5 star ratingLovely evening and delicious food Went here for our wedding anniversary meal, and couldn’t fault it at all.
The welcome we received was friendly, there was a great atmosphere and the staff had decorated our table with table confetti.
The food was faultless, and the waitresses were very friendly and attentive. We weren’t rushed at all, which was perfect for us as we don’t get to go out together a lot so it’s good to make an evening of it.
Will definitely be returning- thank you 🙂

5 star ratingStayed overnight in our Motorhome Stayed overnight in our Motorhome and Greg, who has a Motorhome himself, was tremendously welcoming. It’s a quiet area at the rear of the pub and we had a fantastic evening meal which fortunately we had booked the day before (full house on a Saturday night). Our starter of pigeon was beautifully presented, cooked perfectly and tasted excellent. My partner loved his steak and the chips were really good. The selection of local cheeses was great and was served with some interesting and tasty side dishes. As my favourite ice cream is ginger I had to try the honey and ginger ice cream and it didn’t disappoint. This is a gorgeous family run pub and we will definitely return.

All Covid precautions being observed which was also comforting Highly Recommended


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.

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 ratingA great atmosphere and very good food. We visited the Golden Lion with a friend who recommended it.

We were not disappointed. We received a very warm welcome, loved the WW2 pictures around the walls and found the staff to be very friendly.

Although the menu was not extensive, I think that it is often better to offer few choices that are cooked well rather than have a large menu that can sometimes be a disappointment.

My friends both chose a steak and I opted for the duck breast which was served with fresh vegetables and a very tasty gravy.

There were only 4 desserts on offer but again, they were all well received.

We all agreed that the meal was superb (in fact the best I had eaten in a pub for a while) and resolved to return.
