My partner and I stayed at the Golden Lion over a weekend in May. The hotel is located in the heart of the village and we can't recommend it highly enough. The staff are all very friendly and we had a very enjoyable stay. A great breakfast was included in our room rate and the accommodation was very comfortable. 10... More

Took kids and they had a great time - friendly staff. Nice old pub, clean with good range of drinks. Good public transport - bus / train, limited parking - but who wants car when you are going for a pint.

Called in for lunch. Menu isn't huge, but everyone of us were both delighted, and surprised by the quality of the food. Including the veggie amongst us who said the super food lasagna was 'fabulous', and the best she'd ever tasted. As an added bonus its doggie friendly, and the staff couldn't do enough to make our visit enjoyable. Would... More

Found the Golden Lion last year on a bank holiday in Corbridge. My friend and I had lunch there and were really impressed.......Good food and service. We went back there yesterday....( Saturday 02/05/2015 ) to find it under new ownership. We thought it good before, now even better. The food is cooked straight from order, no more microwaved peas etc,... More

Popped in for lunch while on a Northumberland Tourism Ambassadors course and was extremely impressed. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Can thoroughly recommend this pub to visitors to Corbridge and surrounding areas.

We called in here on Saturday night prior to going out for a meal and the place was dead. You would never think you were in a lovely village like Corbridge when you are sitting in this pub. Not sure if I would go back, far too quiet and no atmosphere whatsoever.
