We booked a table at the golden lion on a Saturday night, we were warmly welcomed, the pub has recently been refurbished and the results are amazing. There are different areas in which to eat so although it's a big area it feels cosy and welcoming. We were looked after by a very friendly chap who provided a great service... More

We visited on a Sunday when arriving in the area for a family holiday. We were told that they were only doing Sunday dinner as soon as we arrived and we said this was fine. The food was nice but the portions for the children's meal were very small (bearing in mind a lot of children aren't too keen on... More

We decided to eat here one night. The hotel has recently been refurbished and it has been done extremely well. To start I had mussels in a white wine and cream sauce. The portion was closer to that of a main course, but it was absolutely delicious. From memory it was £6.95. My main was a Gourmet Burger which was... More

Visited for lunch on a Saturday with 3 family members. Ordered a braised steak off the specials board and thought something was off when the waiter asked how I wanted it cooked (err braised steak?!). When it came he brought the grilled rib eye steak instead - explained why he asked how I wanted it cooked. Not in itself a... More

Recently refurbished. Friendly staff, range of real ale, good home cooking. Nicely finished restaurant area. A choice of real ales as well as regular beers. The steak ale pie with real gravy was our choice and was very good. Well worth trying.

Following a fantastic refurbished this place is better than ever. Perfectly designed for the business stopover or family break alike this family run establishment is a league ahead of the local competitions. The hospitality and competitiveness on price is unparalleled. The rooms are comfortable and all the luxuries you would expect. 9/10 in my opinion.

We regularly visit Corbridge to walk our dogs and up until now we've always struggled to find a decent pint somewhere dog friendly. Well not anymore, the pub has had a total makeover and is very dog friendly! Good beer and food selection also and a very warm welcome.
