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

About Us

The White Lion is a traditional 17th-century pub with accommodation which has been recently converted from our former coach house and stables. We are located in the heart of Soberton village which is quintessentially English, an Area of Outstanding Beauty, and within the South Downs National Park.

This is the perfect place to stay, unwind and relax after a day walking, cycling or enjoying the many delights of Hampshire.

Our accommodation consists of two double rooms with king-size beds, and one family room/suite, each offering “luxury in the country”. All are well-appointed rooms, each offering a high standard of decoration with luxury fabrics and accessories. The rooms are all fully equipped with en-suite bathrooms, heating, flat-screen television, hairdryer, ironing facilities and a refreshment tray.

For breakfast, our guests are offered a choice of cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurt. This is then followed by a choice of either a Full English Breakfast or two lighter options including a vegetarian choice. If you still have room: finish with toast and preserves and an endless supply of tea and coffee.

We have a reputation for delicious locally sourced food and popular local real Ales from the Bowman Brewery in Wallops Wood. We offer a daily menu and a specials menu in both our restaurant or bar area. We allow dogs in the bar, but not in the restaurant.

This atmospheric old pub still retains its open fires and wood-burning stoves, wooden floors and a very warm welcome.
The White Lion at Soberton is an excellent base for a rural break with an abundance of walking on the doorstep. However, with the nearby links to the M27 and M3 it is also the perfect base to visit Portsmouth, and its harbour which is home to some famous ships, and the waterfront area which is dominated by the Spinnaker Tower. Southampton which is a major port and the closest city to the New Forest, or Winchester England`s ancient capital, all are within a 30 minute drive.

Thank you & see you all soon

Brilliant visit for a relaxing getaway! Stayed for two nights over New Year. Staff were friendly, room was really nice with a comfy bed as well as tea/coffee etc. Beautiful setting in an idyllic pub. The food was lovely, very reasonably priced and just what you want from a country pub! You cannot help but relax here. I would definitely visit again.

Works Christmas Meal & Drinks Fantastic Christmas food and atmosphere, highly recommend this place for any occasion. We've returned for Christmas drinks too and they were very accomodating as we didn't book.

Simply praise - and thanks The highlight of a lunchtime visit has to be the food. From a sensible number of menu choices, each with an interesting 'twist', our meals had to be amongst the best we have had at a pub. Well prepared, beautifully presented and delicious. Congratulations to all involved. Welcomed by attentive and friendly staff, log fires added to the ambiance in the separate restaurant area. Though not local to us, we shall certainly return.

Super friendly waiting staff and fab food We called in without a booking and it looked busy. But we were immediately accommodated without fuss. Service was prompt, very friendly and personal. We were made to feel special and welcome. All our dishes were excellent and gluten free meals were readily available. The surroundings were cosy and traditional. I can heartily recommend a meal at this pub!

A great stay Coming in from the US, my wife and I spent three nights at the beginning our our South Downs Way walk to ensure we had time to get our day 2 tests completed properly. Mark and his staff have done a fantastic job keeping this inn operating at a very high level during all of this difficult period. My many thanks to them all and highly recommended!

Great rural pub The room appeared fairly recently decorated and was a comfortable bed with a really good shower en suite. Staff were friendly and professional as at times. Food at breakfast & evening were really good. No dedicated car park but whilst we were there little problem parking on the road or lane alongside the pub.

Wonderful Stayed the night just ahead of our cruise - and loved it! Slightly off the beaten track, but worth finding - and not really too far away from Southampton. Rooms in the converted stable block are unique, super clean and comfortable. Food (both dinner and breakfast) was wonderful. A nice welcome and friendly staff made this a night to remember.
