“Did we pick a bad night???”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

We visited the Lion on a Saturday night for a quick meal as we were both feeling too lazy to cook after returning from holiday.

It was difficult to find a table. Not because there were a lot of diners but because of a lot of drinkers enjoying the cheap drinks!
It was to be expected I suppose as it is a pub after all.
We eventually found a table and ordered a burger meal and a mixed grill.

It wasnt the quickest service and when the meal did arrive it wasnt the hottest.The table was still littered with dishes so it was a case of putting our plates down and picking up the dirty ones!
They seemed to be a little short staffed to cope with both the busy bar and to wait and clear the tables.

I know others have spoken highly of the Lion so perhaps we caught it on a bad night.

The prices are good, but on our visit the food and service were not.

“Good local pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

One of the best Wetherspoons pubs that I have been to! Food is always served quickly and prices are extremely reasonable!
Would recommend to anyone and one little tip, try and get a seat near the open fireplace in the middle of the room.

our last visit here was a Friday lunchtime, very busy, and tried the 'Gourmet' Mexican Burger meal (plus drink) which I really enjoyed.
