A retirement party was planned with use of the Garden Room and a buffet laid on for us. This newly renovated pub is very tastefully furnished. It was quite busy for a Wednesday night with tables taken up with diners in the other room. Leftover...More

Sadly I have to say this was one of the worst steaks (10 oz Rump - £14.95)) we have ever eaten, so full of sinew you could barely cut it. I know people may say that when you have rump you should not expect the...More

Took a walk through the abandoned quarry and around Helsby Hill to The White Lion. We did not need to book. The food was amazing which we chose from the specials board. Lots of choice and efficient service.

Not been here for years but it was really nice. Pleasant atmosphere and service and a bit different from the fayre churned out by the pub chains that do dominate the north west. We ate quite simply - Angus burger and chips for me, chicken...More

...YES! We offer a choice of turkey, beef, lamb or a mix of all three! Scrumptious spuds, classic veggies and all the trimmings. Booking advised for a Sunday- when they're gone, they're gone!

A cosy, traditional country pub with stunning grounds and al fresco dining area nestled in a quaint Cheshire village. We serve fresh food, including a children's menu, from 12pm-9pm and serve drinks from our varied bar selection until 11pm. Popular for good cask beers, good food and good people, The White Lion is the perfect pit-stop for a drink or a bite to eat. We cater for large parties and offer a buffet menu for guests to choose from, or simply pre-order from our delicious a-la-carte.
