Review on The White Lion
Located in the market town of Bingham, just nine miles east of Nottingham, The White Lion is the sister pub to the award winning Ruddington Arms, the brainchild of chef Mark Anderson whose CV includes critically acclaimed chefs such as Terry Laybourne, Michel Roux and Gordon Ramsay. The pub has been sympathetically restored whilst retaining some of its original features including the flagstone flooring. There's also a fantastic garden for al fresco dining and drinking, together with an outside pool table, all of which has proven very popular with guests.
The kitchen puts its trust in local farmers and producers for a crowd-pleasing menu that changes with the seasons. Among the small plates look for smoked salmon rillettes on toast with sweet pickled cucumber or honey and mustard glazed chorizo. When it comes to the sliders and taco section of the menu there's plenty of choice with the likes of pulled pork rib, pickled apple, English mustard and shredded cabbage or salt cod, guacamole, crθme fraiche and sweet chill shredded gem. Moving on you could choose a succulent steak from the grill or opt for a pub classic such as steak and kidney pudding served with creamed mashed potato and Savoy cabbage, or fish fans will enjoy the beer battered fish and chips with crushed minted peas, tartare sauce and lemon. Desserts are in the traditional mould with a sticky toffee pudding, salted caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream or Cambridge burnt cream with raisin cookies.
The wine list is a well sourced slate that keeps its prices in check.
