"Our second visit, what a gem."
We stopped as a group of cyclists for two nights,it is an ideal location for cyclists with all types of terrain on largely traffic free roads. There is a secure area for bike storage.IfI might make a suggestion, I am sure they could attract more cycling clientele if advertising was undertaken in the appropriate journals & websites ie Cycling Weekly, Cycling UK (Cycle magazine) Read less

we found yolanda & chris to be the perfect hosts,as in being very friendly & helpful. as indeed were all the staff. the food was spot on for the two dinners we booked in for.
Dislikes:
the downside about our bedroom as stated above was that it's directly above the bar & pool table. which unfortunately meant that every time a new game started & the balls were released we heard them d

Room has been refurbished, could do with a full length mirror for the ladies and a dressing table for make up.
Response from The White Lion Inn:
Hello and thank you for your kind review. We have noted that even though the room has a mirror, drawers and bed side table, it doesn't have a full length mirror and as you rightly say a separate dressing table. In view of this and because we want our guests to be totally happy with their room, we are in the process of purchasing these items to enhance the room further. Many thanks and best wishes Yolanda and chris

In January 2014 The White Lion Inn underwent a total refurbishment to the exterior and interior building providing a rustic and cosy atmosphere in beautiful surroundings.
At The White Lion Inn we have eight centrally heated en-suite rooms comprising of five doubles, one twin, one family room and one single, all decorated and furnished to a high standard with double glazed windows. Each room is equipped with a colour flat screen television, tea and coffee making facilities, WiFi Internet access and hairdryer. Children are welcome and a cot and high chair can be provided upon request.
We provide a good hearty breakfast with lunch and evening meals also being available. Our dishes are all made from locally sourced ingredients whenever possible and we have several vegetarian options available. Special dietary requests can be catered for with prior notice. We have a delicious selection of fine wines from all over the world to compliment our traditional ales and ciders.
In warmer weather you can enjoy a drink or meal in our country garden which sits next to the brook or on our new patio area to the front. Dogs are welcome in the bar and garden areas.
We also boast a resident Magician. Chris entertains locals and diners alike with his wit and close-up Magic, making the evening that bit more special. Chris is also available for bookings – holding the British Close- up Championship Award 2012.
Our facilities included a function room with dance floor available for private hire, accessible toilets, bar and comfortable seating areas, restaurant and outside facilities. Eight en-suite rooms, parking and bicycle facilities, dog walking areas and a five minute walk takes you to an excellent park for younger children. We have a village shop and travelling to Oakham and Melton Mowbray Towns takes about 15 minutes. The bus stops right outside the pub if you don’t want to drive and Rutland Water Nature Reserve and sailing lake is only 15 minutes from the pub.
Environmental Statement
Pets are welcome in only two of our bedrooms. Please contact us direct to arrange this. There is a £10.00 charge..
