"Curiously I stopped going to the Whtie Lion since the beer was nowhere near as good as the Cross - which has now improved after a brief dip last year. I'll try it again though but the diddle de dee music is not for everyone!"

"The White Lion was refurbished in the last year by Thwaites, who took it as a tenanted house from Enterprise Inns almost a year ago.
Ths refurb has done a lot to brighten the place up and it is a nice friendly pub to visit for a good pint of beer (Thwaites real ales all kept well, and very quoffable!) and a bite of good value homemade food.
They still feature a great 'Irish'/folk 'jam' session on Tuesday nights.
It looks like the new landlords (Brenda & Mike, I think) will be taking this place to new heights of popularity as they settle in (at the time of writing they were only in a week!), but at last seems the White Lion, Heptonstall is all set for a long overdue increase in popularity... especially as the Cross (50 meters down the road) has taken a turn for the worse in recent times.
Well worth a visit...and may soon be offering B&B too apparently - so if the lovely, quaint old village of Heptonstall 'invites' you stay for a night and have a proper look around it will make a perfect place to stay.
They views and walks around this area are fantastic."
