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 ratingGreat food well executed and delicious We visited with friends and from the moment we walked into the building we felt comfortable and very welcome. Friendly knowledgable waitress was very helpful. Our table was laid and ready for us to be seated. Between us we had a good assortment of food from the menu including an amuse busch, starters, Mains and a cheeseboard each to finish. Cheeseboard has to be ordered at the start of the meal to allow the cheeses to reach the optimum temperature to consume. Everything was extremely well cooked and presented. With all ingredients sourced locally the food is truly delicious. It is not the run of the mill menu and there are a number of pleasant suprises on the menu including seaweed ( not the shredded cabbage that Chinese restaurants pass as seaweed) samphire, locally sourced meat fish and vegetables.The wine menu compliments the food wonderfully. with wines, champagnes and local craft beers amongst the choices. We will certainly be back soon to sample more of the wonderful food on this menu.This is certainly more than common pub grub.

5 star ratingLunchtime Visit - Fabulous! Excellent Lunchtime Menu & Food. Friendly & attentive staff , all following COVID guidelines. Nothing was too much trouble. Highly Recommended 5*


5 star ratingLovely Lunch We called in for lunch on the way home from Portsmouth. We have stopped in in the past, but only for drinks. The Covid situation means everything is a little different, but the staff are doing what they can to keep things as normal as possible. Due to the need for extra space between customers there are only a few tables in the bar area, but there is now a large marquee outside with ample tables. We had a small ploughman's, tandoori chicken sandwich and a small/children's burger for food, all if which were really tasty. The XXX dark pale ale was very nice too. Yes things took a bit longer than normal, but the food was very nice and the staff were engaging, chatty and friendly. Personally I'd much rather be supporting a local independent pub than one of the huge pub chains, especially when it's a pub as good as this one.

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.

4 star ratingA good lunch at a historic pub with D-Day links The Golden Lion coped well with serving lunch on a busy Saturday when there were a number of weddings in the village church, and one wedding reception in the pub itself.

We managed to book, and service was surprisingly quick and friendly, given the very large number of wedding guests in the pub. A fine selection of beers on draught, and a pleasant atmosphere (with historic D-Day links, in a picturesque village). Plenty of parking in the pub car park or in the village high street. Leek, shiitake mushroom and ricotta tart (veggie option) was very good; fish and chips was well-presented, but “good” rather than “gourmet”. The main feature of the dessert menu is an excellent selection of ice creams and local cheeses. Yum.

Well recommended. Return visit likely!
