We visited the Lion at the weekend with friends from Bromley and were very pleased, one of the best meals we have had for a long time. Starters were imaginative, well presented and tasty. Main courses like the blade of beef were very tasty and the meat just fell apart, the hand battered fish and chips was huge, lovely fat... More

Had a table for three for an early lunch; no starters, just three mains. As I have stated above the waiter/ waitresses can't do enough for you.

We arrived at around 2.30 for a late lunch and was told the restaurant was closed, but could eat in the bar even though there was people still in the restaurant, no real problem as the bar is good, as I have visited here many times before. I had a pint of pedigree which was sour. I told the guy... More
