Enjoyable pub food, busy atmosphere

Dandy Lion does not appear from outside like the usual pub, being in a former shop premises, but once inside it is very much a pub, with the bar taking almost all of one side of the long low ground floor, and a restaurant area upstairs.

We arrived at the Dandy Lion on the recommendation in a holiday cottage. We should have discarded this information! At first glance, it seemed fine - if a little over priced for drinks - but at nearly £8.00 for 2 pints, this appears to be the norm here. We ordered 2 meals - 1 sandwich with a bowl of soup... More

My wife and I have had fine dinners here many times before but we also enjoy the "regular" pub food as well. Our kids really enjoyed the meal on our most recent visit.

This pub has a warm and welcoming feel to it, a range of beers and good pub grub. What's not to like?

We had a bunch of starters that were great, two salads, and a sticky toffee pudding to split. It was very nice food, and the pudding was divine!

Friendly staff. We enjoyed the smaller bites menu but there was a very good choice on the menu. It was quite when we arrived at 6.30 but by the time we left it was packed deservedly so.

Not awful, but not great either. Exactly what you'd expect from a pub meal. Service standard, portions and prices fine, although the fish dish one of us had would never be seen as generous with the main ingredient! Good selection on beers on tap.

Staff were very friendly and polite. Me and my partner stayed at the Beeches farmhouse for two nights and ate here both nights. Food was so nice we just had to go back. I would definitely recommend booking a table gets busy very quickly. We were very impressed.
