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.

4 star ratingAnother excellent meal at a favourite location of ours We took two friends along for their first visit and they loved it. The food is always well cooked and well presented. The staff were helpful and the only disappointment is that there is no wifi - but some may say that is a benefit. A good range of drinks and a friendly landlord who always seems to ask genuinely how the meal went - we will certainly be returning.

5 star ratingGreat Father's Day lunch visit Enjoyed a great Father's Day Sunday Lunch at the historic Golden Lion in Southwick. Excellent food and nice friendly staff. The proprietor is very proud of his pub and his staff and took time to chat. Thoroughly recommend a visit here for a meal and the opportunity to see the part the pub played in the D-day build up in 1944.

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 ratingSuperb food & service from a proper landlord Booked with a late change for our microwedding reception.

Everything was perfect and we couldn’t be happier with the service provided. Being able to be in a room off the bar was fantastic and the team were excellent, professional and cheerful which stems from Greg being, as one friend put it ‘a proper landlard not just someone running a pub’

We’d been for a meal for my sisters birthday back in August, the food was superb then and yesterday, and our friends who hadn’t visited before said they will definitely be back.

5 star ratingWhat a wonderful birthday I have visited this pub on and off for, well, a long time. This visit was to celebrelate a significant birthday. Meetings and correspondence with Sonny were fantastic. Reassuring and guiding. The choices of finger buffet food were brilliant. The taste and quality of the food produced were amazing. Very little was left! The staff were attentive, friendly and caring. All in all, we are definitely going back. Definitely exploring the menu and definitely letting our friends know if this wonderful, historic and marvellous public house.
