Revisited the Lion post the new new new Manager and was served by Assistant Manager, Oscar, who left the corks in the wines we had ordered, to go and revisit the table he'd previously been serving (for 15 minutes!)
No apology, and said he wasn't in the wrong when i questioned this new version of customer service!
Menu the same as before with a couple of 'specials' - both of which they'd run out of.
Overall although the quality of the food is good, they need to revisit the menu and improve the service.

Had a lovely three course meal. All homemade food, staff extremely friendly, helpful and polite. Food was very fresh and tasty. Reasonably priced too. A lovely place for a meal set in a lovely village. Will definitely return!

We visited the pub for a meal last week. We had to wait a little too long for our meals as it was very busy, probably because of the quiz taking place; however, the staff were very apologetic and offered us free drinks for the wait. When the meal came it was excellent in taste and also value for money - I had the fish and chips. I would certainly recommend popping in for a meal here or just for a drink. I will certainly go back.

Golden lion provides good pub food in magor which doesnt have a lot of restaurants. There is a good variety of draft beer and the menu was extensive with the usual fare you would expect in a pub. I orderdd the sirlion steak which was pretty well executed, the cheese advertised on rhe menu was not avail but the waitress was quick to advise when i was ordering. The starter was a prawn wanton which i find overpriced.

Set in a tiny hamlet this pub is great. Really friendly staff and delicious food. It's been nicely furnished inside and out. A great menu of traditional pub favourites, one of which is faggots, mash and peas. It was immense, really delicious. We'll definitely be heading back and taking friends/family with us. Only around half an hour drive from Bristol too. Handy!
