We were visiting Corbridge today and found the lovely weather had brought out the crowds. We stopped in to the Golden Lion for lunch and were quickly seated in a very smart dining area, a very nice blend of traditional and contemporary. A very pleasant and polite young waitress brought us menus and took our drinks order. Drinks were fine,... More

Stopped here for lunch this week and had a real treat. Lovely quaint restaurant/pub with a really nice beer garden which we would have loved to use if the summer weather had co-operated. The food was absolutely delicious. The home made vegetable soup was huge and came with lovely fresh bread and the BLT was great. My husband had the... More

Corbridge is the place of my birth and I live 15 minutes away by train. As this is a dog friendly pub we always call in for a drink with the dog when visiting. This was the first time We have eaten there. I ordered scampi and was offered choice of hand made or fries chips, which was nice. My... More

We came upon this lovely spot by chance. A real find of a pub, newly refurbished downstairs and awaiting the same upstairs. The room is comfortable and clean, but could benefit from the awaited facelift. Pleasant though. The food in the bar is excellent, and the service is exemplary. Will come again

Really disappointed with service at bar. Was in queue and then upon arrival of a local was put to back of queue. Felt my money wasn't good enough, so left. Went to wheatsheaf, where we were very much welcomed as tourists.

Hi Im sorry you felt you were ignored I can assure you the staff would certainly not do this intentionally as we pride ourselves on our customer service I do feel that a review of 1 star of an establishment that you have never eaten, drank or stayed in is rather harsh If you had stayed I know you would...

Lovely atmosphere at The Golden Lion and the staff were all lovely. Very friendly and welcoming. Great with the fact we had a newborn baby with our group (although he's no bother at all). My only concern was my gammon which was very fatty and didn't feel there was much meat to it. My friend had the sane meal and... More
