Anyway, the food was very overpriced, it was pretty bland and minimal for the £50 for two people menu. I had a guest join me in the end, and she found a rather large and hard item in her mashed potato. We complained to the waitress who was not apologetic but said she would pass the comment on - we didn't hear any more from her. (This experience was made much worse by the fact that my room was unclean and the bed clothes had various stains and hairs all over them!) Summary: Expensive, poor quality, unclean and unfriendly.
The service and surroundings were very good,the carvery looked good with good variety but unfortunately it was all a bit tasteless. Perhaps lack of seasoning in the veg but even the meat lacked flavour. It was a shame as we really wanted to like it!
Excellent customer service and the meal was lovely too. However would have rated 6 star rather than 5 due to no horseradish to accompany the roast beef
Ate the carvery, lovely choice of vegetables and all piping hot. Good choice of desserts, well presented. Staff all very pleasant and helpful. Will be back.
