    The food and staff were very good and can't fault, just lacked a bit of atmosphere if I am honest.

    It was like a Private dining room as we did have a dog and we used The Top Bar. Only issue was the difficulty in settling the bill. We wanted to split between two people and suggested £85.00 per couple, the “system” pushed us to accept £84.99 for one and £85.00 for the other !!! I.e the waitress had to do service charge per payment. !

    Birthday treat with friends. Starters were disappointing. Tomato and chilli soup caused severe indigestion. Crab cakes mainly potato. Burger was served on a small board,the brioche bun had been toasted too long and shattered on cutting. The chips were frozen and not even decent quality. If you can’t serve good homemade fries then it’s hard to call it a proper restaurant. The rump steak hadn’t been trimmed and was spoiled by the quantity of sinewy inedible pieces. The mushrooms with the steak were sparse and poor. The baby onions were not sautéed properly and the tomato was the cheapest that you could find. All in all a very very disappointing.

    This is my second holiday trip to this area, and, once again, The lion didn’t disappoint. The menu is not extensive but the quality of food, presentation, service and ambiance are really up there. My party of four chose three different starters and two different mains. The drinks menu is extensive. Good selection of beers on fraught, including superb local ales. We all enjoyed our chosen meals and were very happy with the bill. Thank you to all the staff at The lion

    Really beautiful meal. Only small negatives were the flowers on the windowsill had a lot of ants in and around them. Also once finished we waited a while and had to ask to pay.
