"Slow down and enjoy life, it's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why."

Eddie Cantor

The White Lion is an old coaching inn established circa 1611.  The inn lies at the centre of the historic and picturesque village of Wherwell located in the beautiful Test Valley deep in the heart of rural Hampshire.

Wherwell is situated close to many major historic towns and cities, and offers access to places of interest, countryside walks, fishing and field sports.

We are just a 7 minute drive from the beautiful town of Stockbridge and to Andover in the other direction.  Winchester is 15 minutes by car.  Being a short distance to the A303/A34 and only about an hour by road or rail to London we are a convenient place for people to “Meet in the Middle”.
