The golden lion is a great place to stay!! The staff were friendly and helpful. There is plenty of parking, and the pub offers a great selection of beers too. The beds are comfortable and for the money we paid offers great value for money. There are a few other pubs not too far away easily walkable!! Would recommend.

Staff friendly and room small but comfortable. However - not for women! No hairdryer, no direct phones to reception (in pub over the road), no shampoo, no sweeteners. Had to wash hair with bar of soap!

Such a lovely warm atmosphere with very friendly poeple. Stayed in the accommodation in the pub and in the White House on a separate occasion and have fallen in love with that property. The girls that work there lianne and Kim are the loveliest staff I've Come across.

Very friendly welcome from lady behind the bar. She showed us to our room number 7 on top floor up very steep steps. As soon as we opened the door it was like walking into a fridge. You could feel the draught from the window. The radiator was turned up to the max but it was cold. The quilt on...

This place is a little strange if you are not prepared. I went into the nice looking pub with sky sports on a big screen and was taken across the road to another house that had several rooms inside. It feels like you are in a separate lodging with my double room being a good size with it's our bathroom....
