There are not many pubs which boast an amazing mix of good location, comfortable welcome and great food headed up by the most incredible team in the form of Steve and Shirley. Together, they have made the Dandy Lion what it is today amd have worked so hard to produce good quality food with an interesting menu, varied choice and... More

Enjoyed dinner here with colleagues. Roasted chicken was decent but the sticky toffee pudding with salted caramel ice cream was fantastic. This pub is about a 5 minute walk from where we were staying so it was convenient and laid back for a casual dinner.

Returned here for meal after a great lunch some years back, still a lovely place, but service was less than naturally friendly, and food a little disappointing to be honest from an enticing menu selection.. maybe as it was a Monday night. Still a nice spot to stop on a trip along M4, and will try again.

Visited the dandy lion pub whilst in the area on Saturday 2nd July. Greeted by friendly staff and ordered our food. The food came out quickly and was amazing!!!! So much so my partner hasn't stopped banging on about it since we left. Would definitely return if in the area!
