5 star ratingFantastic! We have only ever popped in here for a quick drink in the past, but some friends took us here for dinner recently. We'll definitely be back again!

A very friendly welcome, great food and a lovely ambience, plus it's easy to park outside on the road.

5 star ratingDrove past this for years! Decided to call in for a pint Popped up to Southwick with a friend. Just had a pint, but we were captivated by the friendly atmosphere of the place!
There was a band on - nothing too noisy, just good quality jazz.
Had a long chat with the head chef, Sonny - resulting in a promise to return to sample the delights of his cooking

5 star ratingFriendly staff Excellent Food We stayed overnight in our Motorhome in Southwick and the welcome we received in the Golden Lion was excellent. Wide choice of real ales, ciders and good wine and our food was very very good with large portions. Best of all was the friendly and helpful staff. A place we will return to whenever in the area.

5 star ratingFriendly and attentive! Greg the owner is an amazing man! I called last minute to book a couple of tables in his heated and well ventilated marquee, we had the offer of hot water bottles and blankets in case we got chilly too. The bar staff were very friendly, attentive and kept our glasses topped up. The bar has a huge selection of diverse alcoholic beverages to suit all tastes and pockets! I completely recommend a trip to this pub. Make sure you call to book a table!

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 ratingLovely evening and delicious food Went here for our wedding anniversary meal, and couldn’t fault it at all.
The welcome we received was friendly, there was a great atmosphere and the staff had decorated our table with table confetti.
The food was faultless, and the waitresses were very friendly and attentive. We weren’t rushed at all, which was perfect for us as we don’t get to go out together a lot so it’s good to make an evening of it.
Will definitely be returning- thank you 🙂
