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

Stopped for a drink on trip South. It was pleasant enough but the proportion of second home owners and tourists seemed to have take the character away from establishment. The gardens out the back were good just a shame that like all others the smokers leave their stench. So nothing really wrong but just a shame the tourist dollar starts... More

Just got back from Sunday lunch at The Golden Lion. There were seven of us and the service and food was excellent. A wide choice of food from a interesting and varied menu. Everyone enjoyed the meal and I wholeheartedly recommend a visit, you will not be disappointed.
