Gorgeous food. We live locally and we had dinner on the Saturday the 25th, and when we fancy a good dinner we go the Lion. Two of us ordered sirloin steak and they were of good size and succulent. My son and daughter had burgers. All was very good, tasty and plentiful. The Staff were very friendly. Worthwhile to visit

Had not been for a couple of years. Better than I remember. Very extensive menu, really good selection. Fish fillets, fish cake as starters, blade of beef, cheddar and leek pie, salmon and the ubiquitous burger for mains. One summer pudding and 4 spoons for desert. Really well decorated and furnished, lively atmosphere staff are friendly and helpful. Recommended.

Booked a table for three , the bar was buzzing and very busy , went through to our table and checked the extensive menu , everybody ordered Fillet steak and we shared two starters between the three of us , the steak was from our local butcher (Stoppards) and it was one of the best steaks we all have had...

We were a party of four ( including my disabled mother ) and we could not have been made more welcome . The restaurant was exceptionally busy due to a large party - but this in no way detracted from our experience as the staff were very professional and attentive. The food was very good with a wide and varied... More

My friend and I went for our annual birthday lunch, Food was excellent, service excellent and the restaurant area is lovely and relaxing. The food is well presented, finishing touches when ordering fish and chips { chips arrive in a mini frying basket } are quite unique. Would definitely recommend
