I stayed at The Lion for two nights in what was my first ever trip to this part of the country. I was delighted by Berriew. It is a picture perfect village, dominated by an avenue of massively tall lime trees leading to the church, and with many black and white beamed houses typical of the area. There are some great rural walks nearby too (e.g. by the canal).
The Lion was also a great place to stay, right in the heart of the village and in one of the very old black and white beamed buildings. The welcome was friendly; and my bedroom, with a modern ensuite, (both with beams) was at the back of the hotel overlooking the peaceful churchyard. There are two traditional bars in the inn with a good range of drinks and food available. Although I didn't eat a full dinner at the hotel (it has a restaurant too), the snack I did have one evening was very good as were the cooked breakfasts we enjoyed in the mornings.
All in all, a very nice traditional village inn; and one to which I would have no hesitation in returning again.
