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 ratingSunday Roast A lovely roast dinner in a very old traditional pub that has world War 2 history attached to it.
It also has a brewhouse next door which is an added bonus.
Great food and friendly staff at a reasonable price.
We'll definitely go back again.

5 star ratingHidden Gem! We've often had drinks at the Golden Lion and have been very envious at the food coming out of the kitchen so we took the plunge with a full 3 course meal and Wow! Just brilliant, can't speak highly enough of the food and service. Very friendly staff and a great range of beers, we'll definitely be returning - thanks guys 🙂

5 star ratingFamily Meal We visited last night Easter weekend and fortunately had booked a table. The place was packed inside and out as it was a beautiful evening. The staff were very friendly and attentive offering tasters of the real ales on offer. The food from the venison steak fish pie and cod chips was served piping hot and was just delicious couldn't fault a thing. After our meal we went and sat in the smaller bar on very comfy sofas. The Golden Lion is a real gem tucked away in a beautuful village but so worth the effort.
