Having been a customer of the Lyon years ago, I was amazed by how much it has changed. The restaurant was so relaxing and the lady that was serving us was so friendly and helpful. I think her name was Donna. She new the menu and was able to comment on the choices I couldn't decide between. The bar staff are all so approachable and I had a fab evening. I will definatally be going again, and telling all my friends about it. A credit to Wellingborough

On behalf of the Golden Lion, as two former employees, we saw a recent review and would just like to make it clear that every member of staff working there gives 100%. They make a fantastic team.

Had a get together with some friends,the menu was varied and the food cooked to perfection,service was very good and not rushed,the only down side for me was the cheese board,the selection of cheeses was bland,with a few sticks of celery and grapes etc,poor value for a shared plate at almost ten pounds(just for desert).
Live music was a bonus and the atmosphere all round was great.I have lived near the Golden Lion for many years and have seen the revival in its fortunes and really recommend it

Had heard good reviews about this place and wonder why we hadn't been before now! The quality of food, presentation and service were excellent. We will definitely be back.
