The White Lion Inn is an Indian restaurant located in the picturesque village of Whissendine in the county of Rutland. Located just six miles from Rutland Water, The White Lion Inn is one of just two pubs in the village and has gained a reputation for serving exceptional Indian cuisine with friendly service.
This traditional looking pub blends in with the surrounding countryside perfectly with its white exterior and green signage. As you step inside you are greeted by a large, open plan bar and dining area. The exposed brickwork and original log burning fireplace add to the warmth of the venue. There is an additional dining room which offers guests a more formal dining experience. All the rooms are large and airy whilst maintaining a cosy atmosphere.
The menu offers guests a true taste of India. Rather than offering traditional pub grub, The White Lion serves up exquisite Indian cuisine that is a million miles from anything you will find in a curry house. The food consistently receives rave reviews and with two trained chefs at the helm, this comes as no surprise. You can expect to find classic dishes such as Rogan Josh, Kormas and onion bhaji’s, as well as unique dishes such as Soorma, a pork dish cooked with ginger, garlic, the Chefs own ground spice mix and cardamom pods served with homemade mint and green mango chutney. All dishes are prepared with passion, care and attention, making the dining experience at The White Lion Inn even more special.
One visit to The White Lion Inn and you will be wishing that it was your local. The friendly service, warm atmosphere and delicious food combine to make this a must-visit venue.
