5 star ratingGreat little gem Fantastic stop over. Greg and the staff were really friendly and attentive with nothing too much trouble. We had lunch and Evening meals, both of which were superb and full compliments are due to the team. Good selection of real ales and “Old Dick” is the one to try. Next door to Southwick brewery for a quick top up and fasinating museum. Well worth a return visit either as a stop over or passing by. Great history as an operations room for WWII.

5 star rating70th Birthday Celebrations My parents used to regularly frequent this pub before they moved over 3 hours drive away. We decided to arrange a surprise party for my Dad on his 70th birthday, with local friends & family. In all there were probably 62 guests in the 2 restaurant/lounge areas. I exchanged regular emails with Sonny in the lead up to the party, to discuss the buffet & other ideas. Greg helped with the surprise & read aloud a fantastic limerick a friend had written. The buffet was delicious, all home-made or locally sourced & everyone commented on how good it was. Thank you to Greg, Sonny & the whole team at the Golden Lion for making my Dad's birthday one to remember! We will definitely be back when visiting family/friends.

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.

5 star ratingBrilliant first Brit Stop! Thank you Greg and staff for making our stopover so welcoming. Loved the history in view of our next stop in Normandy for the 75th Anniversary. Hope your celebrations go well and hope to stay over again.

5 star ratingGreat place to stop & eat! I am working away on the south coast again, and have found this pub in the Britstop Book to stay in my motorhome, and to have great meals & drinks as well.

5 star ratingThis pub has it all We came for Sunday lunch, and were immediately impressed with the warm welcome we got from all of the staff.
The food was excellent. We both had the same. Incredibly light smoked mackerel fish cakes, followed by roast turkey parcels, with all the trimmings. The turkey was succulent, with cranberry stuffing in the middle, and wrapped in bacon. Plenty of vegetables, and roast potatoes as well.
Beers are local ales, and are very well kept. They also do a selection of unusual ciders. My wife had pear.
The bar itself is like a museum, with lots of mementoes of D-Day. It would be worth coming in June, when the whole village commemorates D-Day.
Out the back of the pub is the old brewhouse, which has been turned into a brewing museum, and shop. Here you can buy bottles of local ales at very reasonable prices.
