Welcome to the White Lion, Wheatacre
Reviewed by the Eastern Daily Press as a venue in deepest South Norfolk “worth seeking out”, Wheatacre White Lion is set within 2 acres of idyllic countryside. Near Beccles, it is only a short distance to the Norfolk Broads and the bustling seaside towns of Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth. The City of Norwich is also just 20 miles away.
A visit to the bar will provide refreshment in equal measure to both the weary rambler and the most discerning wine connoisseur. We are also proud to be a Freehouse as it ensures that we can focus on seeking out and serving the finest ales and food from fine local independent suppliers. Wherever possible, we use seasonal produce sourced locally, whilst supporting Fair Trade and Rainforest Alliance products. We purchase our meat from our butcher from Harleston .
The food is inspired by our surroundings and as such draws heavily from the sea and our countryside setting. Our Chef emphasises quality and authenticity at the heart of his open farmhouse kitchen.
The White Lion has been described by critics and customers alike as a posh pub at realistic prices in “a home away from home” setting. The roaring log fire and the blend of contemporary, yet traditional decor invoke a warm and comfortable dining experience within a beautiful listed Georgian Building. Our Motto is simple “Great Food, Great Service, Great Atmosphere.”
We also offer 4 luxury period bed and breakfast rooms for the special stay. A caravan and camping site is available and we can cater for weddings, events and private and corporate hire. Disabled access and facilities are available at the premises.
