Pleasant pub food, bit dark

Met up with brother- and sister-in-law plus nieces for an evening meal. Wadworths ale on tap so good start for me. Sat in back room which was dimly lit for atmosphere but slightly hindered reading. Food was enjoyable and tasty with some individual quirks. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

Pleasant dinner in the characteristic town center. Good selection of beer. Delicious soup of the day and tasty main Courses. Not the best one but recommended.

Great selection of drinks, lovely, chilled atmosphere, fantastic yummy food and really nice, polite staff who even called us a taxi when I had only asked for a taxi number. Will return!

Have been here several times eating in both the bar and the upstairs restaurant bit. Good selection of good 'pub standards' and some delicious specials - sea bass on a seafood risotto was divine. Always nice atmosphere - cosy pub.

Food served all day, went for a late Sunday lunch. Food was very tasty, although vegetables not separate and portion of veg quite small. Nut roast was excellent and beef generous and tender. Order and pay at the bar £11.95 not the cheapest Sunday lunch.

The Dandy Lion is an old-fashioned pub in the centre of the quaint town of Bradford-on-Avon. There are several fine Wadworth ales on offer plus an extensive menu, although the prices are rather dear. A good place to stop during a wander around town.
