Henry Fielding put up here while writing Tom Jones, and the White Lion also played a booze-fuelled part in the Civil War, but fascinating as the history may be, the place is in tune with current trends. The interior works a cheerfully updated look in the Pepperpot Brasserie, blending black timbered walls with bare chunky oak tables. Food-wise, the deal is straightforward combinations and big-hearted flavours: seared scallops come with an onion bhaji in minted yogurt dressing, ahead of a hearty plate of chicken breast with a potato pancake and roasted and puréed shallots in thyme jus. White chocolate and blueberry millefeuille is a properly indulgent dessert.
