Whilst visiting friends we went to the Lysander with our two children. It was a lovely day and we sat in the beer garden. There is a great play area for them and it was very busy. We didn't realise children had to leave by 8 o clock as we had arrived through the rear entrance. The staff were very... More

We stayed over Easter on the caravan site at the Lysander Arms and had two excellent evening meals there. Absolutely fantastic food right on our doorstep. It doesn't get better than that!! The staff were very friendly and the service was quick. We ordered the standard fish and chips, which were so generous, I can't imagine what size of plate... More

We had lunch here after a shopping trip to Clifton Moor. The menu here provides more interesting items than many pub/restaurants. I chose the cured pork fillet with piccalilli puree and apple and was not disappointed. The choice on the wine list was not great, but adequate for the food on offer. It was reasonably priced. I personally found the... More

I have been quite a lot of times and not once has the food disappointed. There's a great selection of dishes. Top quality presentation and I will keep going. Great menu. Definitely Recommend for a lovely meal out.

We were led into a warm and cozy restaurant area towards the back by a very pleasant gentleman who was more than happy to talk us through the menu and the extensive wine list. We decided on the VIP burger and the Steak and Ale and... More
