A few weeks ago, on a Sunday, we wandered into The White Lion of Mortimer, a pub in Mitcham. For those who like more details, it’s located at 223 London Road.
It was in the afternoon and I was famished. Looking around, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to risk ordering food at this pub. The surroundings weren’t all that impressive.
However, the back part of the pub had a lot of tables and all of them were full. And everyone was eating. That made me feel somewhat better so I ordered the Sunday roast. I should note that the meals at this pub are pretty cheap, which may account for the business. There were lots of beer choices, however I can’t remember what beer I had. I think The Better Half just ordered a couple of lagers—nothing too exciting.
Our food arrived and I was surprised. I won’t say that it wowed me, but it was average. And there was a lot of it. If I was in the area again, I would pop in if I was hungry. However, I doubt I would seek this place out with the intention of having food. Unless I wanted something cheap and decent.
Overall, I give the pub a solid three stars out of five. Nothing great about it, but I didn’t run screaming from the joint vowing I would never return.
They may want to fix their window, since right now it says J. D. Wether poo, not Wetherspoon. I got a kick out of that. You may have to click on it to read it.
