we used to love the lion but since it changed management we wont be returning, we attended as a group and noone liked their dish, some were cold, some were burned, some were small, some were big. Flavours were all off.

Brackley's most expensive public house, however super atmosphere on a Friday and Saturday night with bands, gets crowded, good food and enjoyable on a Sunday afternoon with a good roast

Family run pub restaurant tucked just behind the town hall. The menu has a variety of home made, locally sourced options ranging from light lunches through to main meals and sharing platters. There is always a minimum of 3 quality house ales available and a very good wine selection.
