Good food, well presented. Great service with very little waiting time. This is a fab local venue, whether it be for drinks in the welcoming and often bustling bar area, a good meal or a for a bit of live music on a Saturday night. Apparently they have lovely rooms to stay in too!

Had a nice evening here - rooms were comfortable, clean and the service was very good. Great breakfast! The pub was also a lot of fun - particularly sitting outside with the locals. Overall a very good stay.

Although the restaurant side of this establishment is very good , the house keeping side of the business from our stay in room 12 needs some attention , which as you can see from the below areas are not that significant but would make a stay first class and very memorable . The amount of black mould around the windows... More

Stayed two nights at beginning of August. Excellent rooms and breakfast. Dined in the bar in the evening with the same menu on offer as the restaurant. Food and beers very good. The food, service and location all combine to make this hotel highly recommended.

Our family (with two young children) planned an evening out and the Golden Lion was recommended. You will need to book a table as it is very popular. The food was wonderful and we thought it was reasonably priced, particularly the children's menu. Vegetarians are also well catered for. There are a good selection of drinks available in the bar...

We booked a family room and got two rooms together with a shared bathroom, which was perfect for us. The rooms were well designed and furnished and clean. A slight amount of noise from the pub/restaurant downstairs. Slight smell of cooking along the corridors. Breakfast and dinner were very good. Staff were efficient and friendly.

We had booked for two nights as early as Janaury this year. We received a telephone call on the day before our arrival whilst we were on the coastal path to tell us that they had double booked us the second night. The manager was deeply apologetic. They arranged for us to stay locally, took money off our bill and... More

Well re-furbished in recent years this old Inn is so memorable because of the super-efficient staff. Their friendliness seemed warm and genuine and never got in the way of their professionalism. It was a very relaxing night as we neared the end of our coastal walk. We were a group of eight and all enjoyed our meal in the busy... More

The first thing that makes it so good is the staff. As the restaurant is always busy and the hotel has 11 rooms there are plenty of them. They always seem to have a smile and are willing to help. You just feel good staying here. The bedroom was quite small and ours (number 2) had no view but was... More

The Golden Lion in Newport has 13 modern bedrooms, a wonderful restaurant, a beer garden and a rustic bar. The restaurant and bar meals are well-prepared and very good. There are parking spaces opposite and behind the pub. The service is excellent. Within walking distance there are stunning views along the coastal path, an estuary and an almost empty sandy,... More
