I arrived on Sunday eve, and was met promptly and shown to my room, which turned out to be spacious, clean, and very comfortable, with a very clean large bathroom, with a "proper" bath.
The bed was large and comfortable, soft duvet and pillows.
I ate in the restaurant and the sirloin steak was superb, absolutely melt in the mouth with lightly battered onion rings.
The second eve I had the pan fried hake with lumpfish sauce, a real revelation. Delicious.
The hosts/staff were marvellous and friendly very courteous.
I had full breakfast two mornings and it was great.
My only niggle( there's always one) and its minor in the scheme of things. The tv in my room was temperamental, with two controls, one for the tv and one for the digi box, both had backs missing so the batteries kept falling out, and the picture was poor and kept cutting out.
But the bar and company was very welcoming so watching tv was not a priority, but updated TVs would be welcome.
I stay in many hotels, and this is one of the nicest I have been in.

Thanks Ray for your positive feedback. You were right to point out your niggle with the TV and I have passed this on to the owner.

I stay at the golden lion a couple of times a month for work and its become one of my favourite places to stay, the staff really make you feel at home and are very friendly, the rooms comfortable and the food great. My only criticism would be that the towels are very small, but that's nit picking, it's a great little hotel and worth going off the beaten track for

We telephoned ahead of our visit to see if they had a table for four people for lunch, we were told they "weren't busy" and to come down.
Surprised to find a wedding reception party just arriving at the same time - surely this constitutes busy?
Waited 15 minutes to be served, nothing so ordered from the bar. Starters were ok but the mains awful - the 'special' burger could have come from Iceland & the Hunters Chicken was an over cooked chicken breast smothered in shop bought BBQ sauce. £80 for 2 courses each - not value for money. Makes the Harvester look a fine diving establishment! Avoid.....

A lovely hotel with clean, well appointed rooms. The Management and staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food and wine is very good. We had a great set of adjoining rooms and will definitely be back.

We visited this restaurant with family members celebrating their wedding anniversary and we all enjoyed excellent food and hospitality at this lovely country pub. The choice and variety of food on the menu was exceptional and I had difficulty in making a decision in what to eat as there were so many dishes that I would have liked to sample. I shared a seafood platter with my wife for starters which was delicious and then had scallops, black pudding and bacon salad for the main course. Gorgeous! It was difficult to fit any more food in but I managed to share a cheeseboard to finish off with.

Great to hear that you enjoyed your meal. You are making me hungry listing all those menu items. There is always room for cheese!
