another truly exceptional meal at the Golden Lion. The staff are attentive and efficient, good choice of menu, with some exciting specials. Strongly recommended but so as not to be disappointed, make sure you book. As a fall back you can eat in the bar.

On arrival we were greeted by a very pleasant person (who was also serving behind the bar). The room was exceptional - everything 'go large' from the room and bed to the bathroom; even the bedroom window was large letting a lot of light into the room. The room was very clean and the bathroom had up market toiletries, All... More

A truly great place to explore Pembrokeshire from. The staff are incredibly friendly, the food very good and a great selection of local beers. Having stayed this weekend, they couldn't have done anything more to welcome us and to ensure we enjoyed our stay. If the pillows hadn't been rock hard I would have given a 5* rating.

we stayed for one night on the last weekend of the five nations rugby. It was very busy and the staff coped admirably with the many varying demands of the customers (food, booze, rugby watching etc.). They kept a friendly persona to everyone all the way through what was a very long day. We had lunch and dinner at the... More

Just had 2 days at the Golden Lion and had a really good time. The meals we're really very very good as was everthing else about our stay. The rooms are lovely and comfortable and staff very pleasant and helpful. A great country inn in a wonderful part of Wales. Will be going back in May.

Went to north Pembs for the day and the Golden Lion was recommended to us by a friend. Sooooo glad we popped in for lunch. Friendly staff, clean place, food not only tasted delicious (best lasagne I have ever had) but it was brilliantly presented. Will definitely be returning when we venture north again

Had a fantastic three days at the Golden Lion. Great service, great people. I will return to win a game of pool! The bar staff are helpful and fun too. It's a great place to explore the great beaches and countryside. Looking forward to our next trip.

This is the fourth time we have stayed here - always at this time of year when they have a three nights for two offer. It is the perfect combination of a lively local pub with an excellent restaurant (deservedly busy despite being the post-Christmas period), and very comfortable bedrooms with a good breakfast. The service was universally friendly and... More

We have just spent 4 nights at the Golden Lion - excellent spacious guest rooms with en suite bathrooms and great pub atmosphere with good food. A daily table d'hote menu for resident guests plus an a la carte menu to choose from at a small supplement. You can dine in the restaurant or in the bar. They offer some... More

This was our 6th New Year at the Golden Lion. Initially booked for 4 nights we added another night at the end. The area is lovely for walking with some beautiful views. We ate at the Golden Lion each night. The menu covers lots of pub favourites but the specials are a real treat. Maple Chicken with pepper and roasted... More
