5 star ratingSaturday lunch between Christmas and New Year. Traditional old English pub. Lovely friendly atmosphere, good selection of beers and ciders. The food is on the pricier side but it's very good and locally sourced I believe . We all had starters and cheese boards with our mains but we all left absolutely stuffed so I'd advise skipping either the starter or dessert. The fish and chips were spot on.

Highly recommended.

5 star ratingWish it was closer to home! Stayed overnight in the car park in our motorhome on Saturday night, having phoned first to check. What a fabulous place and a proper pub! Greg the landlord was friendly, helpful and gave us a brief history of the pub and the village. The food was wonderful and my partner enjoyed the local ales. I can't praise this pub enough - we will definitely be back before too long!

5 star ratingExcellent Food, Excellent Welcome, Excellent Beer. What a pleasure it was to visit this lovely historic public house and restaurant the other evening. The food was really good and equal to that of a high standard 'restaurant' . We know that we got value for money with both our food and drink. The staff were welcoming and charming and could not do enough for us and the Landlord was very entertaining. The selection of locally brewed beers was impressive and sampling before purchase was encouraged, however, I stuck to my regular Guinness, which was served exactly as it should be - in a very good condition.We will certainly be going back here again and again.

5 star ratingStayed overnight in our Motorhome Stayed overnight in our Motorhome and Greg, who has a Motorhome himself, was tremendously welcoming. It’s a quiet area at the rear of the pub and we had a fantastic evening meal which fortunately we had booked the day before (full house on a Saturday night). Our starter of pigeon was beautifully presented, cooked perfectly and tasted excellent. My partner loved his steak and the chips were really good. The selection of local cheeses was great and was served with some interesting and tasty side dishes. As my favourite ice cream is ginger I had to try the honey and ginger ice cream and it didn’t disappoint. This is a gorgeous family run pub and we will definitely return.

5 star ratingTop host, historic D Day pub, an Top host, historic pub, an absolute must visit. We spoke to the boss Greg on the phone before visiting, he was most hospitable and we stayed over in the car park in our motorhome. There was a good choice of well kept ales, the barmaid gave me taster glasses of each. They were all good, I chose a 3.8 abv session ale. Wine wine the Australian Shiraz was excellent. The fish dishes were superbly cooked and delicious. We also enjoyed probably the best sandwiches at lunchtime that we’ve ever had. One of the best venues with excellent staff that we’ve been to. We loved the history and the D Day stories.

Cannot fault this place. We stopped off on our way to IOW, and would definitely make the detour to here again. Thank you!

5 star ratingFantastic! We were a group of 9 celebrating a birthday. Everyone of us loved the food. It truly was exceptional. Many pubs claim to have restaurant quality food at pub prices. The Golden Lion is finally somewhere that can meet that claim. Look forward to going again soon.
