“Good local place to eat.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2011

The Lion has improved over the last few years under new ownership. The menu is a little limited depending on your taste but overall the service and food is good. More like Pub food than a Dining Room if you know what I mean. Depending on who the cook is on a given day it could effect the food quality but generally the experience is good. In the summer months they have a patio with live entertainment.

“A Friendly Lion in Stouffeville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2011

The Lion is a combination of a neighborhood pub and restaurant. The Pub has all the atmosphere of a friendly pub with lots of draft beers on tap, a local clientele and the mandatory dart board. The restaurant is large and staffed by friendly servers who are knowledgable about the menu and as prompt or slow as you prefer.There is also an
outdoor patio area with umbrellas and well spaced tables.
The food, certainly a cut above typical pub food, is well prepared and substantial. Most of the atmosphere is on the pub side but the restaurant is well furnished and tables are far enough apart to allow easy conversation. Entrees are reasonably priced for the area.
I like the casual friendly service of this establishment and I especially like the fish and chips but the food is good, in general. There is a private parking lot for patrons but access is difficult and space is limited.
