This is a great place to with work colleagues for an informal meeting. The food is very good and the service excellent. It opens just after 6:00pm and there are a choice of areas to sit from a snug to a large round table and further back in the pub a couple of tables with high back antique benches. There's... More

On a warm sunny day we stumbled across this pub which looked lovely from the outside. Nice hanging baskets and the windows wide open to show the tables set for lunch. The staff were very pleasant and very prompt with drinks and food. The meals were average price and quality - nothing spectacular.

Visited this pub for dinner whilst on holiday in the area. It was very busy for a Monday evening. The atmosphere was very friendly, and the candles on the table added to the warmth. We throughly enjoyed 3 courses of wonderfully cooked food. My husband had the rump steak, and it was cooked perfectly, and so juicy and tender. Probably... More

We did a day run to Bradford on Avon and raved about this lovely little town. For lunch we tried the Dandy Lion and were impressed. It's a character pub with good service and a friendly welcome, despite the massive amount of dust raising road work going on outside. But that's a temporary discomfort. I went with the prawn sandwich... More

A great atmosphere with excellent food and has managed to be consistently high standards for years. Drinks rather more expensive than the rest of town but always a nice visit

We dined here on a Monday evening and got the last table available. I think this may be because they are doing 2 for 1 before 7pm Monday - Thursday. The meal was just lovely. There was a really good choice available, and not just your typical pub grub. The service was very good too. We paid full price and... More

It was one of the few things that were open on a sunday... We both had some really nice food, especially the chips and our deserts. Great selection of ales and the atmosphere was excellent. Wonderful sunday evening!

Great little pub in the centre of Bradford on Avon. Friendly staff, good atmosphere, good selection of ales/lagers, good food. Lovely big windows that open out onto the street.
