A fantastic, proper country pub
Feb 2019 • Friends
Very friendly landlady and bar staff. The food is fantastic! I highly recommend the sausage and mash (sausages are sourced locally from Harvel Farm) - you need to book in advance, especially if you want a Sunday roast as they get booked up quickly. Drinks are very reasonably priced. Dog friendly. Also horse friendly, we often stop in the garden at the front for a pint while we're riding.

Beer festival
Aug 2017 • Family
We devided to visit this pub yesterday for the beer festival and free music. I was very dissapointed, disgusted and annoyed that the inside bar staff were criticizing the musicians, especially the female singers (considering every single musician that played from 12.45pm up to 7pm - gave their day up and played for FREE) hence the 1 star, which I have no choice but to give. I think it's disgusting that they had the nerve to convey their distaste openly for punters to hear. I'd like to see them get up on stage and sing, if they think so are better!

Large Cycling Group
Dec 2017 • Friends
About 20 of us, had phoned ahead and called in our lunchtime orders, the day before our visit.

There is a large rear garden where bikes can be safely locked up, and upon entry a large table had been set aside for our Group.

Drink orders were efficiently taken and the food arrived shortly thereafter. The food is if a high standard and well presented at a fair price.

The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating.

The bathrooms are also kept very clean.

I very rarely award 5 stars , but the Golden Lion fully deserves.

Great luncheon stop for cyclists
Jan 2017 • Friends
18 of us called in today for lunch. We had phoned ahead to make a reservation and to submit our orders in advance.
When we arrived we were welcomed ( something missing at most Pubs), seating was arranged, and our food and drinks promptly served.
The staff ( Landlord and Landlady) were so accommodating and friendly, the food was well presented and fairly priced ,and the Pub has a really nice, relaxed atmosphere. Even the locals were friendly .
The bathrooms are also kept very clean.
All in all, a really nice, relaxed , friendly and welcoming public house, which thoroughly deserves support from the general public ( and cyclists).

Nice to see a good country pub with very friendly people and great food. Much better than all the big chain pubs . Well worth a visit.

Don't eat for a week before going......
Jul 2015 • Couples
I hadn't been to the Golden Lion for ages - and I have no idea why. The welcome was excellent and the food even better. Great for a family or for couples, the decor is good but wait until the main course arrives! Can't wait to get back there again - but it's a bit of a trot from Brisbane so I'l have to wait..... 8-)

Sunday roast is wonderful
May 2016 • Friends
Stopped at this lovely little pub on an off chance (we had lost our way)and it was a gem in the middle of the countryside.
We were made very welcome and the staff were friendly, helpful and so pleasant.
The roast dinner was great, well cooked and full of flavours.
Definitely worth a visit for all the reasons I've written. 👍👍

Proper country pub

One of the nicest pubs I've been to in a long time. Quaint, friendly and lovely food. The couple running the pub make you feel welcome rather than just a customer - definitely be going back.
