“A great night out at a traditional pub!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

I regularly visit the Golden Lion and I can honestly say I have always received great food and fab service. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the traditional pub menu offers something for everyone. Sunday lunch is a favourite for my family and is excellent value for money. This evening we decided to stay for the quiz evening and all had a brilliant time.

“A bit of a disapointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Second time here, the Sunday Lunch was very traditional, the portions a bit small and the flavour a little too bland, especially the gravey, having said that the vegetables were tasty, not over cooked and the staff very attentive. The last time I visited, the end of last year the strandard seemed higher,
I will more than likely try it again as it does have a good reputation and we may have hit a low day.

“Also Disgusted”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Our group was made to feel very unwelcome when one of us, a very frail and elderly man, dropped some of his crisps on the floor. The barlady reprimanded us as if we were children,
