This was my second bad experience of this restaurant, in less than a month. Living close by, we have been using the Lion for the best part of 30 years. Last night we had to wait 45 minutes for our main courses to arrive. The food was OK, although the kale was only just warm. On the previous occasion, having... More

Cold spare ribs on the sharing platter which had to be returned for reheating???? Who heard of reheating pork a second time round? Salmonella springs to mind! The rest of the food on this platter was... More

We have eaten here for years. Always been good quality & service, but on this occasion very disappointed with the service & the meals. We will give it another try though.
