The White Lion is a great pub – and it does a good Sunday roast too.

We ended up there after a walk through Coundon Wedge.

The place was already busy but we managed to get a table pretty quickly.

Despite being quite big it still retains a cosy homely feel.

There was a good selection of ales on tap and we all went for the award-winning Ruby Mild. It was dark, exotic, moreish and a worthy winner at The Great British Beer Festival, 2009.

To eat I had the roast beef while my two partners opted for the goats’ cheese and chestnut Wellington. They cost about £7 each.

We told the waitress we were in a hurry and all three meals arrived within five minutes.

The beef was well cooked and the vegetables were gorgeous. My Yorkshire pudding was a minor let down as it was a bit small and slightly soggy. A forkful of the Wellington proved rich, tangy and delicious.

Although I couldn’t handle dessert my two dining partners couldn’t resist.

They ordered a sticky toffee pudding with dates and a fresh fruit jelly. Both were stunning and cost about £4.
