The beers in the White Lion are mainly from Milton (there are eight hand pumps and a bottle list of around twenty assorted beers) but the real draw is the cider and perry list, with 20 or more chalked up on a board and listed by area. The list also includes a couple of meads. It was interesting to note the very different character of the regional ciders. For Norfolk cider the “medium” tasted sweet and the “very dry” merely dry-ish whereas, because the apples are different, West Country ciders classified as “very dry” would be mouth-puckeringly so. The pub doesn’t look particularly old but I imagine it probably is. It has low ceilings, exposed beams and quarry tiles on the floor. It’s “over the water” (i.e. north of the river) and mainly a locals’ place. If I lived locally I’d probably pop in every now and then for one of their cider and onion sausage rolls - they were delicious! (Visited 3 August 2015).

I really like this place. It has recently undergone a management shift and things are certainly promising. It’s still connected to the Cambridgeshire-based Milton brewery, offering a good selection of the brewery’s beers as well as a few handpumps dedicated to guests. On my visits the beers have always been in impeccable condition. The bottle range is fairly small but should cater to all tastes. Numerous ciders are always available, with one of the best ranges in the area. The new managers seem knowledgeable about their products and service is faultless, friendly and welcoming. Atmosphere has always been pleasant and unassuming, like the decor. It’s certainly one I intend to visit more this year and possibly sample the food menu which, to date, I haven’t. One to check out if you’re in the area; you can’t go far wrong.
