5 star ratingWonderful meal We had a wonderful meal here on Friday evening. We hadn’t booked but were welcomed anyway and given a table. We were advised of the probable waiting time which was appreciated, and much better than being left to wait and get annoyed. Our food was delicious and served by a waitress who was attentive and cheerful and who obviously enjoyed her job. My smoked haddock was served with a delicious sauce. My husband’s steak was cooked to perfection. The cheeseboard was a real joy. Generous servings of local cheeses were accompanied by a range of tasty biscuits and garnishes. We will come back again. Highly recommended.

5 star ratingSunday Roast A lovely roast dinner in a very old traditional pub that has world War 2 history attached to it.
It also has a brewhouse next door which is an added bonus.
Great food and friendly staff at a reasonable price.
We'll definitely go back again.

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 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 ratingOne of the friendliest places From the moment we walked in the door we were welcomed like a regular (it was our first visit). We enquires about eating the garden and we’re shown as to where this was. It was very homely and warm.

The food was incredible , we were greeted with extra treats (compliments of the chef) and given great guidance with the menu. We had the fish and chips and a burger and it was delicious.

The service was excellent with polite chatter.

We will certainly be returning mainly times and telling everyone about our visit.
