Booked a table for valentines day, and WOW we were not disappointed. The food was amazing from start to finish, the staff are excellent and very attentive at all times, after our meal we went into the bar for a drink where the atmosphere is really relaxed, our only regret was that we booked our taxi home for 9.30 wished...

Booked on the recommendation of a friend, and were not disappointed. The welcome and service were good, the food excellent - large portions, well cooked and beautifully presented. The dining room was nicely decorated for Valentines day celebrations, and there was a red rose for every lady. We'll be back.

Restaurant was full, but still plenty of room in the bat area. Staff were attentive and the food was well done (perhaps a little more could be done veg-wise) but still all polished off!. Will definitely visit again.

Found this pub as it was listed as dog friendly. We were visiting our son in Nottingham and wanted to escape the city. The Lion was 25 mins away. Both the other customers and the staff were extreemly friendly. As we had our dog we could eat in the bar area for lunch. We asked where to go for a... More

Had been meaning to go for a while, lovely decor, we ate lunch in the lounge which was great, the traditional ale we had was great, definitely worth a return trip for that. Friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere

We have been here on several occasions for lunch and always been well satisfied. Today we went to the matinee at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham the show finished early so we decided against eating in the City instead we travelled to The Lion. We were rewarded by an excellent meal and good beer, my choice was the belly pork... More

Came for a family birthday celebration for Sunday lunch. The service was nothing to shout about and it seemed to be being run by kids (no one in charge?) The food was luke warm, beef tough, veg needed to see some cooking. Having been to the Lion before for an evening meal I left this time feeling let down and... More
