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.

    Always very good and attentive service. Menu has reduced a bit but still great choice and fab pizzas. Would prefer some more aromatic white wines. Great mid week deals and lovely front garden for sunny evenings.

    We had a really delicious meal here, I would recommend this. The staff were charming, just a tiny comment that the service was quite slow.

    We usually enjoy our visits to the White Lion (we even held our wedding dinner there). This time, however, was a disappointment. Service was slow and disinterested and food mediocre. Such a shame.
