Stayed here for one night in February. The rooms are ok but pick one away from the alleyway fire doors so your not disturbed at night . I choose to eat in the bar rather than the more formal and quiet restaurant in the evening but having had one drink in the pub I decided pretty quickly to go to... More

This is on our list of "must-do's" when we are visiting family back in Pembrokeshire. Dining here is always a warm and tasty experience. Whether you want scampi and chips, something with an Asian twist, or the freshest local seafood or farm produce, there is always plenty to appreciate. Love the dining room and staff. Quaint, welcoming, don't pass by... More

I have just returned from a weekend in a very wet Newport. However, the weather didn't dampen our spirits. Our stay in the golden lion was without fault. Great food, friendly staff, excellent service and a cosy atmosphere. Everything you need for a relaxing weekend away. The staff were very helpful, advising us on where to go on a damp... More

A bit expensive for pub grub to be honest but very nice. Ï had the lamb chops with garlic potatoes and veg - delicious. Hubby had the fish and chips which he also enjoyed. Staff were very friendly and the meals were delivered in a friendly and efficient fashion. We both had an alcoholic drink and the bill was just... More

Had lunch whilst on holiday in area. Sunday carvery offered better than average pub food and good service although they were very busy. The Blackstone Brewery beer is to be recommended. We had a table by the window at the back of restaurant and it was very good to have view into garden and by light. Also relatively quiet although... More

Having left the Industrial areas of South Wales we were driving west and were determined to stay in country pubs/inns. En-suites were essential. We stumbled across this wonderful place probably because it was easy to pull off the road and park. The rooms are large and very comfortable. I think all of them are to the rear of the hotel...

We had a late lunch here and were not disappointed. We ate in the bar area, having the Sunday lunch. There was plenty to eat and it was very tasty. The part of the bar we were in was a bit crowded, but there was plenty of space elsewhere. The staff were very friendly. The pub car park gets very... More

Booked for 6 people because we couldn't get in to Blas at Fronlas and they recommended here. Didn't expect to find a lovely dining room to the rear of the pub which was full wit a lovely atmosphere. The food was of a very good standard and good value for money. The presentation of some the starters was outstanding !... More

Lovely two night break at the Golden Lion. Well appointed bedrooms with all that you'd require for a comfortable stay. Proper country inn with a more formal dining room - although the menu is the same for both. Outside, covered seating at the roadside front of the inn and also seating in the rear garden. Just a five minute walk... More

Usually love coming here but disappointing visit today. Booked to have food in the bar as restraurant was busy which wasn't an issue but it took 3/4 for mains to arrive. There was no explanation for why the food was so late, or no apology or warning. I didn't complain but others did who I overheard and the barmaids were... More
