    We really enjoy eating at the White Lion. Always made to feel most welcome. Food excellent.

    Nice place for family reunions.

    Easily the best curry I've had in years.

    We travel around a fair bit and visited friends in the area. The low prices had us doubting the quality of the food but it is out of this world. Never had a curry like it and we wish that we lived closer so we could visit more often. Can not recommend this place enough.

We say…

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 range of authentic, seasonal home-cooked dishes that exceed the level of traditional pub grub. The food consistently receives rave reviews and with trained chefs at the helm, this comes as no surprise. From light lunches to indulgent dinners, the Inn offers a host of British favourites such as homemade pies, tasty fish and chips and Sunday roasts with all the trimmings. Those with a sweet tooth will adore the delectable selection of cakes, delicate fancies and scones with plum jam and cream, all served with limitless pots or fresh tea or coffee. 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.
