Very nice restaurant for dinner, would recommend if you are in the area. The food was very good, the service was good. The beer and cider also very good. Reasonable prices.

“What a waste of a good chef”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Lovely pub in pretty village centre. Ambitious and attractive menu of sea food specials, wow! They were lovely when, eventually we were allowed to eat. However, all the good cooking came to nought because of appalling service and completely incompetent (verging on the insolent) service failure response. Sadly, a place to avoid.

“Superb fish and chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Have eaten here several times but standards seem to be getting better and better. The fish and chips I had last week were the best I've had for ages, and although not cheap (around £10 if I remember correctly) were still great value as so enjoyable.

Very pleasant friendly staff in clean and comfortable surroundings, strongly recommend a visit to The Golden Lion.

“Shame”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Revisited the Lion post the new new new Manager and was served by Assistant Manager, Oscar, who left the corks in the wines we had ordered, to go and revisit the table he'd previously been serving (for 15 minutes!)
No apology, and said he wasn't in the wrong when i questioned this new version of customer service!
Menu the same as before with a couple of 'specials' - both of which they'd run out of.
Overall although the quality of the food is good, they need to revisit the menu and improve the service.
