This delightful inn situated in the centre of historic Bridgnorth and provides traditional real ales along with great pub food.

Very good for fishermen, rooms clean and tidy, the price reflects the accommodation. Bit tight getting car in car park at back. Excellent breakfast. All in all not bad, if your looking for a romantic w/e try the Parlors Hall. marks out of ten 7. (Eddie & Chris, anglers)

My sisters and I stayed at the White Lion during early July 2003 and have to say that the service was appalling. The manager there (who was apparently renting the place) was surly and rude and at one point refused to change our meal when we found that it was still partly frozen. The bedroom was filthy and hadn't been cleaned, nor were the towels clean, and someone vandalised our car outside. We often stay at country pubs but this has to be the worst in some years, sadly. I'm afraid to say we would never stay there again. (Sally Tibble - 2003)
