“Dogs allowed..!”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

This pub has a nice, relaxed ambiance, perfect at the end of a long hiking day. We expected pub-food. So, we were pleasantly surprised at how delicious our order turned out to be, especially as we had ordered the only vegetarian dish on the menu. The chef brought out the entree himself. The soup we ordered was also rather tasty.
Dogs (on leash) were allowed in the pub, which added to the relaxed charm of the place.
Quality of live music left much to be desired. More people left after each song.!
Go there for a relaxed evening, beer and good food.

“Excellent”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Visited last week with a group of friends, didn't expect anything special but we had a fantastic time!
The food was all freshly made and delicious, I had the steak and it was cooked perfectly, it was served with the nicest pepper sauce I have ever tasted, grilled mushrooms and tomatoes and homemade fries.
My friends had homemade burgers and some had the steak and ale pie and they all loved their food too.
The service in the golden lion was great and there was a really good atmosphere in the pub. We will definitely visit again when in the area!
