Visited The Golden Lion in Tipton St. John today with my partner and 3 month old son.
Firstly the greeting was warm and friendly from all of the staff, we were taken to a nice table in the family area, which as far as family areas go is very nice also!
I had the smoked trout pate starter which was exceptional. Very simple, homemade, and light to eat.
Followed by the main courses; Braised pheasant for myself and chicken in a creamy leek sauce for my partner which were both also delicious, served with roast potatoes, vegetables and cauliflower cheese.
(If i was going to be incredibly picky the pheasant was perhaps a little dry. However, I generally eat meat very rare so this is definitely more of a preference then a complaint.)
We had a slight mis-hap involving a glass of wine which the waitress accidentally knocked but she dealt so well with it that we were both impressed.
For dessert we shared a creme brûlée which was again very good.
If you are in the area then The Golden Lion is a fantastic spot for lunch.
We will definitely be visiting again soon.
Great Job Guys.
