What has happened? So disappointed. Used to be really nice here but won't be going again. Too bright, cheap pine tables, limited menu...like being in an outdated cafe. Food was OK. Probably nice to sit outside in the courtyard for a drink or even to sit in the pub area to eat...but the ambience in the restaurant area is in... More

Poor food and service marred our evening with friends. We discovered that the table we were guided to was unclean and had to request for it to be cleaned. The platter to share of hams with cheese was nice. However the main course, particularly the paella was poor with only a few prawns and too much rice. Whilst the service... More

I have stayed several times in the ensuite B&B rooms here. There are 2 rooms, one double and one slightly larger twin room. Both rooms are beautifully furnished, are very clean and are in the view of the Pub courtyard. Most recently i stayed in the Coach Room. The Bar has a great choice of Ales including local breweries and... More

We visited this country pub for Sunday lunch. It was so disappointing. The mushroom starter was something you could rustle up at home in 5 minutes and the roast just looked sad. A very small flat Yorkshire sat on medium to well cooked beef (we both ordered rare) with vegetables that tasted 3 days old. The roasties were good but... More

We booked out the entire restaurant for this special occasion. Charlotte and her staff were very attentive and all the details were managed well. The food was excellent, it arrived promptly and all at the same time. The wine flowed and a good time was had by all.

A big thank you to Carlo, Charlotte and the team at the Blue Lion for a terrific tapas evening for 24 to celebrate our daughters 21st birthday. Nice food and great atmosphere. Carlo kept in touch before the evening to ensure everything run smoothly and nothing was too much trouble. The birthday cake made by the chef was to die... More

Nice decor, atmosphere and good service, but severely let down by over priced and under impressive food. We were here on a Friday evening, group of 9. We were asked to choose our food earlier in the week, which wasn't feasible and were told it would lead to a longer wait.... Which it did. We found this odd, regular Friday... More

We decided last minute to try the Blue Lion. The bread/olive sharing platter was ok but we were disappointed to be served only white bread and a better quality olive oil would have been better. We had to wait some time for our mains but they were definitely worth waiting for, my sea bass was very good. We will return... More
