The Sunday roast was outstanding and definitely the best I have had in a very long time, the gravy was to die for!!!! Well worth the drive.... The chef even... More

Lovely lunch, friendly bar staff and chef, nothing was too much trouble. Very accommodating with the dogs. Cosy open fires and candles created a welcoming atmosphere. Can't wait to tell the girls!

This is a great pub full of character. Excellent food, really friendly staff and great location. The only problem is the two bars get busy and it can be difficult to get a table, unless you want to eat upstairs. We love and keep coming back time after time.

Limited menu but what we had was delicious , the mushy peas with mint was a winner, well priced and fair value and service was good..the place is clearly being re- furbed but... More

Every so often you eat a meal that's so enjoyable, you know that there's no point eating it anywhere else because it won't be that good any where else. The crab salad that I ate on New year's day in the Golden Lion was one such meal. I've since been told that the pub has recently been taken over and... More
