A stylish but tasteful space for all your eventing needs…

Our Function Room is capable of hosting a variety of events such as Wedding Receptions, Corporate Events, Family Parties, Birthdays, Christenings, Funerals and much more. Recently refurbished and finished to a high standard with it’s own Private Bar and bathrooms, our Function Room boasts a stylish space which provides the perfect back-drop for all your events.

Our Function Room has a seated capacity of up to 42 people and a standing capacity of approximately 50 people. With four keg taps, fine wine selection and an array of craft Gins available behind the bar – as well as a HD sound system - our Function Room can provide the perfect space for your milestone birthday or celebration. The versatile room will also be a tasteful, modest setting to host a family funeral, where we can serve hot and cold food buffets. We can also provide flowers sourced from wonderful local suppliers to add a splash of colour to proceedings. If Corporate Events are something more of interest, our Function Room can provide the ideal spot for a company meeting or gathering. We have a ten-foot HD projector offering a quality display for important information, presentations, photograph montages, slideshows and more.

Function Buffets and Dining…

At The White Lion we believe in giving our customers what they want. That is why we offer a bespoke service when it comes to Buffets and Dining in our Function Room.

The White Lion can offer an excellent array of food choices as well as our main menu which can also be ordered for Function Events. If you had something distinct in mind, we have had tremendous success and joy by offering our guests the option to build their own menu for their special day. We find this a perfect way to truly let our guests have things their way.

To add a personal touch to your event, set up a meeting with our management team to discuss a bespoke menu tailored just for you by our talented kitchen team. This means we can offer buffets and dining experiences for all budgets and requirements whilst guaranteeing our guests get exactly what they were looking for. Whether you’d like canapés on arrival, a delectable spread of hot buffet options ranging from Beef Wellington to our popular homemade traditional curries, a crafted Seafood Platter of sustainably sourced fish or something simple like a Yorkshire Ploughman’s Sandwich Board with dressed salads – our Function Dining can cater for all requirements. Let’s not forget our incredibly popular homemade dessert towers and sharing platters. You decide what you want and we will make it.

And of course, if you don’t want the trouble – leave everything to us and we will make sure you have an event to remember.

All of our food is homemade right here in our kitchen and our ingredients are sourced from local, quality suppliers. We offer a range of vegetarian and vegan dishes and offerings as well! We just want to show off the very best of Yorkshire produce in a luxurious Yorkshire setting.
