5 star ratingCampervan Stopover Had a welcoming stopover in the camper van which we found on Brit stops. Couldn't have been more friendly to us. The pub itself was very nice too and historic. Although we didn't eat, from what we saw and smelt and going by the empty plates we would say it does pretty good food. Thank you for letting us stay and we hope to visit again soon.

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!

5 star ratingPerfect environment We had a table booked for 5 but it looked like we were going to be 1 short. We ordered and as our food arrived, our missing number arrived; the staff didn't blink, took his order and it was on the table before we had finished; With everything freshly prepared it meant they must have made it a priority without any request by us. Being D-Day, the pub had a number of veterans in and they were wonderful. Great atmosphere too as the village was getting ready for the 40s weekend. Landlord came and introduced himself and made us very welcome.
Delicious food.
