“The staff are amazing, relaxed and friendly. Made my day!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

The menu is not a la carte but good honest local food and the staff really care how you want it. You can specify any fussy eating things like sauce on the side, melted cheese. It made all the difference to this self confessed fuss pot.

“Really good Monday lunch ”
Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic traditional pub food, great waiting staff, good beer. Will definitely be returning to this pub and it's only two miles down the road from where we are moving to. Looking forward to going in a steak night.

“Superbe venue for 'Ladies who do Lunch'”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Without exception, the quality of service and food at the Golden Lion is second to none.
This venue is undoubtedly my first choice for meeting up with friends for lunch in Fareham. A wide choice of menu together with an option for portion size cannot fail to suit all appetites. The food is delicious and the staff are attentive and friendly. I would be quite happy as a lady on my own to go into this pub as the staff are very welcoming. I thoroughly recommend this venue for lunch or evening meal.

“Fab”

Had a lunch here today after a recommendation from a friend. Best veggie burger EVER (I have tried many). Served with very tasty chips and a side salad. Nice menu, lovely staff will be returning....soon.

“"Coriander"”
Reviewed January 16, 2014

Highly recommended by the "ladies that lunch on a far too regular basis"!

After eyeing up the baguettes, the waitress tempted us instead with the specials board including the homemade veggie burger & what a delight it was. Packed with flavour, probably the best veggie burger I've eaten & served with a generous portion of chips & salad, unfortunately I had no room for dessert! Have eaten here on a number of occassions and have always experienced a good meal and service to match.
