Changes hands so much it's hard to say!

We've been here many times and it is hard to say where this place ranks as it seems to change hands so often. I would suggest on our last visit that it's probably not worth going back, however I will keep an eye on what others are saying and we maybe tempted to give it another go!

There is a good range of beers.The menu is limited but everything we had was prepared and cooked to perfection.We could not understand why more people were not using this pub. We liked this pub a lot and will be going... More

The Lord Lyon is our new local, having moved to the area in the last month. The evening we went there, I ordered the steak for dinner, rare, always expecting restaurants to over cook my steak but the new chef cooked it to perfection! I was not disappointed at all! I can't recall what my partner had for dinner but... More

We went to the Lord Lyon last night for a work Christmas dinner. Unfortunately they had no gas to be able to cook our pre-oredered meals but did an excellent alternative of parsnip soup, cold meat buffet and delicious chocolate torte! The service was fantastic and we all had a great time.

We live locally and like to try to eat at new places, instead of sticking to the same few favourites (I won't mention them here it doesn't seem fair), so we tried the Lord Lyon recently mid-week. The service was very friendly and the pub itself has a cosy and welcoming feel, with a reasonable selection of ales and other... More

Can't thank the staff enough for being so understanding when I didn't like my first choice off the menu. Nothing is too much trouble when it comes to customer satisfaction and that is hard to find these days. Excellent customer service.

Popped into the Lord Lyon last night to check out their new food menu. Wasn't sure what to expect but I was more than surprised. The Pub is very charming with really lovely staff and a relaxed atmosphere. I expected to have standard pub grub but that was not the case. I had alot of difficulty selecting from the menu... More

My wife and I stayed here after finding it cheap on Hotels.com. I had lived in the area a number of years back, and we decided to visit the old haunts for a wedding anniversary. The moment we arrived, we were greeted with a smile and shown to our room. It was larger than we expected. Bed was comfy, décor... More
