Restaurant description

A quintessentially British pub and hotel in Tenterden, The White Lion offers refined, modern gastro-pub dining alongside an impressively-stocked bar selection. A traditional, whitewashed brick façade looks out over a canopied al fresco area and houses a renovated interior.

Diverse offerings on The White Lion menu include tender slow-cooked pork belly, with pork, sage and apple faggots and creamed potato, and crowd-pleasing pub favourites like Lionheart Ale-battered fish with thick-cut chips and mushy peas. A melt-in-the-mouth 20oz chateaubriand is among signature charcoal-oven steaks, while there’s also a lengthy selection of hand-crafted pizzas. Available for takeaway, toppings include jerk chicken, bacon and brie and spicy prawn.

The White Lion also offers a children’s menu and half-sized pizzas, while drinks range from hearty British cask ales to eclectic French and New World wines and classy classic cocktails. The White Lion restaurant interior is a quirky mix of traditional oak beams, chunky wood tables and vibrant, contemporary colour combinations.

The White Lion sits on the High Street in the picturesque Tenterden town.

    Really lovely pub and very accommodating for our 2 young children. Extensive menu and good value. We thoroughly enjoyed the roast pork and the kids meal was great too.

    A nice restaurant and bar but the food was tasteless and the service in the restaurant was very poor. We were ignored when we arrived, eventual service was slow and indifferent and then the server forgot to return our change after we had paid and had to be asked to bring it.

    Most of the menu was not available. The food we had ordered came cold.

    Birthday meal recently, the staff were very patient with my elderly parents who can be quiet challenging. I enjoyed the half pizza / half salad option which is a good idea.

    The staff were excellent, friendly and the food was great, the scotch egg starter was amazing, the chicken parcel was very tasty, wine excellent choice, NZ Sauvignon by the glass is unusual. Highly recommend.

    Staff were very friendly, I had a pizza which was really nice. My partner had The sea bream, she loved the fish how ever thought the beans could have been more flavoursome, maybe a light sauce running through... The triple cooked chips were delicious
