I went to the Blue Lion for a meal with my parents, after having enjoyed having a drink there a few times, and seeing how busy it was on the food side.
The surroundings were very nice and the staff pleasant but we were very disappointed with the food, especially given the price of it. First of all there was actual mould on the 'freshly baked' bread, the corned beef hash did not contain corned beef but, in fact, strands of stringy meat and almost no potato and we couldn't eat most of the chips because they were green. I don't really understand why everyone raves about the place, unless we were just really unlucky on this occasion! To be fair the waiting staff were very apologetic and didn't charge us for the chips or corned beef hash but we won't be eating there again.
