Once again a very nice lunch at The Golden Lion. The staff could not be more helpful, getting a chair with arms for my elderly mother-in-law and making sure we had all we needed. It is a very friendly place and the food is good...More

We've been to this pub several times and never been disappointed. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The food, while not overly complicated, is always tasty, well cooked and fresh - just what you should get at an English country pub. We'll be back...

nice looking pub but the food was very bland and boring. Not a huge range to choose from. would not recommend.

Today 5 colleagues with 3 of our husband/partners had a beautiful Christmas lunch here. We do 'come here often' but it's always very special @ this time of year, friendly staff & atmosphere & lovely food.
