The White Lion Soberton
S O B E R T O N
Traditional country pub in the beautiful Meon Valley, Hampshire

Welcome to
The White Lion

The White Lion is an independent traditional country pub in the beautiful Meon Valley, Hampshire, in the village of Soberton. We have developed a fantastic reputation for delicious locally-sourced food, and popular local Real Ales from Bowman Brewery in Wallops Wood which is just up the road from us.

To add to this, we have renovated our Grade II listed stables and coach house and turned them into accommodation to give you a fantastic offering of “luxury in the country”. The rooms are beautifully decorated, allowing guests to enjoy the ambience of the original architecture.

Thank you & see you all soon

Wonderful Lunch. I must give a shout out to the White Lion as this was one of the most satisfying meals I have had in a long time. We were staying locally for a few days away and ordered an Uber to take us there as it looked like limited parking. I had a wonderful pint of Goddens Gold a new beer for me. We both ordered the Hake new potatoes and Wild Garlic Sauce. It was great, cooked to perfection and the sauce was fantastic. I had the New Zealand Te Onepoto and a great sauvignon blanc it was. We both had Creme Brule with a Rhubarb compote in the base again something completely new to me as I usually like "traditional" Creme Brule, fantastic I will try it at home. A few more drinks and I tried to order an Uber to take us back, but after 20 minutes they cancelled the ride. I asked the landlord if there was a local taxis service he asked where we were going and told us not to worry he would get one of the staff to take us. What more could you ask for great food, drinks, service and hospitality. Thank you very much.

A country gem. Good variety on the menus although they couple do more for vegetarians. Nice dining rooms and beer garden, as well as a covered terrace for days that don’t quite suit open air drinking or dining. We had light lunches on a sunny Saturday in the garden, a nice stopping place on a dog walk. Beautiful country side all around. Prices are reasonable and service is good. The White Lion has had its ups and downs in the last 25 years but seems to be more consistently on an up. Dog friendly.

Great food, friendly staff I’ve been twice in the last three weeks, with different family members, for lunch and for dinner. On both occasions, the food was superb and the service friendly and helpful. A good beer and wine selection . A traditional English pub, in a lovely village location. My vegetarian daughter had fancied the aubergine parmigiana, but it wasn’t on the menu. No problem, the chef managed to produce it anyway. We enjoyed our starters and mains. Tip: parking is limited, so arrive early and be ready to manoeuvre. Don’t bring a Winnebago or a Humvee.

Lovely relaxing stay Stayed for 1 night this weekend in the suite. Was a lovely stay. The room was lovely, very clean and beautifully decorated. The staff were ALL very friendly and welcoming. The food was lovely, both in the evening and breakfast. The cosy pub has a lovely atmosphere and is clearly very popular.

Consistently good. T so his was our fifth or so visit (it's many, many miles from home). Everthing I said before applies this time around so I won't repeat myself. But I will say that the standard is consistently good, the portion sizes excellent, the quality first-rate and there is no question of an added service charge (discretionary or otherwise). Additionally the menu changes, although I can't say how often. All in all a very decent little place indeed. We'd go more often were it closer.

Delicious Sunday lunch! 5 of us came for lunch on a Sunday, a mixture of roasts and pie was ordered - incredible pie and mash. Good reviews on the roast too. Lovely friendly staff. Couldn’t fault it.

Sunday roast Went for a Sunday roast with my wife. A lovely location. The service from the staff was impeccable. I have to say the roast pork I had with the trimmings was probably one of the best roasts I have had in a pub. Would definitely recommend and are already talking about when we are going to go back.
