5 star ratingThe "Golden Lion" is quaint & GREAT Visited here as part of a WW-II tour. They have many Local / Craft beers on Tap (a STEAM Brewery is next door).

I got in a Beer Conversation with the Owner Gary Clark, He took the time to show me their cooling / storage room as well as his procedures for pouring the local Beers.

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 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 ratingOutstanding pub with high quality of food Our welcome at The Golden Lion was very friendly - we hadn't booked for Sunday lunch but the landlord promised us that we shouldn't have to wait too long and he took the time to describe some different non-alcoholic beers. Outstanding and historic interior, friendly staff, good range of quality food, tasty vegetarian option, just such a pity that my roast turkey parcel was a bit dry and tough. Never mind, everything else was very good and I shall be back.

5 star ratingHidden Gem! We've often had drinks at the Golden Lion and have been very envious at the food coming out of the kitchen so we took the plunge with a full 3 course meal and Wow! Just brilliant, can't speak highly enough of the food and service. Very friendly staff and a great range of beers, we'll definitely be returning - thanks guys 🙂

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.

5 star ratingFamily event Tonight, we celebrated the life of my father. Sonny and his team catered the event at the D day memorial hall. We had a curry buffet and it was fantastic. From the initial consultation to the meal itself, sonny and his team were phenomenal. They were kind and generous, the food was absolutely wonderful. We simply cannot thank them enough.
