4 star ratingPleasant place to eat A friend and I had lunch here last week and really enjoyed our meal. The food was served attractively and piping hot, there was a bit of a wait but this is because the food is freshly cooked, the waitress did explain this. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. Not the cheapest place to eat but you get what you pay for.

5 star ratingA great atmosphere and very good food. We visited the Golden Lion with a friend who recommended it.

We were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome, loved the WW2 pictures around the walls and found the staff to be very friendly.

Although the menu was not extensive, I think that it is often better to offer few choices that are cooked well rather than have a large menu that can sometimes be a disappointment.

My friends both chose a steak and I opted for the duck breast which was served with fresh vegetables and a very tasty gravy.

There were only 4 desserts on offer but again, they were all well received.

We all agreed that the meal was superb (in fact the best I had eaten in a pub for a while) and resolved to return.

5 star ratingExcellent local pub, fab food lovely staff well worth a visit we loved it We booked an early table pre cinema ticket, the staff were lovely and checked if we had any special requirements before we arrived, eg disabled access whether we would have dogs with us and then if we had any special dietary requirements. The staff were welcoming and the food and service excellent , the complimentary bread and amouse bouche were much appreciated, followed by some of the best pub food we've ever eaten, will definetely head back

5 star ratingWhat a wonderful birthday I have visited this pub on and off for, well, a long time. This visit was to celebrelate a significant birthday. Meetings and correspondence with Sonny were fantastic. Reassuring and guiding. The choices of finger buffet food were brilliant. The taste and quality of the food produced were amazing. Very little was left! The staff were attentive, friendly and caring. All in all, we are definitely going back. Definitely exploring the menu and definitely letting our friends know if this wonderful, historic and marvellous public house.

5 star ratingExceptional wedding reception This public house and restaurant is extraordinary; our wedding reception was unbelievably good, and the food and hospitality were just off the chart amazing. Could not wish for nicer people. Can’t wait to get back there, it’s been too long! Simply some of the best food you’ll ever have. Sonny Goldring, the head chef leads with impeccable attention to detail and taste for presentation that is matchless. Only sorry we can’t visit more often.

5 star ratingLovely food and very friendly welcome We thoroughly enjoyed our evening despite booking the wrong Golden Lion (beware when booking as it appears to happen a lot!) but the staff were very friendly and accommodating despite being fully booked with a large party. Menu is reasonably short but that is because the food is fresh and they augment with specials. As a coeliac they ran through the gluten free options for me and could accommodate most of the menu items. The food was tasty and the posset was delicious.
